Op shop addicts fill me in
We are pretty lucky this side of the Bay when it comes to op shopping, especially in and around Frankston. We have so many op shops from independant op shops to chains of well known stores.

Here's a few worth visiting but I'd love to know which are your favourites. I know some people like larger stores that are well organised and some prefer a good rummage. I'm a big fan of them all, so can never decide.


Carrum Uniting Church is a hidden gem and can be found just next door to Aldi. It's small but normally packed with bargains and so cheap.
12 McLeod Road, Carrum (03) 9772 3767
Opening Hours Monday Friday 10AM 3PM and Saturday 9AM 12PM

Carrum Downs

Salvation Army Thrift Shop
This place always delivers for me and the volunteers are beautiful. It even has a small secure play space for the little ones to have a run around when you're done shopping. It's just by KFC
