Barnardos Australia: Peter Pan Op Shop Summer Sale

Gosh, I love a good op shop. You just never know what you're going to find. And Sydney's best is back:

I randomly ventured into an op shop in Newton a few weeks ago and found a brand new pair of black Sandler heels for $20! The same store gave me a pair of white, I-wear-them-to-death, perfect-heeled wedges I wear non-stop.

And now, the twice a year event from Barnardos Australia is back!

For over 70 years, Sydney buyers with a social conscience and an eye for fashion have been returning twice a year to trawl through the chic array of top-end items at rock bottom prices.

All proceeds go to Barnardos Australia to keep children safe from abuse and neglect.

So, go ahead and bag a guilt-free bargain from the treasure trove of unique pre-loved designer and vintage clothes, shoes and accessories from the wardrobes of leading Sydney fashionistas, as well as brand new designer wear and end of season stock.

Barnardos’ supporters sass & bide have once again committed to donating rare fashion treasures and samples from their latest collections. OH MY!

To date, the sales have raised over 1 million dollars for leading child welfare charity Barnardos Australia. Here are all the details:
