The Lane Cove Opportunity Shopper

Lane Cove Op shops

One of our long time followers is a keen shopper at the local Opportunity Shops. We asked her to show us some of her best buys. Below you will find some of her great finds. To be a really good opportunity shopper, you need to visit the stores regularly. Op shops have a constant turn over of donations, with new bags full of treasures arriving every day.

In Lane Cove, we have two opportunity/goodwill stores.

Vinnies is located at 89 Longueville Road. It is open from 9am-5pm Mon-Sat, and 10am-4pm on Sun.

St Vincent De Paul Lane Cove
