Salvos Stores is Australia’s largest charity recycler helping to re-home your quality pre-loved items. The profits from these stores go directly to The Salvation Army to help fund the various social programs and support they offer to the less fortunate – including 100,000 meals and 2,000 beds every week.
‘Original Trendsetter’ is a new campaign launched by Salvos Stores to celebrate vintage and as part of the campaign they will set up a one off pop-up store at Flinders Street Station on July 13, the pop-up will be open from 3-7pm.
Salvos Stores has become an Australian Institution in the very many years since they began reselling donated items in 1883. They have built a reputation as Australia’s leading stockist for pre-loved goods as they help those in need as well as the environment by recycling and reselling donated items.
Salvos Stores contain a veritable treasure trove of clothing, accessories, household items and other goods from many different eras – the perfect range for 2012 when vintage is making a come back.
The month of July plays a large part in the Original Trendsetter campaign with Salvos Stores running a treasure hunt like never before. Every morning a specific item will be uploaded to the Salvos Stores Facebook page. Treasure Hunters need to get into Salvos Stores and snap a pic of the item and upload it to the Facebook page by midnight of that day. People who uncover Salvos Stores treasure will receive a 50% off clothing voucher that can be printed for use at any Salvos Stores across Western Australia, Northern Territory, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
