Community Chest – South Melbourne

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
Cheap Hit and Miss Mid-size No Frills YES - NOT FOR PROFIT

 

Description

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the South Melbourne Community Chest.  This delightful opportunity shop is treasured by locals, not only for the sweet secondhand collection in store but also the great contribution it makes to the community.  The Community Chest is somewhat of an institution in these parts, it’s popularity means that stock is regularly turned over and you will always find something new on display.  All items for sale have been donated the proceeds are used to support local community groups, so you can indulge in a spot of shopping and know that you’re helping the community simultaneously – just excellent!
