con•sum•er•ismnoun                                                                                                                                                                      the fact or practice of an increasing consumption of goods
the concept that an ever-expanding consumption of goods is advantageous to the economy.
The whole point of  fashion is to find what suits us. In size, color, and style: we want well-made and comfortable clothes that we can afford. We want to feel good because we're wearing something we truly love and not just what's in style at the moment. 

 Australia seems to have an engaged consumer base when it comes to shopping. Thrifting and Upcycling are all the rage. This business sounds like heaven to me

Melbourne Op Shop Tours offers you the most stylish and sustainable of adventures through Melbourne’s second-hand wonderlands. We recognise that everyone wants to look chic in stylish outfits, deck out their place in unique and period homewares, shop sustainably, support charities and guard their hip pocket from the unrelenting mark-ups in retail stores. Our tour guides – all expert op shoppers – will show you the best op shops, second-hand boutiques and vintage stores around and help you style your finds.
Tour groups are kept nice and small to make sure everyone has a chance to pick up some fabulous bargains without having to resort to fighting their fellow op shoppers.
Trust us when we say that there is nothing quite like the thrill of finding something incredible after rifling through racks and racks of clothes or spotting that classic you have been meaning to read jammed between a microwave cookbook circa the 1980s and ‘The Joy of Grilling’.
If this all sounds foreign to you, we are more than happy to teach you the art of rifling through racks and spotting hidden treasures.
