Op shop regulars will know the fascinating fashions and bargains to be had when browsing the racks of second-hand clothes.
Guests at the inaugural Dressed By Vinnies Day fashion parade in Bega were left in no doubt of that.
Held at the Bega Country Club, a sell-out audience enjoyed a fashion parade where all items were sourced from St Vincent de Paul’s Bega op shop donations. There was also supper provided by the organisation’s volunteers.
A Vinnies spokesperson said the night was a wonderful success and sincerely thanked the community for getting behind the idea.
They also thanked the various businesses that donated prizes for the night’s festivities.
All money raised on the night, through tickets, raffles, the trading tables and donations will be distributed back into the community through St Vincent de Paul’s work in the Bega district, an example of which is Vinnies’ assistance in drought relief efforts.
