The Op Shop could not exist without donations.

Generous donors provide us with their no longer needed items for sale in the shop.

We are keen to expand our donor base so please look at your wardrobe and cupboards and ask yourself whether it’s time to move some of the contents to new homes.

You can also make a financial donation – or leave us a legacy in your will.

Financial donations

We gratefully accept donations of goods in saleable condition during shop opening hours. (Monday – Saturday 10am-5pm).

If you have a large item such as furniture contact us to arrange pick up. Please note we cannot accept broken or damaged items. Electrical items in good working order are welcome and are sold with appropriate tagging “not checked by an electrician”.

Call into the Shop at 200 Bank Street South Melbourne, just off Clarendon Street. Street parking in the area is mainly metered, but there is a small laneway adjacent to the shop where it may be possible to quickly drop off goods. There is access by public transport, the Clarendon Street tram (route 12) and the Park Street tram (route 1).
