Visit our Op Shops 

Helping Hands Mission Inc. operates six op shops across Victoria – five in Melbourne and one in the central Victorian town of Bridgewater on Loddon, just outside of Bendigo.

Each of our op shops offers something different, whether it’s vintage fashion, quality furniture, budget-friendly clothing, or bric-a-brac and household items.

 

Helping Hands Airport West Fullarton Road Clearance Centre 

492 Fullarton Road, Airport West

This may just be the biggest op shop in Australia! Our huge warehouse at Fullarton Road is packed to the rafters full of bargains. You’ll find all the usual op shop goodies like great books, bric-a-brac, homewares and records, plus a huge range of furniture (much of it brand new, or restored with love in our Community Shed); a dedicated Toy Barn, and a Community Kitchen where on weekdays you can get morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea free of charge (or for a small donation if you’re able to give).

Monday – Saturday: 10am - 4pm

 

 

Helping Hands Sunshine Op Shop 

85 Hampshire Road, Sunshine 

We added Sunshine to our op shop trail in February 2017 and it has been embraced by the Brimbank community. We have a lovely little reading corner, with all books just $1, a play area and toy section for the kids, lots of furniture, beds and other household essentials, as well as our famous $2 clothing. We're conveniently located on Hampshire Road, just a couple of minutes walk from Sunshine Train Station. 

Monday – Saturday: 10am - 4pm

 

 

 

Gaye's Vintage Shop 

18 Knighton Avenue, Airport West

An absolute treasure trove for lovers of vintage fashion, you’ll find an amazing array of vintage evening gowns, day dresses, boots, heels, coats and accessories, as well as great pieces for the home – think ornate gold mirrors, framed art, and beautiful tea sets and servingware. There’s also a great range of pre-loved men’s, women’s and kids fashion, beautiful linen and loads of craft items. Named in memory of Gaye Roberts, our much-loved store manager who dedicated countless hours over many years and made this store such a special place.

Saturday 10am - 1pm

 

 

Helping Hands Preston Op Shop

Our Roxy shop opened in late 2015, and it’s huge! Providing the people of Melbourne’s North with a great range of clothing at just $2 per item, plus a huge selection of furniture, household items, books and toys, you’re sure to find something special for a bargain price at this store.

Helping Hands Bridgewater Op Shop - closed until further notice

11 Main Street, Bridgewater on Loddon

Our beloved ‘Bridgy’ shop opened in early 2016, occupying the old church on the hill in the main street, and has been embraced by the local community and travellers on the Calder Highway ever since. The church is once again a hub of activity and stocks all the usual op shop gems, like good books, quality cookwear and crockery, beautiful jewellery, toys for the kids and a great range of linen. Check us out if you’re a local, or plan a trip out of town and come for a visit – it’s a nice easy run up the Calder from Melbourne.

Opening Hours

Tuesday – Friday: 10am - 4pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

How you can help

We are thankful to the local community for the quality items they donate to Helping Hands, and we very gratefully accept donations at all of our stores during business hours. Please note, if your donation is a large item we ask that you bring it to our Fullarton Road Clearance Centre, where we have the capacity to process larger donations.

Pick-ups can be arranged by dropping into any of our shops or calling 1300 892 010.

Running seven op shops is a big job and we are always looking for an extra set of helping hands. If you are interested in joining our wonderful team of volunteers, please drop into one of our shops or download our Volunteer Application Form.

We are often asked what happens to the money we raise via our op shops, and we are very proud to be able to say that all monies raised are used to support our Emergency and Material Aid Programs.

Without the funds raised from our shops, we wouldn’t be able to run these important programs that make a difference to the lives of so many people in need each week. We thank all those who donate to Helping Hands and all our wonderful customers  - by donating or shopping with us, you’re making a giving back and making a positive difference to your local community.
