Goulburn Op-Shops - Smith Family

The shop is in its own building in Ellesmere Street wich is behind and parallell to the main street (Auburn Street). There's plenty of free parking in Ellesmere street and we recommend parking there, doing the Smith Family and walking through the Reject Shop or the pub to Auburn Street for its delights.

Oh, the Smith Family, how I have missed you.

Lots of clothes, men's, women's and children's. Our visit also coincided with a delivery of ski gear, which was well priced $8-$25 for suits, pants and jackets.

Clothes prices were similar to those in Vinnies and Salvos in Canberra but regularly reduced. I bought jeans originally marked at $8 for $4, for example. Reductions are based on time in store. At the front of the store was a 50c rack. A lined leather skirt and a lined suede dress came home to be transformed into bags (eventually).

Shoes were a little pricey for the condition at about $10 a pair.

Reasonable craft section. 50g balls of wool $1 a ball, knitting needles and crochet hooks $1.

Well organised but crowded and busy and the staff were pretty flustered the day we were there.
