Turning second hand goods into first class care

Our charity shops are treasure troves offering a huge variety of quality pre-loved goods. Mary Potter Hospice shops are special because of their big range, good quality and great prices. We offer a wide variety of household goods, including clothing, books, homeware, collectables, electrical goods and furniture.


Our shops

We have eight op shops located in Miramar, Kilbirnie, Karori, Thorndon, Tawa, Porirua, Paraparaumu and Newlands. Our Newlands store also includes our popular Grabba Bag Bargain outlet.

Our second hand shops sell quality goods donated by our local community and are staffed by dedicated volunteers. Together, we broke our revenue records in the year ending June 2016 by raising $2 million. These funds are used to directly care for Wellingtonians with terminal illnesses and their families.
