Take the opportunity
The Burnt Bridge Shopping Centre is on Maroondah Highway, on the corner of Beaufort Road.

Looking down one of the long aisles.

Vinnies is shop 10. It's a normal shop width but has great depth, both in distance and variety of merchandise.

They will greet you.

More merchandise.

All the usual op shop items are available, with clothing being the predominant items.

All sections are clearly labelled and my casual perusal showed the prices were extremely low.

The colourful section.

Once you have selected your new outfit, and they all do look new, head to the shoe racks to match a pair with you newly acquired attire.

For the feet.

Don't forget your head. The hat range is small, but they may have just want you are looking for. There is a larger choice with the handbag and purse range.

Almost one wall is dedicated to crockery and glass ware. Ranging from individual items to a complete dinner set.

Crockery & glassware.

If you are organising a dinner party, you could pick up some unique items here to give your guests a meal with a difference, certainly a different look.

There is a small section of items for children but nothing is cuter than the three little bears, perhaps waiting for a goldilocks to take them home.

The back wall is the book section, not huge, but several hundred books are just waiting to be read. Op shop books are so inexpensive it matters not if you don't like them as your outlay has been so small. Read them and donate them back. Recycling at its best.

The library.

The success of any opportunity shop is dependent on volunteers and Vinnies will always welcome volunteers over the age of 15 years. What a wonderful opportunity for teenagers to volunteer to work in an op shop to give them some real-life experience.

Any op shop is worth a visit and Vinnies at Burnt Bridge is no exception.
