For those of us with school age kids we all face the same dilema of where to buy school uniforms in Brisbane as cheaply as possible.
Most schools both public and private have a school uniform shop which can be your starting point. If nothing more than to actually check what you need to get for them. Often times the school will also have a second hand area within the uniform shop as well so make sure you always ask and check that out.
If you’re like us Joy girls we are always wanting a bargain so this is when the hunt begins
There are several online places to try for this
The 1st one being
The Sustainable school shop you pay a small annual subscription to the site but you can search for exactly what you are looking for as well as then being able to resell anything your kids have grown out of and they do the same for text books as well
Gumtree Many of you will already know Gumtree for all sorts of other things, but it is always worth checking on here to see if someone is selling exactly what you need
There is also a Facebook page called Brisbane preloved school supplies which is a closed group but you can ask to join and you will be accepted . On here you can put a request up for what you are looking for as well which is great.
There are a few shops in the malls that do sell some of the basics for schools ( you will always need to check your own schools exact requirements though )
Hi everyone Jo here I have also found some great uniform on the 4070 Community Grape Vine facebook page. You will just need send a friend request so someone can accept you and you will find some great bargains. If you live in a different postcode area try searching for your own community group online they are an awesome resource 🙂
The School Locker is another fantastic resource for uniform as well as school books and even instruments. There are several School Locker shops around the country. Just have a look at their website to find your nearest store.
The great thing about the school locker is not only are they open 7 days a week, but for all the partnership schools there is still a portion of the price that goes back to the schools P&F. If you don’t have children at any of these schools you can nominate a school for your purchase.
Happy hunting everyone.
