I'm a freelance writer just returned to Tassie from 8 years on the mainland. I've been writing honestly about personal experiences since school and now I'm sharing my experiences, opinions, passions and wicked sense of humour with the world.

Find pre-loved treasures
With new shops opening up all the time, the Hobart CBD has become one of the best places to op shop. Grab a bargain for as a little as 50c! Most things are under $10 but some more of those special brands might be a bit more. I wear fashionable clothes for a really low price such as Surf Brands, Sports Brands, Just Jeans, Jeanswest, Portmans, Dotti, Review, Miss Shop, Lorna Jane, Valley Girl and Luca and Marc. Check out these great Op Shops I found around town...
