To be quite honest I am a bit of snob when it comes to shopping at op-shops or second hand clothing stores. My family are always trying to sell me the idea about how great it is but whenever I try to sort through the op-shops the clothes seem to be a bit old school for me and I come home with nothing having just wasted my time and feeling frustrated.
Luckily I gave it one more try because I managed to get some real bargains at the fill a bag sale for only $5 at Yesterday's Thrift Shop . On the last Sunday of every month, Yesterday's Thrift Shop open their doors to pass on the donations they receive to benefit the local community. I am so glad I didn't give up. I was quite surprised to find some amazing clothes and presents for my nephew. Check out the clothes and blankets in the photo below, between mum and I we managed to get two blankets, several outfits including a swimming top and winter clothes all for one little boy.
On sunny days Yesterday's Thrift Shop has an outside section where you will be greeted by the friendly staff and you can sort through the clothes until your heart's content. They also have a room inside the shop that you can fill your bag to the brim for only $5, most op-shops these days are making so much money on the clothes that are donated by the public and fair enough they do a lot for the community with the proceeds but if you can't afford to spend a lot on clothes I suggest you come and check out the bargains at Yesterday's Thrift Shop, you won't be disappointed.
Yesterday's Thrift Shop friendly staff and great location.
