Plenty of Bargain Buys at Salvos

Who will buy these beautiful bargain bags?


Hands up if you're a handbag fan! Keep them up if you think maybe you spend a little too much money on your handbag collection. Well I have good news for the people with their hands in the air right now. Salvos Hope Op Shop in West End has some of the prettiest handbags you'll ever see in great condition for very low prices. Here are six of the best that I found on my recent trip to the store...

6. Black beauty.


Great for a night out on the town, this sparkly satin clutch is embroidered, sequined gorgeousness. It's small enough to be elegant and classy and large enough to fit the essentials with ease. How could you not love that beautiful beaded handle? The pops of colour make it a versatile choice and at only eight dollars you can't really have buyer's regret.

5. International rescue.


Great size for the girl guides out there who always like to be prepared, this bag could fit in everything but the kitchen sink. It looks brand new and unused. It's colourful without being gaudy and the materials are sturdy. There's a fun print that suggests you're a cosmopolitan world traveler. At Salvos prices you can buy this one without blowing the savings for your next overseas trip.

4. Purple reign.


Seriously become Queen of Handbagdom with this royal purple fantasy. Ruby and sapphire jewel tones support the swirling stunning plumb embroidery. Medium size means it's practical as well as pretty, and again, this bag looks brand new, but it has that all too alluring second hand price tag.

3. Petal power.


Yes this is the same design as 'Purple reign' but with different embroidery. A rainbow of petals, stunning gold on black, and pretty little pom poms adorn this bag. This medium sized over the shoulder number is another that looks as good as new. The colour scheme makes it versatile and fun too.

2. Just bead it.


How much retro goodness can you handle? If you answered, "All of it" you'll dig this groovy 70s style brown wooden bead bag. It's on the smaller size for those times you're only packing your lippy, eftpos card, keys and a mobile phone. The wood means it's going to go with a lot of different clothing styles and colours.

1. Pretty in pink.


Squeal with delight Elle Woods wannabes. This cutie pie of a pink satin baguette shines with beautiful bead work and sparkly sequins. The snap lock closure keeps all your possessions safe and sound for a night out on the town. Keep it tidy though as it's in great condition now, but a boozy bender would be enough to tarnish its good looks forever.

Salvos Hope Op Shop has only recently opened its doors on Anthony St in West End. You may find these lovely bags have been snapped up by the time you visit the store, but you're always going to find some high quality, good bargain second hand items there. The friendly volunteer staff will even pack up your purchases in a complimentary plastic bag should you happen to visit the store.
