Upcycle at your local Op Shop! Today, many op shops occupy funky, light-filled spaces and have more of a vintage/retro vibe than ‘second hand’, and the days of inhaling the aroma of mothballs are over. Op shopping is now a competitive market, with many shops establishing a niche product range and clientele. A secondary industry has sprung up with bus tours to op shops that include stops
along the way to coffee shops and restaurants. Have fun with friends while making a difference!
ACH Group regularly runs tours to local op shops through the Social Links ‘Urban Upcyclers’ group. Call us on 1300 22 44 77 to find out more.
