The Victorian Wardrobe is a "hidden gem" located in Oamaru's Historic Precinct. It is a non-profit Victorian clothing hire service run by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers who can help anyone achieve their desired Victorian look, regardless of age, gender, and size.
We have thousands of items of Victorian apparel including dresses, ball gowns, skirts and trousers, jackets, capes, hats, suits, vests and accessories (including children's clothes). You are very welcome to browse in the shop where the staff will help you choose a single item or a full Victorian ensemble for the Victorian Heritage Celebrations or for other themed events and parties.
The Wardrobe is normally open Thursdays 10am to 4pm. From October it will be open 2 days per week and will be open every day from 14 to 21 November, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. to accommodate added demand for the Festival. Please check their facebook page closer to the dates for more details.
