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.

Pop into your local op shops
If you want to avoid the city but still want to take advantage of the Op Shops on offer, then head over to Rosny Park for a squiz. Over there you'll find a similar range of Op Shops that you'd find in town. I love Op Shops because they support our community. Simply by purchasing, donating or volunteering you can help make a difference in this world. You'll find there's plenty of parking! These shops are open weekdays and most of them sometimes on the weekend.
