Find funky pre-loved threads inside one of King Street's most inviting shopfronts

Walking into Newtown’s Red Cross Op Shop is more like entering somebody’s lovingly designed living room than a retail venue. Sure, they’ve got a killer, colour-coded window display of very chic mannequins and racks of meticulously organised outfits, but everything in between – the cute fake flowers, the nanna’s cabinet display of crockery, the somehow discrete chandeliers and the cosy book corner – really makes you feel at home. When you do start trawling through the colourful waterfall of clothes, you’ll find plenty of near-new, flowy boho numbers, like a Mombasa Rose dress for a semi-steep $28, slightly exxier pieces like the satisfyingly heavy suede skirt we stumbled upon for $50, and then more accessible items on the long rack of sturdy denim duds that go for $10-$20. Dudes are well catered for in the slacks and chinos department, and can also do an overhaul of their fancy business wardrobe with finds like a Tommy Hilfiger button-down for $20. The shop also has everyone sorted across the board for shoes, chunky accessories and hats for all seasons.
