Being a bit of a Op Shop fiend last year I contacted the Salvation Army to see if I could help the best way I knew how - Ebaying. Ebay.com.au is a bit behind the UK and USA sites in that it's charity options are not yet available. I ended up getting the okay from the CEO of the Salvo Stores though and have almost reached my $900 mark.
Having no family here (moved from UK) I have a few less child care options so felt I couldn't volunteer with a small child on a regular basis so I buy a few items i think will sell for more on Ebay and then donate the money back.
They are my favourite sales without a doubt.
Just showing you some of my listings today, all found at my local Salvo store - beware sunglasses needed for one of these!!
Yep the last one is bright!!
I mainly pick up ladies clothing and accessories but am always drawn to Hawaiian shirts - still can't work out why I ♥ them though!!
It's a great eeling knowing that what you buy supports a charity and an even better feeling giving them more for it later.
I have a Salvos section in my shop - Dogstar Bazaar I'm sending one lovely vintage pussy bow blouse to Sweden on Monday.
Hope you all have a good weekend - Vicky @ Dogstar Bazaar
