If you love true op shop prices, a great selection of secondhand goods and friendly customer service, then you must pop into the Salvation Army Thrift Shop in Cranbourne, located on Camms Road.
I visited this store for the first time in 12 months and was pleasantly surprised to see that they had dropped their prices on all their secondhand goods, which gave the store that true op shop feeling.
They have a great selection of women's, men's and children's clothing all sorted into sizing, which made looking for clothes a lot easier. The women's are grouped from size 8-14 and then size 16 . I found a great jumper there which came down to $2.50 because it was half price. Most of their clothes were under $5 a piece except for the new items with tags and designer brands.
Next, I had a look at the bric-a-brac and toy section. They had a cute assortment of hand knitted plush for as low as $2 each, boardgames and puzzles at $1 and kids books for 20 cents. There was a big cot full of soft toys as well, which were priced from fifty cents.
Other interesting items they had for sale were canvas and framed pictures, glassware, kitchen items, crafts and a few new items thrown into the mix which would make gifts.
Other notable parts of the store were the decent sized book area which had magazines, kids books and adult books and the $2 DVD and computer game shelving.
Overall, I really enjoyed my visit to the Salvation Army Thrift Shop because of the prices, selection and the very welcoming and friendly volunteers who run the store. Each week they also have half price clothing depending on the colour tag of the clothing item. It's always fun to flick through the racks to spot the certain colour half price tag.
