The Op Shop
In 2009, one of our first volunteers, Dot Page, had the idea of opening a Community Op Shop. From small beginnings, the little shop has blossomed and grown into the “Best Little Op Shop” on the Sunshine Coast. People travel from far and wide to pick up a bargain and do their bit to help others and reduce landfill. The shop is staffed by our fantastic volunteers and the proceeds from the Op Shop are channeled back into community programs, services and the upkeep of the MVCA building and grounds.
Upstairs we have: women’s, men’s and children’s clothing. Jewellery, shoes, hats, bags, scarves etc. Knitting and craft.
Downstairs is a Treasure trove! There are books, toys, electrical, kitchenware, and lots more.
Our Op Shop is open Mon – Sat, 9am to 1pm
We have an amazing Community that is so generous with their donations that sometimes we are overflowing!
We happily accept most items provided they are suitable for resale in our shop, are in good working order, not broken damaged, stained or torn.
Unfortunately there are things we cannot re-sell and therefore don’t accept:
- Motorcycle and bicycle helmets
- Opened toiletries and consumables
- High chairs, cots, baby capsules & prams without the Australian Standard
- Any items broken or incomplete
If you're not sure, please call us ahead to check.
How can I donate?
You can drop off your donations at the shop during our open hours or outside of those hours you can leave them on our verandah out of the weather.
