Review: Op Shop Tour

Words by The Fix February 24, 2014

As we embarked on the Op Shop Tour, Jo O’Callaghan was our op shop guide, singer and entertainer for the morning, sharing not only a song or two but her top secrets on this magical mystery tour. Jo’s ethical tour ensured we only visited ‘not for profit’ stores.

A frenzy of 45 women searched the racks and bric-a-brac while scoffing down a scone and a cup of tea. Corey, our driver, waited very patiently as O’Callaghan rounded us up like a gaggle of geese. Everyone shared their bargains en route to the next op shop and we enthralled at the 20 percent discount the tour offers. Hats and shoes were the hits of the day however we indugled in everything from curtains, scarfs, ‘70s dress-ups and, would you believe, even a wardrobe!

O’Callaghan was vibrant, charismatic and engaging, including everyone on this magical mystery op shop tour. What a fun and entertaining way to spend a Saturday morning!
