Lucky us! We have been selected to host a boutique opp shop which they describe as aiming to be the "best in Melbourne". Selected items are put aside for sale in our shop. The models in the window are dressed for Cup Day.
There are new items with tags (probably unsold from department stores) as well as excellent condition and specialty pre-loved items. The change rooms are very good.
Currently there is a Singer sewing machine (with treadle table), and a sofa-bed, but otherwise there is not much furniture. It's nic-nacs, linen, clothing, jewellery, handbags and footwear especially.
I bought Kermit for $2. He hasn't been used - his tag is still attached.
This home-made cushion was donated directly to the opp shop - it was $5.
The opp shop first opened 2 weeks ago. I bought Jump and Target brand clothes. There is a lot to choose from.
The Gisborne Salvos is situated at:
1/50 Aitken St Gisborne.
Opening hours: 9-5 weekdays and 9-1 Saturday
Where is it? Travelling from Melbourne towards Bendigo on the Calder freeway take the first exit where the sign reads only "Gisborne". Turn left at the T intersection on the exit, travel down the hill to the roundabout with a fountain in the centre and turn left. The Salvos is on the right opposite Mitre 10 in a group of 5 new shops. Street parking is available.
I am not affiliated with the shop, just a happy customer spreading the love!
