Picking up an original outfit for a fraction of the cost has been made a bit easier with the Give it up for Cranford campaign.
From today, a selection of clothing gathered during a recent charity drive will be displayed at Cranford Hospice shops in Napier and Hastings as part of a nationwide appeal.
"This is the second year we have done this, 24 hospice stores around the country are involved. It's good for us to combine to create some awareness together so we might reach a broader market," Hastings Cranford Hospice Shop Manager Anke Hoggett-Schnebeck said.
"The labels we have gathered are all good quality, from across the board - not just designer like we had last year."
The campaign focused on encouraging people who might not normally shop there to take a look and see what they can find.
"We want people to come in and see what cool things they can find at the Op-Shop - that's including younger people, who might want to find a bargain or alter the clothing."
Hospice shops also stock furniture, china, books and bric a brac, with all the proceeds donated to the local Cranford Hospice, which offers free palliative care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families. All shop workers are volunteers.
