Coffee and a promise you won't walk away without a bargain
If you have always been a little unsure about op shops and second hand goods then read on as I have found one of the best op shops in Brisbane. Vinnie's on Jijaws Street, Sumner Park is a hidden gem that will delight and surprise you. From the moment you park your car in the off street parking and order your coffee from the coffee cart you will not be able to walk away empty handed. Oh yes, you read correctly, there is a coffee cart supporting the Monte Lupo Arts program.

This op shop doesn't offer anything particularly different to other stores but it is the presentation and the friendly atmosphere that will win you over. You won't see chipped crockery and bric-a-brac randomly piled on dusty shelves in this store. The glassware collection is colour coded and holds some classy, cute and quirky pieces.

There are racks of clothes enticing you to try them on, including a row of formal dresses.

There is a kids section, furniture and a shoe and handbag section that you cannot go past. After all, a girl can never have too many shoes or handbags, or sunglasses, or clothes...

This store gets the bonus points for the care and love put into the presentation. Every area was clean, tidy and showed off the wares to their full potential.

So, never fear, you op shop doubters. There are no musty smells and dodgy hand me downs here. Take a look and I bet you will walk out with a bargain.

Sue, I have scored some great bargains from this Vinnies over the years but I've never seen the coffee cart. Time to go there again I think...
