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!

You will find the St George’s Parish Bargain Op Shop amongst the hustle and bustle of Racecourse Rd in Flemington.  Behind the lovely Victorian facade you will find a miscellany of goods including books, clothing, children’s wear, furniture, homewares, linen, baskets, VHS, records, belts, ties, hats, wallets, shoes, games – even a backgammon set.  This store is not for profit and the prices are very affordable so you can go nuts and not burn too large a hole in your pocket!

Savers – Footscray

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
   

 

Description

This West-side outpost of the Savers conglomerate is a whopper.  The collection of stock is huge, they even had a dedicated Halloween costume section when I visited.  Like all good secondhand megastores the Footscray Savers has an air of organised chaos, the sense of chaos was probably compounded by the hoards of people looking for Halloween costumes.  The stock here includes clothing, furniture, hats, shoes, bags, toys, homewares, sports equipment, records, books, belts, ties, sunglasses, jewellery and electrical goods.

Description

Next time you find yourself cruising down Point Nepean Rd take a pit stop at this pleasant little op shop.  Beyond the lack lustre facade you will find clothing, homewares, toys, VHS, DVDs, sporting goods, records, books, haberdashery, hats, bags, belts and loads more.  As you would expect at a country op shop such is this the prices are low and the quality of stock varies.

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.
