Smith Family Shop- op shop review

I finally found an American-style op shop in the inner west. It looks like they rotate the oldest things to be half price, and there's a $2 rack. Things still aren't by size (WTF Australia?) but at least there's a fat girl rack so I don't have to scavenge through a million size sixes.

I ended up getting 4 men's t-shirts for $9.50, so there will be new underpants in my future.

  1. It looks as if other people have the same issue as me. The prices in my local Salvos and Vinnies are just to high! I am sure they would sell a lot more and have more space if they just got rid of things cheaper. I do not know who you feel but if I buy something and I have to fix it to make it wearable I am just not prepared to pay "big bucks"

    1. I definitely agree, and I'm also a bit spoiled by the cheap clothing in America. I'm happy to drop a tenner on a dress that I can wear now, but some 80's monstrosity? Forget about it.
