I op to shop

In the past year or so my Mum and I have become extremely addicted to op shopping. Op shops are an endless treasure trove of abandoned items just waiting to be found by the right person. It's such a happy feeling coming home with a stash of great finds after a successful op shopping trip, knowing that a) you are supporting a worthy cause as most op shops are run by charities; b) you're doing a small part in sustaining the environment by recycling and finding a new use for something; and c) you've found unique treasure(s) for an absolute steal.

I love reading about the bargains and interesting finds people make at op shops which is why I have decided to create a blog to share my own finds, and hopefully inspire people to find their inner op shopper. With that said, I'd like to welcome you to The Secret Lives of Op Shops. My name is Bec, and I'm an Opaholic.


  1. hi Bec Thanks for following Two Pink Possums. I am addicted to op shops as well and just yesterday I found some gorgeous vintage sheets I will post about soon. Can't wait to see what you have been finding too! :)
