In 2011 The Watershed released the I ♥ 2nd Hand Shopping Guide. The guide promotes the variety of second hand goods and services available in Newtown.
The free guide lists 50 King Street-based retail outlets that are dedicated to conserving resources and supplying second-hand goods. Along with retailers offering vintage and second hand clothing, the guide includes businesses which offer clothing alterations and repairs, second-hand books and CDs, antiques and furniture as well as computer and white good repairs.
The I ♥ 2nd Hand Shopping Guide is available from the Green Living Centre at 218 King Street Newtown, as well as participating businesses. A digital copy can also be downloaded here:
