‘Op shop’ or, opportunity shop is a great place to find a bargain, a treasure, or just that something a little different, and provide much needed funds for charities. Over the years I have donated countless items to many op shops around town, and have shopped in many as well.
One new op shop I discovered recently was right under my nose in Woden! The Red Cross’ only Canberra op shop has been open for nearly 6 months but I was totally unaware. You see, it is tucked on the outside of Westfield Woden, just near the bus interchange. The renovations going at the interchange mean this shop is a little off the main path, but is well worth a visit.
The store is very well laid out, with racks and racks of colour coordinated clothing, lots of handbags (some brand new), oodles of jewellery pieces, kitchenware and a kids corner filled with lots and lots of books and games.
Come, check them out!
