Where are they?

One of the most frequent questions asked in the I Love To Op Shop Facebook group is where op shops are.

I’ve begun to compile some simple maps to help you not only find the op shops but also the vintage, secondhand and antique shops.

I’m hoping this map will help you out a little.

It needs work though so if you have a few minutes please look up your local area and let me know what I’ve missed.

It’s by no means finished but I hope it will be a useful tool for locals and visitors.

Help me keep it up to date.

Please help me fill in the blanks by adding a comment below.

Please also let other shoppers know of any spots worth visiting.

For extra op shop points don’t forget to do a quick closet check for some great quality donations to pass on too!.

Thanks so much and happy opping!

Vicky!

Vinnies VIP Club Cards Launched

Vinnies VIP Club Cards Launched

Vinnies VIP Club Cards are here!

I’m really excited by this as my local op shop happens to be a gorgeous Vinnies store.  Every time I spend I can now have my card scanned and accumulate points.

I know there are a few other VIPOS (very important op shoppers) who will love this too!

To be fair all op shoppers are very important though – we’re changing the world with our secondhand choices.

 

What is a Vinnies VIP Club Card?

Well according to Vinnies

This is how it works. You earn 1 point for every $1 you spend and when you reach 200 points you’ll receive a $10 voucher – how great is that?

How do I get a Vinnies VIP Club Card?

You just sign up in-store next time you’re shopping.

Are these available all over Australia?

No these particulare VIP Club Cards are for Victorian shops only.  If I find out about any changes I’ll certainly update this though.

 

Don’t forget to follow Vinnies Victoria on their Facebook page here for more news and info on their stores.

Happy hunting treasure seekers and world changers!
