Reborn clothes are being given a new life in Narrogin, thanks to Jo-Jo’s Recycling Boutique.

Sisters Janice West and Christine Hall have been giving life to slightly worn clothes for the past 25 years, much to the delight of their customers’ hip-pockets.

“We specialise in designer labels but we do carry everything from very casual everyday wear to ladies dresses,” Ms West said.

“Everything has only been worn once or twice, all in beautiful mint condition.”

Products sold in the Egerton Street store are sourced from specialist companies in the Eastern States, while the business also receives luxury women’s clothing from a small list of private clients in Perth.

“We’ve got half a dozen wealthy women in Perth, that we’ve worked with for a long time, and now even source products from their daughters,” Ms West said.

“When the (school) balls were on we sold a few gowns and a lot of shoes.”

Recently, Ms West had been running a similar operation out of her shed while living in Yealering, but had to expand because of the amount of stock running through the business.

“I said if I found a shop in Narrogin that I really loved, I’d open up there,” she said.

“We had been looking around for a year and all of a sudden we found this one here.”
