Doss Blockos Op Shop Party 2012

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Prahran Mission Opportunity Shop on Melbourne's popular fashion retail strip Chapel Street, and boutique pale larger company Doss Blockos got together for their second Doss Blockos Op Shop Party (2012) last night.


The party was sure to attract an eclectic mix of Melbourne's trendy folk, and quite rightly so, featuring a DJ spinning top tunes, alcoholic drinks, BBQ food, superb views of Melbourne's beautiful skyline, and a room dedicated to second hand donated clothes, available to buy throughout the night.

Being that it is the day after the night before, and the video for last nights event is yet to be published, you can view last year's Doss Blockos Op Shop Party 2011 here, to get a feel for the night:

With the perfect excuse for an op shop night out, Melbourne Bloggers I Love To Op Shop, A Little Boutique Near Home and I headed to Doss Blockos Op Shop Party together.  On entry, we were given our ticket, resembling that of a concert gig, which we'd pre-ordered online.

Tickets were $30, which we were able to reimburse at the party. The ticket entitled party goers to a $20 voucher toward a second hand purchase of clothing from the op shop room, the $10 remaining, we could use toward our drinks. All profits from the night, were donated back to the Prahran Mission, and inevitably back to the community.
Earrings, $4 a pair

Whilst we did find it very hard to move around in the small room displaying second hand clothing for sale, the party was well organised, and lots of fun.

 Massive line up to pay/reimburse our vouchers for clothing

To be perfectly honest, I did not go with the intention to buy anything, but, I did find a pair of second hand black cuban heeled boots, that I didn't know I needed, till I saw them last night!   $12 a pair, which I could use my $20 ticket reimbursement for.  Brilliant.

Well done Prahran Mission for organising a fun way to op shop out of hours, raising much needed funds to support those living with mental illness.

"I did not go with the intention to buy anything" I think I've heard that before :-)

Was a fun night, looking forward to being able to sample the beer next time!

Nice post! The boots looked awesome. I've had the Thrift Shop song stuck in my head all day too, by the way!
