A Dunedin artist has been reunited with his "pride and joy'', a distinctive studded vest.

Sam Ovens misplaced a recyclable New World shopping bag containing the studded vest, metal ringlet belt and black cap, on Gt King St, on Friday at noon.

He told the Otago Daily Times he was "gutted by the loss''.

However that despair turned to jubilation today when he was told the items were waiting for him at Number One Shoes, and ``someone obviously picked it up and took it in there''.

"It is great news,'' he said.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
