If you're looking for that unique vintage find or running low on cash, op shopping is the best way to revamp your wardrobe. Make a day out of it and you will see how much money you can save by buying recycled clothing. I have visited numerous op shops and found fantastic bargains on clothing, shoes, books, and homeware. Some of the products have even been brand new. There are lots of different op shops throughout the southern suburbs; you just have to know where to look. Here are the best op shops to visit in SA's southern suburbs:
Bonza Brats 228 Old South Rd, Old Reynella SA 5161
This is probably my favourite op shop. Every time I visit this store I purchase something. The store is separated into two parts, one specifically for babies and young children that contains babies and toddlers clothing, toys, prams, and cots (basically a huge range of recycled child related products), whilst the other side of the store is for older children and adults. The store is so jam packed full of clothing every customer should be able to find something to suit them.
St Vinnies Morphett Vale Vinnies Morphett Vale, 190 Main South Rd, Morphett Vale SA 5162
The highlight of this shop is its extremely cheap prices. When I visited the store they had all summer clothing on sale for just $2!
Salvos Darlington Darlington Salvos, 1507 Main South Road, Darlington SA 5047
A fantastic store for finding costumes for dress up parties. This store is always full of wacky shirts, wedding dresses, and huge fur coats. Another great plus to Salvos stores is that they have weekly sales and some customers can use concession, or health care cards for discounts.
This is another very large op shop which sells a lot of furniture in the back of the store, and sells a massive selection of women's clothing.
Hallett Cove Animal Welfare League Thrift Shop Shop 35A at Hallett Cove Shopping Centre
This store contains both recycled clothing and brand new items. They also sell some pet products.
All of these stores are fantastic for grabbing a bargain so head out for a day of op shopping where you can not only save yourself money, but also feel good knowing your money is going to some great causes.
