It's my local op shop and so I pop in every so often.

Her name is Che and she was a stay at home mum but the kids are older now and she is volunteering and enjoying being back in the swing of things. She has brought small but noticeable changes to the set up of items for sale, which makes them eye catching and interesting.

The Salvos is perfect for a lazy morning when the weather is cooling and you have that time to indulge a little in what I call Affordable Me Time. So check it out and see what grabs your fancy. At the same time, clear out your cupboards and take your unwanted items along to them. They might just be someone else's treasures.There is plenty of parking and there are buses that take you to Waterworks road which is just round the corner from Glenrosa.
There is a substantial and underlying good cause to this Op shop which justifies most of the affordable goodies brilliantly.
