Market for Op Shop Week
IT’S all treasure as The Nik Nak Shed celebrates National Op Shop Week.
The Shed, run by volunteers, held a massive market day yesterday to celebrate Op Shop Week to encourage people to donate to the cause.
Co-ordinator Jo Westgate said the event was a great success.
“Lots of bargains were had by all,” she said.
“The Shed provides much needed income to help fund the many services and programs which are provided at the Port Douglas Neighbourhood Centre to assist many people in the community.
“The Shed would not be such a success without the generosity of our local community and being able to sell
“We are unable to sell stained, pilled, torn clothing, second hand underwear is unsellable, as well as broken toys, stained linen and pillows.
“Spoiled items are sorted then dropped to the tip which just makes extra work for our hard working volunteers.”
The Shed also ran a pancake stall, with fresh strawberries and cream, to support strawberry farmers.
The Port Douglas Community Service Network’s opportunity shop has been supporting the local community for more than 20 years.
The shed sells donated quality clothing, books, toys, jewellery, linen, bric-a-brac and all proceeds go back into the community via the program operated by the Port Douglas Community Services Network Inc.
Jo Westgate, Mandy Stone, Mark M and Terry Summerall celebrated National Shop Week at the Nik Nak Shed.
