After some recent interest in my op shopping (both finds and stores), I’m starting a small series about the op shops I frequent. I’ll most likely share finds in separate posts, because it is second hand shopping, which means you can find amazing stuff one week and then nothing you like for weeks after that.
Vinnies Brisbane CBD Op Shop
I love that there is an op shop in the CBD. I can walk to it in my lunch break if I want to shop but don’t want to go to chain stores. Obviously as it’s in the CBD it is a small store, and as such it focuses on fashion (clothes, shoes, accessories) with some homewears, books and DVDs.
It is obviously an op shop of impeccable taste when they are selling Stargate DVDs. Stargate FTW.
You can even go wedding dress shopping here. They also have some formalwear/dressey-but-not-wedding clothes. Can you tell that’s a section I don’t go to? I mean, I don’t even know what to call it…
City workers/dwellers who want something small and fashioney and non chain shoppey at a great price.
73 Mary Street, Brisbane.
Check opening hours and other details on the St Vincent de Paul website here.
As this is a store in a CBD, there is no parking. Usual city street or car parks are your best bet.
