Our op shops
Shop sustainably and buy pre-loved goods at affordable prices.
We are slowly reopening some of our stores
We’re delighted to begin reopening some of our op shops. We’re going to take a phased approach to reopening, so we can do it properly, with all our social distancing and hygiene checks and balances firmly in place.
That means we can now accept your generous donations of quality goods during opening hours!
All donations will be processed within a 48-hour quarantine period, using strict hygiene rules. Unfortunately, we cannot receive donated items at stores that are still closed, so please don’t leave goods outside our stores.
Keeping up-to-date with our op-shops
You can keep up-to-date with the status of our stores and when they re-open by following us on and . We’d love you to share your stories, tips and advice with the wider BSL community to make this period a little easier.
Our online bookstore is still open
We continue to operate our store which is a treasure-trove of tens of thousands of quality second-hand books for you to explore and purchase. With all of us spending more time at home, now’s the time to fall in love (again) with books.
Shopping at our op shops
Our stores are conveniently located throughout Melbourne and Greater Geelong, offering a huge variety of high-quality unique items and everyday household essentials. From clothing and accessories to furniture and collectables, there is always something interesting to be found.
When you buy second hand you’re extending the life of goods and the profits from your purchase help fund a range of life-changing community programs. As well as raising much needed funds, our op shops help job seekers develop their workplace skills, and provide work experience to students.
We look forward to you visiting when we re-open after our temporary closure.
