January Online Edit: Olivia's Top Picks from Salvos Online

01/19/2022

In my 'Top Tips for Op Shopping' blog post I talked about how one of the main things that discourages people from shopping second-hand is the perception of op shopping as difficult or overly time-consuming. Although I hope that the tips listed in that post can help make op shopping seem a little less daunting, I also understand that sometimes travelling to a physical store can feel like an unnecessary effort compared to the ease of shopping online from the comfort of your couch (...or office, or bed). And of course, the practical benefits of online shopping are particularly relevant at the moment due to COVID-19.

However, shopping second-hand and shopping online do not have to be mutually exclusive, and in fact what you might not know is that at Salvos we have our very own online store which you can shop from anywhere in Australia! So, you can shop easily, affordably, and sustainably without sacrificing that specific, satisfying 'rush' that only seems to come from online shopping. Whether you're a seasoned op-shopper wanting to search beyond your local stores for some great finds or someone who is still new to second-hand style and appreciates the extra guidance provided by a simply categorised website, shopping via Salvos online is a great option.

To give you a taste of the amazing stuff you can find on our online store, I went through the site and picked out my top ten favourite pieces available at the moment.
