Unfortunately, due to building issues beyond our control we have had to permanently close the Payneham Op Shop. Thank you to all of our volunteer staff and customers over the years for your time and support. Our Elcies Op Shop on The Parade, Norwood is only 6 minutes away. We hope to see you all again soon at one of our other Op Shop locations.

Op Shop Donations Guide

Each year our volunteers sort, pack and move thousands of bags of clothing and bric-a-brac items. The process of receiving, sorting, packing, pricing and displaying does take time and unfortunately we are not able to accept some items.

Please ensure all items are in good, usable condition.

Donations we cannot accept

  • Specific school uniforms for children
  • Televisions, computer monitors and printers
  • Broken, incomplete or unclean children’s toys
  • VHS cassettes or cassette players
  • Old magazines and used stationery (including old personal diaries and calendars)
  • Used art/craft supplies (e.g. opened paint kits, new is fine)
  • Illegitimate DVDs, computer games or audio CDs – it is against the law in Australia to retail unofficial copies e.g. ‘burnt CDs’
  • Any type of restraint baby items (e.g. high chairs, cots, bouncers)

  • Clothing of all sizes for men, women and children which are clean and presentable
