We were joined by 3 lovely op shoppers all the way from tiny Bridgetown, which has a population of approximately 2,324 (2006 census), and sits 270 kilometres south of Perth, Western Australia.
The three Bridgetown friends were on a short trip to Melbourne, and chose to book onto a Melbourne Op Shop Tour as part of their weekend itinerary. What a fun activity to do together, I'd like to do the same on an interstate trip too.
Whilst the day was not the best walking weather being so frightfully cold and wet, this did not deter our thrifty shoppers. On our first stop in Sandringham, almost all of our op shoppers walked away with something, most with a bagful of pre-loved. Proof of our success, shown in bags of loot, rested during our lunch stop at our halfway point.
