WHAKATANE BARGAINS. Recycled labels ... If you are visiting Whakatane this is well worth a trip and I usually find some well priced treasures. This week I snapped up a Betty Monroe wrap dress for $14 and these are still in the stores at full price although you might be lucky enough to find a few on the sale rack.. I did! the Whangamata Betty monroe store had the monarch butterfly print design on sale for $49 just a few weeks ago... well how could you resist!
