THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all our members that put on and supported a very successful Pop Up Op Shop/Garage Sale as a 2021 National Convention Fundraiser on Saturday.

About eight of us loaded our cars to the brim with every kind of item you could think of that had been kindly donated by our members. We created a market within the church hall and in the car park.

Our first customer was an Op Shop professional! She arrived right on time at 8:30am and had the time of her life rummaging through everything (as we continued to set up) with squeals of “I’m so happy, I’m so happy!”

As the morning progressed, more and more members strolled through our doors with their own donations, but very few left without picking up some treasures they couldn’t leave behind.

There were all kinds of clothing, shoes, accessories, kitchenware and appliances, a bike (sold as it was being unloaded), a high chair (donated to the church as we could see they had several in a corner), toys, movies, books, games, oh goodness there was so much to choose from!

A VERY special thank you to the volunteers (Alison M, Anna L, Heather G, Steph S, Lyn W, Helen C, Tim B, Donna S, Monica O, and Heidi V) who helped deliver everything to the hall, set up the market, served and sold as much as possible and then loaded it all back up again into their cars. As well as all the members who supported by shopping, visiting, chatting and even just announcing the fundraiser at meetings – you all contributed so THANK YOU.

We look forward to seeing you at our next "Epic Event".

Yours in service
