Let's face it: fashion is responsible for a huge amount of our environmental footprint but buying second-hand means you can cut your carbon footprint and still look good. If you're a beginner getting started on your op-shop journey or you're one of those rare (but wise) souls who like your op-shops to be as neat as a pin, the Red Cross Op Shop in Woden will warm your heart.

A sparkling, tidy space and planned layout make this more akin to a regular store than an op-shop with racks neatly organised by colour, size and item type. The majority of clothes here are good quality and you'll find plenty of big brands and 'new-with-tags' clothes. There is a dedicated rack of vintage, a staff picks rack and dedicated areas for plus-size, evening wear and kidswear. There's a small selection of men's wear too but the majority of clothing on offer here is for the ladies.

Almost all of the goodies for sale at the Red Cross in Woden are clothes but they have a few shelves of books, the occasional handful of toys and often candles or other knick-knacks but no large items or furniture.

If you love the thrill of the chase for op-shop treasure among cluttered shelves, Red Cross, Woden probably isn't for you. And if you love picking up a big name brand for $1, you'll be disappointed too - the staff here know the good stuff and price it at the high-end of op-shop pricing scale. On the flip side, if you want good quality in an organised setting, this is the op shop for you!

The Red Cross Op Shop also has a frequent shopper rewards card, regular special deals like buy two get the third free and the most helpful staff you'll ever find so if you are itching for a sustainable new look, get shopping!
