It's a shopper's dream: walk into a store, browse the racks, and then nab a half-price bargain. Trust those vintage fiends at Vinnies to put the idea into practice, and to keep raising money for charity in the process.
Vinnies 50 Percent Off Sale is exactly what it sounds like. Expect the usual array of clothing, accessories and other items to grace their racks, not that there's anything usual about trawling for secondhand treasure. Not knowing what you'll find is all part of the experience — but, this time, you're paying half of what you'd normally pay.
The sale runs from Friday, April 16–Saturday, April 17 at Vinnies stores across Queensland, with the full list of sites — which includes the Brisbane CBD, Fortitude Valley, Newstead, Paddington, Coorparoo, West End and Stones Corner shops — available on the organisation's website. In the Greater Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas, the discount doesn't apply to furniture. But, if you spend $20, you'll get a $5 voucher to use before June 30.
