The Treasure Corner Op-Shop in Mt. Evelyn is typical of today's op-shops. On entering you could be forgiven that you thought you had entered a clothing and a gift shop. Quality merchandise everywhere.
The main feature of op-shops is clothing, and the Treasure Corner has an abundance of such merchandise.
Two racks of clothing.
Three racks of clothing.
More racks, more clothing.
If you are looking for a particular type of clothing, just look up, as signs indicate where you will find them. There are jackets, coats, girls' wear, boys' wear, formal wear, baby and toddler wear, school uniforms, costumes, jeans and even mum-to-be clothing.
Follow the signs.
Two large bookshelves display 100s of books which would cater for all literary tastes. I think I saw a cabinet of CDs for those whose interests are musical.
The library department.
There are many shelves of knick-knacks that would interest collectors. Op-shops would be collectors' paradise for those who collect odd things. Over the years I have met people who collect green glass objects, and anything resembling a pig. Collecting souvenir spoons seem to have gone out of fashion.
Pick a nic-nac.
A nice display of glassware was displayed. No green items, so I guess a collector had been there. Also displayed was chinaware. Part of the chinaware display was six large soup cups with soup recipes on them. You had the choice of chicken, onion or mushroom, although I did think that having the recipe on the cup from which you drank from was putting the cart before the horse.
Glass ware and china ware.
Mugs for soup.
The head is not forgotten with a small range of hats, scarves and a panel of jewellery, including many necklaces.
Hats and scarves.
More items for the neck and head.
Your other end is not forgotten with several racks of shoes.
Especially for the feet.
Treasure Corner is open six days a week with opening hours displayed in the window.
When to come.
It is a double shop on the corner of a laneway, hence the name.
Treasure Corner corner.
You can be fitted out, head to toe, complement your library of books and CDs and any collecting foibles you may have.
