When heading out for a day of shopping, something that is always pleasing is the prospect of a sale and getting whatever you needed or wanted for a bargain price. While you may have to wait for certain shops to have sales, there are places where one can always be sure to save money. Those shops being – of course – Op Shops.

In the Moreton Bay Region, it’s always easy to spot one of the great second-hand stores, seeing that in different towns of the region there are almost always more than one around. Not only can the more known Op Shops such as Lifeline, Salvos or Vinnies be found but certain towns will also have their own one of a kind Op Shops.

The Unique

Renu Fashion is a favourite among the locals of Margate, with children’s clothing being free and no other items over the price of $2 it’s impossible to not catch a bargain. This Op Shop is unique by the fact that although they are not associated with a charity, it is still very charitable. Every cent and dollar made are to help the community and if anyone homeless comes to the shop, they are welcome to take a bag of ten items.

The Mercy Shop found on Bribie Island is another individual store and when purchases are made with this Op Shop, the proceeds go to a number of programs and disaster relief projects.

There’s also the Dakabin Treasure Market and Caboolture Treasure Market. Two Moreton Bay Regional Council markets. The Dakabin location specializes in furniture, gardening accessories, books, CDS and vinyl records while the Caboolture location is known for bikes, furniture and clothes.
