Our Story

& Again is an online consignment and thrift store that helps you clear out your wardrobe, resell your items and shop secondhand with ease. Our fully digital platform delivers a modern thrifting experience that’s fun and convenient for fashion lovers all over Aotearoa.

Spruce up your wardrobe

Our Tidy Kits lets you send us your unwanted items which we’ll collect, sort, and sell on your behalf. Easy peasy!

In search of a fresh, new style? The & Again marketplace keeps all the magic of thrift store shopping, without the parking hassle and opening hours (we see you, 3am shoppers). We thoughtfully select and curate each item on our platform to offer pieces that are uniquely you. Rest assured, if we wouldn’t buy it for ourselves, we won’t sell it to you.

Start Thrifting!
  • A whopping 100 billion items of clothing are produced each year. That’s about 14 items for every person on the planet. (1)

  • 60% of these garments end up in a landfill or incinerated within a year, often in developing nations for poorer communities to deal with. (2)

  • Every kilo of clothing in our landfills creates 3.6 kilos of greenhouse gases, (3) which increases carbon emissions and contributes to drastic climate change.

Hi there, I’m Wendy!

I created & Again to empower you to make better fashion choices.

Because I’ve been where you are. I know the dread of sorting out that pile of unwanted clothes. The tedious task of listing items online, dealing with buyers and hoping your stuff doesn’t get lost in transit. I was certain there had to be a simpler solution. 

More importantly, I wanted to make an impact. My parents arrived in New Zealand from Vietnam as refugees and worked hard to provide for me and my sisters. While we lived simply, we were also raised in a culture where having new things, especially clothes, was viewed as a status symbol. With respect to my heritage, there was (and still is) a negative stigma attached to shopping secondhand. 

Part of my mission with & Again is to change this stigma and reshape the way we view preloved clothing. I’m here to build a community of conscious consumers who care about the impact of their purchases. 

Thanks for being a part of the & Again journey and choosing to make a difference.

Our Responsibility


We’re committed to tackling the fashion waste crisis. 

At & Again, we care deeply about our planet and are committed to making a positive environmental impact. We make an effort wherever possible to eliminate plastic waste in our business, use recyclable packaging for all our orders and Tidy Kits, and upcycle our leftover stock through local initiatives.  

While we make our preloved goodies affordable with great deals, we also encourage you to shop with intention and consider the environmental impact of each purchase.   

We know that we’re not perfect and that sustainability is an ever-evolving conversation, but it’s one that we’re always willing to engage in. If you have any questions or suggestions about how we can do better, please get in touch here.
