So I have been having a good old rummage through my website settings and bits 'n' pieces and realised that a whole bunch of people (well, 16+) have sent me messages over the past year or so and I have been incredibly rude and ignored them completely. My sincere apologies.
Will be going through everything over the next week or so and will make all appropriate suggested changes. In the mean time, thanks so much for all the (entirely positive) feedback. Most appreciated and am so glad so many people have found it so useful.
I'll also be heading out on my bike/on the bus over the next few days to check out some of the new stores that have been popping up - be sure to give me a wave :-)
Hurrah! After a long absence, I'm back in NZ for a few weeks and aiming to update this website with everything new and exciting. I've already spotted several new shops and a few that are sadly no longer with us :-(
If you can help at all, by pointing me in the right direction of recently opened stores, or changed opening times, or relocated premises or whatever, please feel free to drop me a line. I will check them out as soon as I can - in between enjoying myself in the sunshine and catching up with old, good and new friends.
Happy shopping :-)
So From the Universe is getting some publicity, wow. How did that happen?
First it was Breakfast with Spanky on RDU 98.5 last month (gosh, I sounded so terribly English), then it was chatting to the Chief of the Charity Barns and the lovely Shabby Chic Market/Forget-me-not lady and yesterday it was a wee paragraph on page 14 of Zest, one section of The Press. I was wondering why suddenly lots of people had hit the FB 'like' button recently.
Thanks to all who have supported this little whimsical project of mine and sent me corrections/ideas/additions recently. Very much appreciated. It's still a work in progress, but onwards and upwards I say :-)
Welcome to From the Universe. This site was built for op-shoppers, retro-rummagers, vintage-vagabonds, curio-collectors and all those who adore pre-loved stuff.
There is too much stuff in this world that is thrown away. I see secondhand shopping as part of changing that, as well as being a whole heap of fun and great for any budget. From the Universe lists places that sell secondhand items in Christchurch (and nearby), for you to explore and search through at your leisure. Here's hoping you find some gems amongst the junk.
Happy shopping :-)
