The folk at Backstreet Bargains (Trademe) are fabulous - very helpful and obliging, and fun people to deal with. And they have such great fabric (as well as other odds and ends) at great prices - and awesome bundles of roll ends / cut pieces at bargain prices. Just one warning - fabricaholics stay away - they'll trap you with their lovely wares, laughing evilly all the while ;-> ;-> (I'm hooked!)
From Cathy – TradeMe customer in Dunedin
I was asked if I would write a few words regarding Back Street Bargains, well here goes, - Fantastic service - Brilliant prices - Obliging staff - Good ole Brucie one of a kind - Ngaire the sane one "well almost" - No seriously though the service I get is brilliant if they don't have something I need they will hunt it down for me all they say is "leave it with me". They are very motivated to please their customers and provide a service over and above what you get in a retail store. Quite often my orders are a I needed it yesterday type they go out of their way to get it to me by the next day, Brilliant cant ask for
anything better than that.

I buy all my costume fabric for my dance school from Bruce and his team – and have done so for approximately 30 years. I have always found everyone at Backstreet Bargains to be extremely helpful, friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make sure I get exactly what I am looking for. Nothing is ever a problem and every visit to their premises is a pleasure. Bruce ensures the quality of fabrics remains high, while the prices remain extremely competitive. Backstreet Bargains has my highest recommendation to anyone wanting quality fabric at a reasonable price.

I would like to take the time to thank you and your staff who do an excellent job, are always punctual in sending any samples or fabrics and offer the most competitive rates in New Zealand. Over the last twenty years I have always had prompt, courteous and outstanding customer service for both myself and my many students. I never hesitate in doing business with you and always recommend Backstreet Bargains whether it be making a purchase on line or dropping into your wonderful warehouse.

“My name is Julie Vandy, I have a small business here in Hamilton called Butterflies and Diamonds.. For over a year now I have been purchasing fabrics from Sheryl, Rachael, Ngaire and Bruce at Backstreet Bargains. I always find the team cheerful, helpful full of knowledge and happy to help, going that extra mile to ensure I have what I need. I feel that they can always spare the time to help me find the right colour, or fabric have a good eye for selection of colour combinations and a great knowledge of their fabric ranges. I am always happy to recommend them to anyone, they make me feel like I am part of the Backstreet family.”
Hello there - I just wanted to thank you for your amazing service! I only ordered fabric yesterday down here in Dunedin and it arrived first thing this morning! Amazing!
In case you are wondering what on earth I am doing with so much stuff, I’m sewing things for kindies and donating fabric to Pacific Pathways, which is rebuilding schools and kindies in Vanuatu after a series of natural disasters. they have no government funding for kindies there and very little in the way of gear, so I’m making toys, wall hangings, playmats etc out of hardwearing/bright fabric that will stand up (I hope) to some serious humidity. I also have a preschool in Tanzania I’m sewing for - I’m sure all will appreciate your quality fabrics.
I first found out about Backstreet Bargains about 2 years ago and have been purchasing my fabrics there ever since. The team at Backstreet Bargains are an absolute pleasure to deal with, they are extremely helpful, and the fabric quality and variety is outstanding. I love the fact I can select a quality fabric at a great price which in turn means I can create a beautiful garment and pass those savings on to my customers. Thanks guys and keep up the good work!
