Op Shop


Op Shop - That's what we call thrift stores here in Australia.
Short for opportunity shop.
This one is down the road at Beaufort.

  1. I can buy more single items in a store kitted out like this than I ever can in Myer or DJs.

    Very period in the b&w garb ...

  2. I don't like op shops at all but I really like this photograph. You have managed to make op shop clutter look desirable!!

  4. Joan Elizabeth - You don't like op shops!!!!!!!!
    What??????
    And all those little country towns you visit - imagine the treasures their op shops would hold!
    (that's if they have op shops - although it's surprising - I see them pop up in the most unlikely places).

  5. Ok, I missed this fab shop last time I was up at the family farm so I'll have to get up there again soon just to check out the goodies ;)
    Love the B&W, very effective!

  7. Lovely sized tapestry. I like to think of the person who put all that effort and creativity into that only to have it pop up in an op-shop. But at least it can be admired by others.

    You have given me an idea for my Mudgee trip ... let me see ... abandoned houses (but Joan loves them too) ... tractors ... and op shops ....

  8. Well I like country antique shops but not op shops ... something to do the musty smell of old clothes.

  9. But antiques and hidden treasures surface in op shops, particularly country op shops ;)
