Lady Melbourne on a $100 op-shop challenge for ACA


Jenny from Melbourne Op-Shop Tours
A little while ago I participated in a challenge set forth by A Current Affair, where by they got a couple of people to see how many outfits they could find for $100 at op-shops.
I seem to spend most of my life in op-shops so was thrilled when they got in contact with me and asked if I would like to take part.
Jenny from Melbourne Op-Shop Tours and I were the guest judges for the day and our job was to pick the best outfit of the bunch. It was tough because they all seemed to do extremely well from the exercise, but I have to say that the boots that Zoe picked up from {also} Fabulous Op Shop were hard to beat.
You can watch the video here, I only wish I'd been given $100 to spend myself!
We visited:
Savers in Sydney Rd Brunswick
Salvation Army store in Erol St North Melbourne
{also} Fabulous Op Shop in Smith St Collingwood

This is a great segment and I'm so jealous about the boots! Have you considered running your own tours LM?

Oh it's great to see ACA talking about and encouraging op shopping. Their audience is so huge, so hopefully a lot of people will be encouraged to step out and try it - for the sake of their own personal style and for sustainable reasons as well.

Saw it last night - great segment. Shows what great stuff you can get if you're prepared to hunt for it.

Such a great site LM - loving the op shop work! I recently discovered www.yoink.com to give away some old clothes, thought it was a great idea, and you may appreciate it! x Luca

The thought of op shops scares me, especially seeing how HUGE Savers is, I wouldn't know where to start!

That was a great segment on A Current Affair! Op Shops can be extremely undervalued or even illconsidered.

Good work Lady M! x
