I visited the Brotherhood of St Laurence shop in West Footscray on Tuesday. This is about to become a Brotherhood Clearance Centre and will be opening on Sundays.
There were no craft supplies and not many clothes but there were three huge tables full of jeans and they are all only $4 a pair. I bought 2 pairs for myself.
They also have the largest selection of books that I've ever seen in an Op Shop - fiction, non-fiction, novels, cookbooks, reference books, kids books etc. All books are only $1 each and the lady at the counter told me that they are expecting another delivery of books very soon. I picked up a few books below.
On Wednesday I visited the Salvos in Deer Park. I bought this lovely skirt below that doesn't fit me but I'm planning to make it into a handbag.
Then I discovered that there were lots of clothes where the Suzanne Grae label had been removed. I asked at the counter and the lady told me that they are all new and have been donated by Suzanne Grae.
It looks like each item has a small fault but I bought the following:
....and a huge bag of buttons!
