A good op shop rummage can bring joy.
Let’s spend a Saturday riding about looking for good second hand stuff. You might find a bargain, or you can play ‘treasure hunt’ (I’ve prepared a list of kitsch junk you can have fun trying to find.)
We’ll start at the Brotherhood of St Lawrence on Brunswick Road around 9:30am , then make our way north -ish, have lunch at Al-Alamy in Coburg https://www.broadsheet.com.au/melbourne/shops/al-alamy
Over a Zatar and coffee we’ll make plans for the afternoon, either continue op-shopping in the wilds of Fawkner and Glenroy or head east to Preston and Thornbury, to finish at a pub for a beer and to show off purchases. I’m basing the route on a map I prepared a while ago of the op shops of Brunswick Coburg – https://www.google.com/maps/@-37.7336116,144.9113305,12.77z/data=!4m2!6m1!1s1izvfB8amzH1vOKPg24WmCLPIcG4 but op shops move and change opening hours so it’s more likely to be creative chaos navigation. That said I’ll try to avoid main roads where I can.
