The Op Shop Girl
“Op shops are my happy place, my home away from home!” – The Op Shop Girl
Hi there, I’m Melissa also known as ‘The Op Shop Girl’ on YouTube and I am so addicted to op shopping that I create three videos a week on my YouTube channel.
I film op shopping vlogs, upcycling videos and also op shop hauls where I show you all the amazing thrifted treasures I find at my local op shops. I love op shopping as I prefer to give clothing and homewares a second life and reuse, I don’t like to look like everyone else in what i’m wearing, so op shopping helps me to create unique outfits at a bargain price and I actually prefer second hand and vintage over brand new and have been an avid op shopper since I was about 5 years old.
I love knowing that things I buy at the op shops such as fashion, homewares and furniture all have a history. To me it’s comforting and somewhat magical. Op shopping makes me so very happy, I can’t get enough of it, it relax’s me and makes me feel good and I love sharing my op shopping adventures with other people to hopefully inspire them to try op shopping too.
Today I thought I would share with you one of my op shop hauls from the recent National Op Shop Week 2018 celebrations we had here in Australia. I filmed 6 op shopping videos during National Op Shop Week. Hope you enjoy this video where we head out to the 50% Salvos sale and be sure to leave a comment saying hello or just a line about why you love op shopping too.
