Thrifting is cool. At Oasis, it’s even cooler!
At thrift shops and other used goods stores you not only find unique items and cool clothing at great prices, but you also do your bit for the environment. The “green” side of thrifting is that you’re buying products that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
From clothing to collectibles, books to bric-a-brac, furniture to fine art, thrifting at the Oasis Association charity shops in Claremont, Fish Hoek and Elsies River offers more than affordability alone. Customers choose to frequent our shops knowing they will find clean, quality items, beautiful displays, attentive staff and a happy atmosphere. Cash-strapped students, frugal moms, discerning collectors and shopaholics alike all become part of the Oasis family, not only getting more for their money, but in turn adding value to the lives of the intellectually disabled beneficiaries for whom Oasis exists.
Buying second-hand is fashionable
With the global focus on recycling, buying second-hand has never been more fashionable, nor has it been more necessary since the economic devastation of Covid. Thrifting is the new buzzword, and Oasis has tailored this concept to fit every pocket and need. Here moms find clothing, books, toys and games in good condition, for a fraction of what they would cost new. Students, homemakers and even restaurateurs browse for glassware, kitchenware, appliances, décor items and furniture going for a song. Add to that vintage treasures, a vast array of art, music from CDs to vinyl records, fabulous clothes and books in top condition and you have something for everyone. But the added drawcard is the sheer enjoyment of browsing in well-designed spaces that are clean, organised and visually appealing.
“thrifting at Oasis is a conscious choice because the money makes a sustainable difference to human lives.”
Drop off a bag of your old clothes or unused goods
Along with our drop-off recycling depot, we welcome donations of any items that are in good condition that can be sold, as the income from our shops is the lifeblood of our organisation, enabling us to provide our beneficiaries with employment, holistic care and a better quality of life. For the many customers who understand this cycle, thrifting at Oasis is a conscious choice, because their money makes a sustainable difference to human lives.
Thrift shopping really is a win for everyone — your closet, your wallet, your fellow humans AND your planet!
