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.

The Verdict

It’s wonderful to find an inspired not-for-profit  enterprise in amongst the gaggle of retailers that line Chapel Street.  The Mission Op Shop has the makings of a great store and it’s always nice to know your cash is supporting a good cause.  If you are in need of sustenance after all that rummaging, just pop next door and check out The Mission Cafe which looks delightful.  You can also hire out the Roof Top Venue which holds up to 100 people and with food and beverages supplied by The Mission Caters.  The Mission Op Shop, The Mission Caters and The Mission Cafe are all 100% not for profit commercial businesses providing a fantastic service while simultaneously supporting the community by providing training and employment to those disadvantaged by mental illness.

  1. Thanks for visiting! Your site is such a fab resource for thrifters.

    I think the op shop at 211 Chapel St is run by Prahran Mission which is part of Uniting Care rather than Sacred Heart Mission though :) Sacred Heart has an op-shop nearby at 86 Chapel St!

      Thanks for the heads up! Must have copied over the wrong link across, all sorted now :)

  2. Thank you for such a fantastic and comprehensive read on my favourite thing in the entire world – op shops! Looking forward to reading more from you. You’ve nailed it! Kel :):)

  3. I’d like to point out that the number is for the sacred heart, as well. I’m not sure if the Prahran mission op-shop even has a land line.

      Thanks for the heads up, the number has now been corrected.
