Head on down to the newest bookshop in Fremantle
Save the Children, Perth is about to open their third second-hand bookshop in Fremantle. Books sold at all their outlets are in pristine condition, as they only keep books that are in excellent condition.
One wall of the Mirrabooka shop
* Mirrabooka The largest of their bookshops is at Mirrabooka Square, and they have many categories including the following, to choose from:
Crafts and hobbies
Classic and old books
Mills & Boone
Drop in the say "hi" to the volunteers there and choose some of their many books. Many of these volunteers know a lot about books and are always happy to have a chat.
This shop is situated at the back of the open area next to the Reject Shop, and two down from Aldi. The opening hours are 9.00 am to 3.00 pm seven days a week.
Here you can look around and pick out from this huge range of books which are priced from $2.
* Coventry Village, Morley They also have a second-hand bookshop at Coventry Village, and this shop is near the food hall and opposite Skechers footwear shop.
Large array of books
This shop is open seven days a week from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm and although not quite as large as the Mirrabooka Shop, they have a very good range of books.
* Woolstores, Fremantle The "new kid on the block" opened on 1st March, 2018 and is at the Woolstores, Cantonment Street, Fremantle. This shopping centre also has Coles, Just Jeans, EB Games, Cafe, Japanese sushi shop, massage shop, a couple of op shops raising funds for overseas, a chemist, and a newsagent.
They also have a range of quality second-hand books for you to choose from, and their opening hours are 10.00 am to 3.00 pm.
They are still in need of volunteers, so if you are able to help out and give a committed 3 hours of your time each week, please give Sonia a call on 0410 385839, and mention this article.
All these Save the Children bookshops are staffed entirely by volunteers, so that more funds reach the much-needed area of child relief.
Save The Children work both overseas and in Australia, and they currently have programs in various suburbs in Perth and in the North of Western Australia.
They are always there, when a disaster strikes, no matter where it is as there are vulnerable children needing help. They also help to get children schooled, clothed and fed in the poor nations of the world.
I have set myself the goal of reading all of the winners of the Man Booker Prize. And the Mandurah store (just off the Smart St mall) has been fantastic for picking up the titles I need at reasonable prices.
