Loads of Love bags are shopping bags of donated non-perishable items such as baked beans, tins of vegetables and the like which can be given out to those in need. You will have to provide your name and contact number and how many people the Loads of Love bag will help. Please also remember you will also need to wear a mask when collecting your bag, unless the Government guidelines change.

When we reopen in 2022 we plan to have a Sale in the Thrift Shop – more details to come

Merry Christmas and have a safe and prosperous 2022 from everyone at the Pantry – Remember Jesus is the reason for the season!

The pogo sticks and baby rocker have been sold, but we still have the cabinet, sleeping bag and car seat for sale. Lots of baby clothes and things too. Don’t forget the Thrift shop is open at the same time as the hamper section – Monday to Friday, 0830 – 12 noon (closed Public holidays).

I have been having a lot of cauliflower cheese lately with the delicious Tatura cheese sauce that we have in the fridge at the moment. I can also recommend the ham tortellini from the freezer……

Hope everyone is enjoying spring!

Hope you coping well with the seasonal changes. We still have our adult winter clothing (not underwear) half price until the end of this week.

These are for younger children (see picture below) and are $15 each. Christmas is coming too……

For the even younger children, we have a baby rocker for $50

There is a small white cabinet for $10 and a sleeping bag for $5, as well as a small stroller for $15. Once I get the instruction manual to print (Aarrgghh!), we will have a car seat for $10 – cover needs a wash but otherwise OK.

Don’t forget the Pantry is closed Monday 4 October for the Queens Birthday holiday! Otherwise we will be open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 12 noon. Safe journeys!

Its the last day of winter and we are having a 50% off all winter items sale! (Underwear not included) Get in and snap up a bargain before Spring arrives tomorrow…..

Seriously, there are a lot of winter items we need to get rid of before we bring down all the summer clothes, so please come and help us have less to pack away and get a bargain at the same time!

We have a lot of hand knitted beanies in a variety of colours, dressing gowns and all sorts of things for winter.

We also have a set of four white suede armchairs for $60 the set. Very comfortable, and not as cold to sit on as leather…. Some arms and seats slightly stained, but all cleaned up as best we can.

QR Code

Our QR Code sheets have finally arrived! There is currently one to the left of the front door and one on the front desk.

We will still need to ask you for your name, phone number and how many you are shopping for for statistical and health regulation reasons. (Food recalls etc.). So please ensure you enter by the front door only (NOT the back door), and see our friendly desk staff – even if you are just looking at the Thrift shop. Thanks!

Lost Property and Things

Just a reminder that you can shop as often as you like, and in any combination you like. Whatever works for you. Some shoppers just need fridge and frozen, plus bread, fruit and veges to tide them over, and some need twice the food to manage.

For example, you can get a full hamper as well as a part hamper at the same time. This way you would get the regular dry goods section, as well as double the fridge, freezer, bread and fruit and veges part of the shop. So $65 for a one and a half shop (or $66.30 if you use a card).

Or you could get two full or part hampers at once, so double the items for a full hamper double shop ($80 cash, $81.60 with a card) or double the fridge/freezer, bread, fruit and veges for the part hamper ($50 cash, $51 card).
