A Raid on the NSW Op-shops.

This weekend we have a funny thing happen. In Canberra we get the Monday off as a public holiday, but for NSW it’s another normal working day.

For Taph and me this means a chance to raid the ops-shops of NSW on a normal working day. The question is where we will go.
We can go South and do Queanbeyan, Cooma, Nimmitabel, and then track back to Adaminaby?
We can go North and do Goulburn, Moss Vale, Bowral and Mittagong?

We were saving Yass, Harden, Young and Boorowa for later in the year. ideally that would be during the cherry season.
With so many options what should we do?
Also we need your help. If you know of any little shops in or near these towns that have not been reviewed here, then let us know.

Or head to the coast? Bega, Merimbula and Pambula.

Hi! Love your blog, been lurking for ages... :)

Up in the Highlands there are some great opshops, but they have been discovered... there is a huge retro market in Bowral now - dirty janes (excellent btw) so less gems to be found in the opshops.

Boorowa trip sounds fantastic!

There is a terrific tip shop in Nowra, as well as a great big opshop on the south... oh! and the tip shop in Moss Vale is pretty good if you are coming this way.

If you are coming the highlands way, I'd be happy to send you the list of opshops locally.

Hi Summer pickles.
Taph and I detoured and found your tip shop on a recent trip to Sydney.
It is very impressive.
