What you need to know

Thrive at the Hive launched in 2019. As a team we wanted to focus on reducing landfill of homeware and clothes. Thrive at the Hive is a space to access essential items.

We stock:

  • clothing from new-born to seniors
  • kitchen and homeware items
  • shoes for all sizes
  • toys
  • children's books and;
  • some essential larger items such as buggies

Everything is donated to us by the community. We ensure the quality and cleanliness is of a high standard.

Everything is available on a pay-as-you-feel basis. This means you can give as much or as little as you like for your items. All money donations go back into our community projects.
