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.
