About us

Kia ora and welcome to Thrifty Baby! 

What started as a passion project, quickly grew into a successful business over the years. Here at Thrifty Baby, our goal is to minimise waste and help you shop sustainably for your little ones from the comfort of your couch for the fraction of the retail price. From newborn to 10 years. We are also offering busy parents a simple, hassle-free way of making money out of their outgrown kids gear with our Thrifty Baby Wardrobe Clearout Service.

Meet the team:

My name is Gabi, a mum of 2 kiddos. I run this page and everything that is involved behind the scenes, including website build, design, sourcing, photography, listing, marketing, packaging, tax admin - the list goes on.

I've studied environmental science and made a promise to myself when had our fist born that I would buy preloved items for us as much as possible. The environmental damage of the fashion industry is increasing as the industry grows. Did you know that it is the second most polluting industry next to oil!? And Voilà... Thrifty Baby was born!

By choosing preloved you are not only kind to our planet but also supporting a New Zealand small business while being thrifty with your budget! I am looking forward to sharing this experience with you.
