This particular Op shop (st. vinnies) ticks the boxes for me because:
- the staff are delightful
- the prices are the prices things should be in a thrift shop
- they regularly have vintage sheets, tea towels, doilies etc (which a lovely volunteer often seems to be 'tidying' up. So cute and always in for a chat)
On a recent (very, very rare) trip to Melbourne, my Husband and I were walking to Brunswick street and en route there were some handmade shops and markets. Below is a photo of a shop which stocked pretty much upcycled handmade items. Some great ideas in there.
