Melbourne Op Shop Tours was born in 2008, the stylish, sassy and sustainable love-child of Jessica, Richmond and Jenny.
While Jessica and Jenny have been rebelling against the uniform grey walls of law school with op shop outfits for years, the motivation to take their hobby to market came in the form of a couple of university competitions and the business expertise of their good friend, Richmond.
Recognising that everyone wants to look chic in stylish outfits, deck out their place in unique and period homewares, shop sustainably, support charities and guard their hip pocket from the unrelenting mark-ups in retail stores, we aim to help you find the best op shops around and discover the many hidden treasures within.
