This is the cutest little Op Shop in East Geelong and if you’re heading to Ocean Grove, you’ll miss it on the way down but you’ll see it on the way back.
Located in a side street, the store is nicely arranged with stock that is clean and useable. The staff are just delightful and very helpful.
The kids section is great for browsing through toys and books, CD’s, DVD’s, VCR tapes and stuffed toys.
The fashion is pretty good and the prices are reasonable and again very clean and well presented. There isn’t alot to write about this Op Shop but I did enjoy visiting and scrounging through various parts of the store. It’s well worth a visit.
