Bargains out north


If you're on the hunt for a special secondhand goods place in the northern suburbs, head to 379 Prospect Rd for a sweet little op-shop gem. Easy to locate with ample street parking, but also right next to an IGA, this op-shop has rock-bottom prices and a welcoming atmosphere. It's the kind of place where customers are known by name and their stories are shared.

Brimming with volunteers, the little building converts from a funky, mural-covered church on the weekends to a sorting room and adjacent op-shop during the week. They sell everything from towels and linens, to home bric-a-brac and kid's clothing and toys.

As an institution that exists to provide quality preloved goods to the local community, the prices are incredibly low - even for BNWT (brand new with tags) and name brand items. While there, I spied a BNWT Zara top on a hanger for a tiny $1, accompanied by a collection of Cotton:On pieces for the same price, also with their tags still attached! Even though these weren't the right size, I was excited to find a BNWT Tokito top that has an RRP of $59 for only $1!



As a customer purchasing from this particular op-shop, you can tell that you are making a difference in just that local community.
I was lucky to meet and chat with a couple of the volunteers who manage the shop each week and by keeping the prices low like this, they are able to offer everything to everyone.

My 2-year-old also had a ball rummaging through the toy section and she didn't leave empty-handed either!





For 10 items, we paid $6 which was well and truly worth the trek out north for bargains like that! It was great to pay simple second-hand prices for simple second-hand pieces and to support a local shop like this one was an added bonus. So if you're out north or headed in that direction, stop in at the Blair Athol Church of Christ Op-Shop and grab a new-to-you treasure.

The shop is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am until 4pm and on Tuesdays from 10am until 4pm.
