Disappointment on Glenhuntly
A friend and I were looking foreword to a day of fresh opping along Glenhuntly rd. We started at St Johns, just next to Glenhuntly station, which had a few surprises in store, particularly a cute pair of t-strap sandals. Also, they had a regular flow of customers and donaters while we were there. After making a few finds, we moved along to the 'posh' op shop, on the corner of glenhuntly and grange. Despite the suggestive tittle, the shop was far from it, aside from the glamorous prices.It was very messy, not in that intriguing 'sort to find the treasure' way, but dingy, dingy and dirty ( However, the book and crockery section was in much better condition then the clothes). I found a fantastic blue and white, gold embellished and detailed,buttoned cardigan, but for $35!!!! noo way. I appreciate that some things may be worth the weight in gold, but i just didn't feel the price of this cardy, or many other items, were justified, with no name brands, often marks or rips. Maybe it is just my bitter resentment that I wasn't able to afford my eyed-off item, but I wont be returning to scourage through the posh mess. I look foreword to other endeavours along Glenhuntly, particularly some more towards elsternwick area, to improve my mental reputation of the Glenhuntly rd op shops.
