This is a quaint little shop but does extend back further than the front my appear. It has some little gems inside but you’ll need to hunt for them. There was a book stall out the front and my daughter picked up a great novel for just $1 which is what I believe all books should be priced at – either 50c or $1 because there are so many of them in Op Shops and if they get too many they have to pay to have them sent to the tip.
There is a good selection of glassware and unusual coloured glass as well as jewellery, books, cd’s, dvd’s, craft items and more.
Take the time to explore and rustle through to snap up yourself a bargain.
