Located on Johnston St, just a stones throw from the comparatively glamourous vintage stores of Smith Street, this Vinnies op shop is great for the thrifty shoppers amongst us. The range is diverse in both quality and typology; clothes, hats, shoes, leather-goods, wall hangings, luggage, scarfs, jewellery, books, games, homewares, furniture (including a lovely art deco wardrobe for $130 and 5 seater, reclining lounge suite for $300), VHS, vinyl records,PS2 games, stereos and even golf balls can be found in this large and unassuming op-shop. Like most not-for-profit agencies, donations are gratefully accepted, however it’s best to drop off items during opening hours as there are no donation bins located on site.
As is the case with most opportunity shops you may need to work a little harder of find vintage gold in this store, but it’s definitely there if you are willing to dig. If you are in the market for some secondhand furniture I would definitely recommended popping in – you never know what you might find.
