Faux fur, genuine bargain (by Salvos)


Op Shops are suburban heaven for the nostalgic bargain hunter. Find discount treasure amongst the donated, pre-loved homewares, art, books, DVDs, clothes and priceless heirlooms at these top op shops in Sydney:


Salvos
The Salvation Army has stores across Sydney, with Darlinghurst, Glebe in the city, Bondi Junction to the east. Further afield, find stores at Marrickville, St Peters, Croydon, Balgowlah, Brookvale and Rockdale. Out west, try Lidcombe, North Parramatta, Chester Hill, Yagoona and Fairfield.

You'll find clothing, footwear and accessories, bric-a-brac and homewares, furniture, electrical goods, toys, books, CDs and DVDs. The nostalgia buff can grab vinyl records and in the bigger stores, you can pick up white goods.

Find out more at Salvos.

Feel-good fashion (by Vinnies)


Vinnies
Vinnies shops have been a treasure trove for fashionistas looking for stylish outfits for a night out or a job interview. The process isn't a secret, with their social media busy with selfies from happy customers. They even host styling sessions to help you find an outfit to wow your friends and colleagues.

Vinnies has long aisles of clothing, accessories, toys, books, bric-a-brac (assorted small, sentimental items), DVDs and games, sporting goods and the occasional electrical gadget and piece of furniture.

Stylish without the $ting. (by Salvos)


The Bower
The bower bird is a hoarder, snatching trash and treasure to furnish its nest, the DIY expert of the avian world.

The Bower in Parramatta rescues pre-loved items, from appliances, books, and furniture to accessories, bicycles and building supplies.

As you search for bargains, you can join workshops in Parramatta and Redfern to reupholster and restore timber furniture and create mosaic artworks.

At their Green Square site, you can tinker with your electrical gadgets, saving devices from digital landfill.

In late 2018, The Bower was locked out of their HQ in Marrickville and scheduled for eviction. As of November 2018, the team and the local community are fighting to protect this vital service to reduce our waste. Please consider supporting them by signing the petition.

Ram home the discounts (by Reverse Garbage)


Reverse Garbage
For over 40 years, this award-winning co-operative in Marrickville has become Australia's largest creative reuse centre.

It houses a giant range of reno and DIY items, haberdashery, home and office furniture, decorative porcelain and glass object-da, and end-of-season designer items.

For your next fancy dress party, look for the film props, costumes, wigs and jewellery used to create some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters.

Vinnies at Parramatta. The best loved (and well used) item I have bought from op. shops is a champagne cork remover.

Balmain Vinnies has great clothes and shoes, etc. Plus UTurn Recycled fashion is just across the road from it (Balmain Rd, Rozelle), Cross the intersection of Darling St and Victoria Rd and you can check out the Red Cross shop (great clothes).
On other side of Darling St, right on the corner is a funny little thrift shop selling some retro but mainly secondhand clothes. Then there are the Rozelle markets (which operate Sat and Sun).
And next to the markets/Rozelle school is Forever Vintage selling exquisite vintage garments
