Welcome to Nifty

We love vintage & considered pre-loved clothing. We love it so much that we started a flea market dedicated to selling it.

Held every few months, sellers from around Ōtautahi (and beyond) have been coming to the flea to sell their curated vintage and pre-loved clothing since 2018.

In October 2022 we opened a store, so our lovely locals can now shop and sell pre-loved clothing with Nifty 6 days a week.


If there’s one thing that we love as much as the clothes, it’s the community that comes with it - Pop into the store and swing by one of our markets. We love to see new and familiar faces.

How It All Started

Having grown up in Ōtautahi, Rosie felt the city needed more spaces for young people to shop in a way that was fun, inspired, and didn’t harm people and planet.

In June 2018, The Nifty Markets was born, the first market being held at Benny’s Barber Shop in Sydneham (pictured).

The Nifty Markets was a space for local creatives and secondhand clothing sellers to sell their pieces, and a place for locals to shop fashion sustainably, support local business, and meet like minded folks.

The markets continued to be held in various venues around the city such as; Isaac Theatre Royal and La Voûte (pictured).

In October 2022 Nifty took the leap to brick and mortar by opening a [pink] clothing consignment store in Cashel Street. The flea markets are now held out of our building, once a season. Upcoming markets dates are posted on our social media.



Consignment means that we sell clothing on behalf of others. We feel passionate about helping people find clothing they feel truly represents their style. The consingment model helps us to do this in a way that is ciruclar. You can sell your clothing in-store with us, and use the sales to purchase new clothes (or use it as cash). We strive to create a space where people can shop for clothing that truly represents their style. Learn more about the selling process here.
