Vinnies, Palm Beach
Under its famous blue logo of caring hands, the Vinnies Shop at Palm Beach is located on the busy corner of Palm Beach Avenue and Cypress Terrace and offers secondhand goods including clothing, bric-a-brac, furniture, manchester, toys, books, media and lots more.
This store is run by the St Vincent De Paul Society and aims to raise funds to assist people in need and combat social injustice across Australia.
Without a doubt, this Vinnies is one of the cleanest and most neatly set-out op shops you’ll see, with neat racks of colour-sorted clothing, neatly displayed household wares and bric-a-brac, well sorted books, carefully displayed shoes, and clean-as-new toys and manchester.
The front racks are adorned with seasonal and feature displays – it’s a great place to find an appropriately matched or themed outfit for Melbourne Cup day, Valentine’s Day or Christmas.
Fusing near-new and old, fancy and fine, this op shop has something for everyone, making it well worthy of its place in the list of best vintage, retro and op shops on the Gold Coast.
