Your Charity Shop Needs You!!!

It’s National Op Shop week this week (25 Aug – 1 Sept), so schedule in a Spring Clean, refresh your wardrobe and do a good deed!

National Op Shop week is a great initiative organised by the Charity Do Something, to help boost stocks for Op Shops and the charities behind them.

Follow our easy guide to performing your own wardrobe clear out and if it’s becoming a mission fit for an expert, call us about our Wardrobe Refresh Packages!

  • Clean and thoroughly dry winter clothes, then pack them into air tight containers and store them away.
  • Mend damaged items or get rid of them.
  • If clothes don’t fit you anymore, give them to charity! We hear lots of people saying…’when I lose weight or when I put weight back on, I’ll need these again’.  Hmmm, that might be the case, but if they don’t fit you now, get them out of your cupboard space!
  • Don’t just throw items out because you haven’t warn them for a while, try them on and see what they look like. You might spark a comeback!
  • Items looking faded and worn – either dye them or donate them.

Be selective – In 2012, 60,000 tonnes of items donated were unusable and disposed of in landfill – the cost for this is borne by the charities. That’s why only good quality items should be donated to charity op shops, so:

  • Don’t leave clothes if they are damaged, dirty or worn out.
  • If clothes come in pairs e.g. gloves, attach them together. Tie shoes together with their laces.
  • Make sure you empty all your pockets and donate any treasure you find!

So get clearing and donating!!!

Spring Summer Collections

Myer showed off their Spring/Summer collection tonight….I think I caught most of it, although was very distracted by everyone’s ab muscles (must go to the gym more)!

We have lots of monochrome, pastels, bold colours and florals to look forward to.  Goodbye Winter, hello Spring!!!

I am totally in love with this Aurelio Costarella dress. Love, love, love!
