Invisible Illnesses Inc operates a local op shop where the money goes back into supporting our community.
Note: Coming soon – Online Shop.
Picture your dream home…
Now, I’m going to go out on a limb here and bet it’s NOT filled with clutter.
Nobody moves into a new home thinking: “I can’t wait to fill up this entire house with stuff.” Yet somewhere along the way, it just sort of happens. Things begin to accumulate…In our closets and drawers, basements and attics, garages, sheds and storage units.
But by removing the clutter, we make room in our homes and minds to focus on what we care about most.
Shop 4 A Cause will help you get rid of your unwanted clutter. We will accept all good quality clean items, including furniture
Our aim is to assist families and those who may be socially isolated build that network of people who could walk beside them and help them. For customers to leave the store, not only with affordable clothing, but also feeling like they were emotionally cared for.
It’s good for the environment.
By donating unwanted items to us it means there is less going into landfill. One pre-loved denim jeans bought at an Op Shop means one less pair needed to be purchased new. The more we think sustainably about what we wear, the more it can have an impact on demand and the way our clothes are produced.
Good for the Community
This is another great thing about bargain hunting at your local Op Shop. We will plough whatever surplus we make back into the community and help keep Invisible Illnesses sustainable for the future.
It’s not just about the quick sale to reach daily revenue targets. We encourage the community to stay and chat with our volunteers
We can also offer help when it’s needed the most. Items that we are unable to sell in the store we put aside for the homeless. We have been able to help those who have been in a situation where they need to purchase household items and are unable to afford them. We happily donate food, furniture, clothing etc to help them get back on their feet.
We can also connect people to financial counsellors or other services should they need it
Good for your budget
We all know Op Shopping can often save you a packet. You can grab clothing for $2 Big brands, vintage finds, they’re all there for a bargain at times. We want to be a “traditional” Op Shop where everyone can afford to come and get a heap of items at really low prices.
We will also be able to provide food for people on low incomes. For $10 anyone who needs it can purchase a bag of long-lasting pantry items to help stretch their budget further.
Good for you
It is amazing to see what people no longer want! One person’s supposed “trash” can definitely be another’s treasure when it comes to Op Shopping. We have new stock arriving every.
Finally, Op Shopping is a lot of fun! There is something that appeals to our senses as we hunt around for that perfect find. There’s also that sense of satisfaction as you walk out the door with clothes that speak to your individuality. Clothes no longer found in fashion stores that reflect the colours and style you love.
Donations can be dropped off at the store during opening hours
Mon – Fri 9am – 4pm
Sat 9am – 3pm
Sun 10am – 3pm
The shop will be open 7 days a week, except Christmas Day, Good Friday & ANZAC Day
We are located at 15 Dixon Road Rockingham
