After the rubble of the Boxing Day sales clears, continue your holiday shopping spree guilt-free at Sydney's best op shops.

Sydney's flagship vegan shopping event is back for a special Christmas edition on Sunday December 19 at a brand new venue. Following the success of SVM's first Night Market, the event is moving over to Sydney Olympic Park. Punters will have plenty of room to spread out for a safe and enjoyable day of physically distanced and cruelty-free activities, vegan snacks and supplies, and ethical stocking stuffers.
