Taking you in and around Brisbane (and sometimes beyond)
Published November 3rd 2014
With Asthma running in our family blood, it's only natural that I try to support the Asthma Foundation Op Shop. Located in Annerley, Hillcrest, Mitchelton, Zillmere - Annerley is my store of choice.
Like all charity store shopping, the money you spend goes to a great cause. In this case, your purchases help fund world-leading asthma research. So, you could say, your shopping helps to fight asthma. Seriously!
This op shop is mainly clothing, but there is a range of items to purchase including shoes, accessories, books, bric-a-brac, home wares, toys and more.
They often have lots of bedding - cushions, sheets etc. Sometimes, they even have some beautiful new linen and bed covers for sale.
I have seen some amazing furniture here - but it goes quickly.
Staff are lovely - and recently took the time out to show my 8 year old the different 'jewels' she was looking at. She let her try them on to see the pros and cons of each. A nice moment for a $1 item.
I must warn you, sometimes their prices would class them as a 'more expensive' op shop. But there are still great bargains to be had. And, remember, it's all going towards a great cause.
Like all op shops, they to have sales. At the moment there is a shoe side walk sale. Maybe your Cinderella slipper is waiting for you?
They even have a loyalty program today! For every five stamps marked off on your Loyalty Card you will receive a whopping 50% off your next purchase of clothing. This, my friends is recycling at it's best!
And, if you feel passionate about this cause - maybe you can look at the other ways you can help.
