I just had to share this great score though that I picked up on my way into Sydney last week. Out of the corner of my eye on the highway I spotted a big blue and red Salvos building. Hastily turning off I just managed to catch the last 20 minutes before they closed and quite politely but firmly asked me to leave. It wasn't nearly enough time, however a lovely crystal bowl set was my prize for only $8.00. The bowls are quite heavy and haven't been used much - they even have gold "Made in West Germany" stickers still attached. I am thinking they will look lovely for serving up some summery fruit salad.
The store is in Canley Heights: 136 Torrens Street CANLEY HEIGHTS NSW 2166. Ph. (02) 9724 0017.
Funnily enough as the guy helped me load my purchases into the car, he saw my number plates and mentioned that there had been a succession of Canberra people that day buying up big in the store!
