I op therefore I am

I need to start this blog so that I have an outlet for crowing about my latest op shop finds; I think that I’m beginning to bore some friends. I’m a big fan of buying stuff from the op shop – clothes, shoes, bags, furniture, wool, books, toys; I even found a breast pump once.

Here are just some reasons why it’s great to op shop:

SAVE MONEY – There is always a bargain to be had at the op shop. I like expensive label clothing, I particularly like it when it only costs $5.00.

CHARITY – This is where I like my money to go; when you op shop you are doing a good deed at the same time.

SUSTAINABILITY – A great way to recycle and re-use, it’s a greener way to live.

TREASURE – I love the thrill of the chase; to find something at the op shop that is your size, your colour, your treasure basically.

There will be posts about best finds ever and ongoing commentary on what people are finding, feature op shops, treasure alerts and a link is coming to op shop names and addresses. If you live in Melbourne, Australia and would like to participate, please send me an email at bollewangenhaptoetATgmailDOTcom
