I walk around Adelaide with a camera and a tripod.

Find a Goodie Here
Goodies Op Shop is run by Clayton-Wesley Uniting Church and is situated on the Corner of the Parade and Portrush Road in Beulah Park. Turning left at the sign on The Parade behind the church leads to a small grassy area and warehouse. Opposite the warehouse is the shop.

The Entrance to Goodies Op Shop
While the entrance is more grand than most thrift shops, upon entering shoppers are met with a familiar sight. Shelves of video cassettes, DVDs and jigsaw puzzles line the closest wall, with most of the space taken up by racks of clothing.
Next to a water dispenser are shelves of second hand books (with a particularly large number of cookbooks) and cheap shoes. In the centre of the display floor is a collection of glassware, jars and crockery.
Glassware at Goodies Op Shop
Prices are very cheap with all profits going to outreach programs. I've found a few interesting pieces of pottery there, all for under five dollars.
Jigsaw Puzzles and Board Games
If you're in Norwood and looking to rummage through some second hand goods at a decent price, the Goodies Op Shop is definitely worth a visit.
