Op Shop Highlight

Every Newsletter, we will feature one of our fantastic Community Op Shops!


One of our newest Community Op Shops, our Beaumaris store is located in the heart of the Beaumaris Concourse. The hustle and bustle of the street make it the perfect location for a local Family Life community hub. Opening in late 2023, the store is managed by Miriam who began her journey with Family Life a few years earlier as a volunteer. Beaumaris has a boutique feel with beautiful fashion, homewares and accessories curated and displayed beautifully!

Come visit us and say hello next time you’re in the area!
Address: 26 S Concourse, Beaumaris VIC 3193

here’s what some of our wonderful volunteers had to say about the Beaumaris store:

What makes your op shop special or special to the area?
An Op Shop in Beaumaris is such a valuable asset and good for the Concourse. The volunteers that I work with and the donations that we get from the community make it special! There is a great sense of community spirit from working here. We have beautiful window displays- just beautiful energy 🙂

It’s a bit of a community hun and we have lovely chats with people. We have lots of local customers!

What is unique about this store?
The displays! People don’t often recognise that it is an op shop, or are surprised to learn that it is an op shop. All the volunteers have a positive attitude and we get so many incredible donations!

It’s very bright, airy, and in the middle of the Beaumaris Concourse, a shopping hub!

There is always something different everyday!

What is the most interesting thing you have sold in the store?
An Art Deco statue of a swimmer with arms extended – it was a real talking piece! The buyer didn’t blink an eye at spending $100! We also have amazing designer dresses.

What special skills or talents does that store have?
Carla. Miriam. Bella. Enough Said! Design, Experience and Knowledge. All the managers are willing to share their advice, opinions and information with the team of volunteers.

Being nice to customers 🙂

Any other comments about the store?
The store always looks lovely! It was needed in this area- something different!
