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!

The Mill Market – Newcomb

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

I had driven past The Mill Market in Newcomb many times, for those of you who frequent the Bellarine peninsula you have most likely spotted the massive orange barn on the outskirts of Geelong.  It was only recently that I found time to pop in and rummage through what can only be described as a secondhand megastore.  The two levels of The Mill are brimming with goodies including retro speaker systems, homewares, kitchen cabinets, records, chairs, books, baskets, fishing rods, ladders, clothing, bikes, lamps, shoes, basins, rollerskates, chairs, fans, birdcages… You can even find giant plastic ice-creams in this place!

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.

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.
