Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Known to the locals as “the dove” this popular Op Shop is located centrally within Ocean Grove, only a short walk from the main street.

Stocked with high quality secondhand clothing, jewellery, glassware, cushions, cutlery, kids toys, bric-a-brac and so much more.

This Church is committed to donating the profits to support other organisations and support Uniting Care Geelong.
