Red Cross Op Shop, Moonee Ponds

Today’s op shop: Red Cross Op Shop, 64 Puckle Street Moonee Ponds:

Puckle Street in Moonee Ponds always had two op shops and today I discovered that one of them (the Care Bargain Centre) has closed down.  That sucks, because it was a good one. So after lunch, DeeW and I visited the Red Cross Op Shop. This op shop is mostly taken up with clothing, shoes and accessories:

I was all oooooh over this lovely 1940s wedding dress (size XS if you want to go check it out) for $90. I didn’t have as much time to stroke it as I would have liked because going to an op shop with children isn’t exactly the brightest idea:

The clothing wasn’t on the cheaper op shop prices side, but things appeared to be carefully selected and labels included Country Road and Trenery, thanks to a recent collaboration with those labels. The Moonee Ponds Red Cross shop is set up more like a boutique, not a cramped dusty oppie. There was no toys/games area so options for kids were pretty much the clothing racks and not much else apart from a few soft toys. There was a small table with some bowls, platters and assorted ceramics:

I found these sweet yet gives-me-creepy-vibe postcards and paid $2 for the eight of them:

I have no idea what it says on the back.  Probably something about being cursed if I don’t pass the cards on to sixty thousand friends:

I also picked up a $1 VCR tape of the Inspector Gadget movie for the kids. The downside is I’ll have to watch it too.

  1. I never saw the inspector gadget movie but I watched a lot of the show and strangely enough I heard the end of a conversation about inspector gadget today and was really curious about what was being said about him. I love the look of a well ordered op shop but do get suspicious about the prices

I've moved to ! Please go there :)
