About NNG

Nearly New Guide is an online directory of secondhand shopping destinations throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Anyone can add listings to the directory, and owners can claim their own stores added by others. All listings are free to add, with additional perks for paid subscriptions (coming soon).

The NNG Story

NNG was founded and is run by Jess Li, an avid op shopper and web designer with an environmental science background. Jess lives in Perth, Western Australia with her husband, daughter and two cats.

Jess started seriously thrifting in 2015 and as a result about 85% of her wardrobe and home is full of secondhand finds. After not being able to find a comprehensive resource for the best and hidden gems of secondhand shopping, Jess decided to build one herself and so NNG was born!

She has been passionate about environmental protection since primary school and hopes that NNG makes it easier to choose secondhand first, making our presence lighter on the planet.

The NNG Mission

Our mission is to become the most comprehensive directory of secondhand shopping locations on the internet. We want to support a community of likeminded shoppers and retailers that build and maintain the directory through adding, rating and sharing their favourite shops, markets and other secondhand stores.

Good things come to those who thrift.
