Weekend thrifters go to guide
It is a question I get asked a lot.

Many of us, for lots of reasons, find Sundays are ideal for a trip out to the op shops - but where can we go? I'm hoping this list will help a few of you out.

The fantastic Sacred Heart Stores are open 7 days a week and quite a few Vinnies stores are now offering Sunday hours. You can also rely on Savers, which are open 7 days with some late night hours too. Although, not an op shop, I rate them as a store that promotes recycling.

A good list Vicky. As you say most are not open on Sundays but it is the ideal day for op shopping as there is plenty of time for detailed browsing.

Do any of these op shops have furniture? Looking for secondhand furniture
stores which are open Sundays. Or even anytime! Preferably in the west.

Liked your list of op shops. Handy to know.

Not quite your traditional op shop but the Brotherhood have an online second-hand bookshop called Brotherhood Books and it's fantastic! I ordered book at 10:30 Sunday night and they were at my place before 5pm Monday.

Hi Vicky, New recycled shop for Women Only opened only a few months ago in the Queen Victoria Hospital facing the Queen Victoria Square. It has designer, vintage and recycled clothes, some new. It is open Tuesday to Saturday 12-5 and all proceeds go to Fitted for Work. A not for profit organisation that assists women find work - for disadvantaged, long term unemployed. A brilliant organisation and the clothes are amazing. A hidden gem with amazing clothes and fantastic prices. Word is getting around slowly.
(I work there as a volunteer, as as the majority of the staff)
