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.

Salvos – North Melbourne

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
Description

Given it’s location amongst the ever increasing throng of cafes and restaurants on Errol Street I was expecting this North Melbourne Salvos to be a hive of activity when I visited on Saturday morning.  This was not the case.  It was very quiet, with just a couple of others milling around the store. The stock included clothes, furniture (couches, entertainment cabinets, mattresses), homewares, accessories, children’s wear, toys, VHS, CDs, puzzles and a collection of bizarre frog ornaments.
