Time Out says

Grab a bargain and help survivors of domestic abuse at this Brisbane op shop

It is difficult to think of a braver or more worthy cause than Broken to Brilliant, a not-for-profit organisation started by domestic abuse survivors. By mentoring recent victims, Broken to Brilliant empowers them to rebuild their lives, take control of their finances and move on to a new and better chapter.

The city op shop is in the Adelaide Street Arcade, an easy walk from King George Square. The store is well stocked with a lovely range of low-cost women’s clothing, bric-a-brac and accessories for less than $20. It’s a great place to build up your work wardrobe. The Adelaide Street Arcade also houses other charity and clothing shops where you might nab some genuine retro treasures.

Broken to Brilliant also has a shop at Geebung, where I purchased a stylish long-sleeved shirt for only $9. Geebung, conveniently close to the train station, also has regular plant sales.
