Wayside Chapel's community service centres have been offering vital support for Sydneysiders in need since 1964. Its mission is to provide unconditional help to locals experiencing homelessness, addiction, mental health issues and social isolation. This work has become more important than ever during the COVID pandemic, with even more people looking to the charity for assistance.

But, with both Wayside Chapel Op Shops (in Kings Cross and Bondi) currently closed to the public, getting funding for the community organisation has been especially difficult.

So, Wayside launched its Online Op Shop this month. Expect to find pre-loved designer and vintage fashion items at bargain prices here. At the moment, the shop includes finds (for both women and men) from designers like I Am Gia, Assembly, Manning Cartel, Michael Kors, Marimekko, Antipodium London and Religion, all for just $30–4o.

Plus entire vintage and accessory sections too. And every single dollar spent goes straight to Wayside's programs and services.

Shopping here has a big, big impact. Thanks to community funding, Wayside has provided over 15,000 hot meals and groceries, over 3000 pieces of clothing and blankets and over 1000 warm showers and care packs — and that's just from March to June this year.

If you are looking to downsize your wardrobe, Wayside Chapel also accepts quality donations to their Op Shop, and offers other ways to donate too.
