Vinnies Gungahlin closing

St Vincent de Paul shop on Hibberson Street, Gungahlin is closing at 5pm on Saturday 24 November.

There is a closing down sale - all the second hand goods are now half price.

We are told that the rent went up and the shop is no longer viable.  Shame, really, because Gunghalin will now be without an op shop.

Hipsley Lane

So has anyone been to Hipsley Lane, Lifeline's vintage shop in Braddon?

I've read some press but it isn't open the day I do most of my op-shopping.  Would love to hear a report from our community.

Sale at another chance

Another Chance at Scullen is have a 50% off all clothing sales until the 30th of November.

Considering they are one of the best value op-shops in Canberra, 50% their clothing off is an even better saving.

Hats off to the Shoalhaven shire.

With summer approaching, some of our regular readers will be heading down the coast for the summer holidays.

A couple of years ago, Taph and i found a copy of the Shoalhaven guide to op shops, but until we could find an online version, we didn't post about it.

We, it is now online and can at the site or at the link below.

If only other shires could get this organised, it would make our searches for op shops so much simpler.

Mission Australia – Goulburn

On a recent visit to Goulburn, Taph and I found another new op shop. 

We cannot say much about it apart from its there, as it is not open on weekends, and we are unable to get there on weekdays. 

If you are in Goulburn, pay it a visit and write a review for us.
