The Rotary Club of Mitcham Secondhand Bookshop is something of a magnet for bibliophiles and music lovers on a budget. I used to work nearby, and there was always a constant stream of people heading across the car park to grab a bargain.

The shop stocks a diverse range of books and music (whether it be on vinyl or CD). Surprisingly I didn't see any compact cassettes there though.

Remember vinyl records?

Book prices are typically $3-$5 for those in good condition, while records sell from $1 up. A Gilbert and Sullivan fan would have been very excited when I visited - an entire album set was available for only $5.

The staff are all volunteers and very helpful: I was looking for a copy of Sands & McDougall's Directory of South Australia which unfortunately they didn't have in stock, although the chap behind the counter mentioned proudly that he had four volumes at home. Judging from the look his wife gave him, he may not for much longer.

The Rotary Club of Mitcham use all profits from the shop for charitable causes around the world, so why not pop in and have a browse. Any money you spend will be going to a worthwhile cause.

Lovely shop, better organised and cleaner than many commercial used book shops. Watch for the special weeks with everything half price. Also -try the one at Edwardstown.
