Salvos Stores will again be partnering with NACRO (National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations) in celebrating the third annual National Op Shop Week to be held from the 24th to the 31st of August. National Op Shop Week is a joint initiative of DoSomething! and the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO). The week seeks to raise awareness of the importance of supporting op shops in our community.
For National Op Shop Week Salvos Stores are bringing the store to you through the creation of their ‘Pop Up Op Shop’. A converted van, powered by eco-friendly solar panels, transforms into a funky fashion store which will be popping up at Martin Place on Monday 25th August from 7.30am to 3.30pm. And as shopping is such hungry work, Salvos Stores will be providing free breakfast baps for everyone between 7.30am – 8.30am! A fashion show will also be staged at lunch time to showcase the vintage and current recycled fashion trends found at local Salvos Stores, perfect for the fashion savvy, budget conscious consumer.
Faye De Lanty, TV fashion commentator and eco/op shop fashion blogger, and Josh Flinn, TV fashion commentator and stylist, have come on board as brand ambassadors for the Salvos Stores partnership with National Op Shop Week. Faye will be curating the lunch time fashion show, and says 'I am thrilled to be an ambassador for the Salvos and National Op Shop week as it’s safe to say I am a thriftshop-aholic! Through my blog Fashion Hound, my existing partnership with Salvos Stores and my role as eco fashion warrior for Ch9 Mornings, I am beyond passionate about showing people how their sartorial choices can help to save the planet. Reuse, reinvent and reduce your fashion footprint'.
