  2. There is a new second hand shop opened up called K&S Preloved shop 6/136 Queen st St Marys behind supersaver with a huge range of plus sizes for ladies also carry a range of men and kids, huge range of brands they are always doing specials like buy 3 items and get the 4th item free, buy 1 item get the 2nd item half price. They have Billabong, Ripcurl, G star, Country Road, Liz Jordon, Espirt, Colorado, Noni B heaps more

  3. If you are looking for designer and vintage clothes for bargain prices you can’t beat a little secondhand shop in Bligh Park called The Secret Closet. It is run out of a back garage, most things are on hangers so it’s easy to browse and if you buy in bulk (over 10kg I think) it is an awesome $5 a kilo! if you can only find a few things it’s only like $7 or $8 a kilo. I found some great little nick nacks too, jewellery and toys for the kids, all near new and only like $2 or $3!! I spent a total of $70 and left with 3 garbage bags full!! Totally worth the trip!

  4. I use to go to the red cross at Turramurra it use to be great with prices and stock now its gone down hll.since jan this year all the girls are gone they should bring then back.

  5. Oh and theres quite a good little store behind Woollies in Picton, went for a day out and lunch and stumbled apon some bargains in there

  6. Best shop down south is in Oak Flats (OF), there is also a Vinnies but I have to agree with others they are all charging way to much, I think the shop on OF main street, Cental Ave is called southern clothing Co, they always have $2 specials and huge range. Salvos also imo putting too high price now. Theres a little store in middle Wollongong not sure where but north of the huge Salvos shop has car park near it and it has amazing deals and lots new stuff, I got new sportsgirl cape valued 70bux for 10bux, I got a 300 dollar evening gown for 3 bux at the OF shop, oh and a jumpsuit I was going to buy in a boutique last year for 85 bux I picked up in Warilla Salvos for 8bux, new never worn.

  7. Def Sammy & Sid on Pittwater road in Manly
    Few mins walk out of town but Definately worth a look in if you are over that side of the bridge
    Some true vintage classics mixed with some coool designer labels

  8. St.Vinnies & salvos are awesome,you just gotta know which places to avoid,lets just say nowhere near the city & surrounding suburbs,u gotta go west & south.A lot of my prized possessions in my wardrobe have come from Salvos & Anglicare op shops,esp. Blazers & collared shirts.just find a good tailor ;)

  9. Avoid vinnie’s – suddenly they think they are antique shops. Salvos best for great buys at reasonable charity shop prices

  10. Some of my fave finds have been just outside #Sydney driving up to the Great Western Hwy to the Blue Mountains. The best finds I’ve came across have been in Mrs Peel in Leura, reasonable prices for vintage goodies.
    It’s a bit of a hit and miss at op shops, sometimes there are gems, other times not much for a long time.

  11. Problem with op shops in Sydney is that they starting to get too expensive. Vinnines is like a high fashion boutique these days….
