The online shop is easy enough to find from the Salvos main page. A poke around shows that several of their stores are putting their better bits and designer clothing up online.
I suppose this means that those items will be available to a wider audience and Salvos can then charge a higher price for them. This can be a good thing as I can now check for my china patten in all participating Salvos stores. The down side is I doubt they will have my teapot for $7 again.
The Salvos Stores are a business, and while we may regret paying a higher prices, this may be a fact of things in the future.
