Animal Lovers Spotted in Birthday Suits

SPCA’s one-of-a-kind Boutique in Ponsonby is celebrating its second birthday and locals are invited to pop in and pull together a party outfit.

Like many of us, the team at Boutique believes it takes at least a week to celebrate a birthday so from the 15 – 21 April there will be spot prizes instore for customers who donate or purchase items. Dogs are welcome too. How very on trend.

“This community has a made a huge difference over the past couple of years and we’re blown away by the generosity of people who love supporting what we’re doing.”

“Don’t’ miss our soirée on Thursday 18 April, we’ll have complimentary bubbles, canapés, and late-night shopping, it will be wonderful,” Whitney promises.

“Dogs can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat while you browse our wide range of fashion and accessories.”

Of more than 80 Op Shops nationwide, Boutique for SPCA is the first to specialise in pre-loved designer and high-quality pieces.

“We’re very much at home here in Ponsonby,“ Whitney says sorting through racks abundant with notable labels including Burberry, Stella McCartney, Storm, Michael Kors, Coach, Deadly Ponies, Levi, Ted Baker, Anine Bing, Karen Walker, Kate Sylvester, WORLD, and Zambesi.

“There are collectible homewares and vintage items too and it’s all for the love of animals.”

Sales assistant Helen describes it as fashion that saves lives.

“It looks good, feels good, does good… giving a garment another life or buying one that has already had an outing improves the lives of animals in a satisfying sustainable way.”

SPCA is the country’s largest animal welfare charity committed to rehabilitating and re-homing neglected, abused, and vulnerable animals.

“The trade at Boutique directly supports that important work,” says Helen.

And just as it seems all puns have been avoided Whitney grins and takes the cake.

“Everyone is welcome to come celebrate with us; word is hairy styles will be instore.”

Boutique for SPCA is open seven days at 27 Ponsonby Road – near (off-leash) Western Park.
