“The Ashy” Op Shop

The Ashy Op Shop will be closed for business until further notice.

With the ongoing progression of COVID-19 in Melbourne, we are again forced to close the Op Shop for the time being. The health and safety of our workforce (largely volunteer) and our customers is most important to Samarinda. We apologise for any inconvenience this decision may cause.

In the mean time, please enjoy our online store!

Some great reasons to visit “The Ashy” Op Shop

  • Retro fashion: you’ll find vintage clothing and designer brands
  • Great bargains: particularly if you’re creative and on a budget
  • Help the local community: all proceeds go directly towards our community and residential service programmes
  • Environmentally friendly: recycling pre-loved goods reduces landfill and CO2 emissions
  • Great variety: from the refreshingly bizarre to the tastelessly mundane
  • High turnover: new stock arrives daily but hurry in, great buys don’t hang around

What can I donate?

Our op shop accepts quality clothing donations, accessories, books and bric-a-brac, homewares and furniture. If it’s good enough quality to give to a friend, then it’s something we’d love.

(We don’t accept mattresses, electrical goods or stained/damaged clothing.)

It’s easy to donate

Simply drop your pre-loved donations at our op shop or donation bins. See below for store location and hours of operation.

  • Do not leave goods out in the open – if they don’t fit in our donation bin, they may get weather damaged
  • If an item is stained, torn or broken, we can’t accept it
  • If an item is breakable/fragile, please wrap before donating

If you want to donate some quality items that are too big to drop off, please call us to arrange our free collection service.
Call us on 9885 5923 or 9058 6050
