Re loved treasures fashion parade

Melbourne cup fashion parade at White jade lunch inn,

Re loved treasures was created by mother and daughter Wendy and Sharnee Thorpe, Inspired by our love for finding and collecting treasures from op shops around the area.

It all started last summer at local markets and is now stocked in 2 shops, Illusive in Cabarita and white jade in Pottsville.

Everything has been hand made from beautiful old lace fabrics and trims, to create the graceful unique label that is re-loved treasures.

All affordable one off pieces. A sustainable label that has the environment and re using second hand fabrics as its goal.

It is all made by hand with love by Wendy at the dinning room table, So please enjoy the collection.
