As you make your way down Queensberry Street keep your eyes peeled for the blue awning that adorns the entry to Community First Op Shop.  Inside you will find a strange melange of secondhand goods including clothing, shoes, records, books, VHS, lamps, mannequins, vases, homeswares, jewellery, suitcases and bags.  Amongst the chaos there were a number of stand out items – a beautifully crafted 1930s golf club, baby blue typewriter, metal chests, scales and a number of world weary suitcases.

Furniture & Antiques

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

I recently stumbled upon this secondhand store in Windsor and was pleasantly surprised by what I found inside.  The fit out is decidedly no frills but for those with a keen eye and a willingness to do a little rummaging there is gold to be found in amongst the clutter.  The hodgepodge collection includes clothing, glassware, crockery, hats, jewellery boxes, furniture, globes, framed artwork, vases, records and lots of lamps.

Mission Op Shop – Chapel Street

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Mission Op Shop was a little hectic when I visited, with staff and donations in abundance, there is potential for this opportunity shop to be quite lovely once it settles into its groove.  The front of the store is brimming with men’s and women’s clothing whilst out the back you will find books, CDs, games, records, shoes, accessories and sporting equipment – there was even a set of retro golf clubs!  The slightly disorderly stock makes for good rummaging and there are plenty of staff around to assist with any queries you might have.  The Mission is currently recruiting volunteers, offering training and a supportive work environment for people overcoming mental illness.  Donations are welcome and all proceeds from the store go towards supporting The Mission.

Brotherhood of St Laurence

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Brotherhood of St Laurence stands as proof that not for profit stores needn’t lack character or charm as this store has both in abundance.  This opportunity store has really upped its game since last time I visited with a fabulous Hunter Gather ‘fancy section’ at the front of the store, which features an array of fashionable and popular items – fur jackets, dresses, blouses, suitcases, lamps & dressers – hand-picked from the larger BSL collection.  The general stock includes books, bags, scarfs hats, shoes, clothing, homewares, furniture, linen, children’s wear, sunglasses, artwork and much more.
