Shop for something old and something new all in the same trip to Morley, where large-scale op shops surround a shopping centre.

There are four op shops near the Centro Galleria Shopping Centre, raising the odds that you will find what you need cheaply.

However, if you don't, then the centre provides back-up in the form of shops including Myer, Target and more than 200 specialty outlets.

Centro Galleria


The pick of the op shop bunch is Anglicare at 129 Russell St, which has funky, young staff and a great range of evening wear.

Anglicare


A Jane Lamberton black lace dress for $5 caught my eye - being about $145 cheaper than it would have been new but was not my size.

Instead I bought some scarves at $1 a pop and a retro shopping bag for $2.

Next stop was Vinnies at 10 Dewar St, where I picked up a Stitches brand shirt for $6 and a T-shirt for the price of a coffee.

Bargain Stitches Top


Vinnies was clean, well organised, and lacking that distinctive op shop smell.

The Baptcare Bargain Centre at 8 Dewar St is more of a traditional op shop with a large range of bric-a-brac as well as clothes including $5 jeans.

Delightful Denim


Slightly further away from the shopping centre you can find a Salvos outlet at 156 Russell St, where I was tempted by a different Stitches top at $6.99 and $30 leather jacket.

I bought two vintage tea towels there for $1.99 which I later re-sold on ebay for $10 each covering some of the cost of my shopping.

Your Comment
I know you didn't mean it to sound bad but buying at a charity op shop and writing about making a profit on e-bay later does seem more than a touch mercenary. Please think about that aspect a little as even in Weekend Notes there are articles from others about the many homeless and needs of the poor in our fair city. Not trying to offend you so please take this comment in the spirit I meant it in, which was thoughtfully.

I noticed that you have a section on Baptistcare opp shop in Morley, it is spelt wrong, it is spelt Baptcare. This opp shop is clean and has cheap prices on everything, it would be nice to have the right spelling for this shop.
