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).

We are also amassing a few lost property items. So far at the desk there is a single earring, some lego blocks, a single white baby sock and a BGL machine! If any of these are yours, please come and collect them. Some pictures below…..
We have a number of flavoured coffee pods for use (the ones that go in the machines) and our enterprising volunteers have investigated and found that they work OK if poured into a coffee plunger tray. So if you want to give it a go and have a coffee plunger, come and get some. Apparently not good just made as a spoonful in a cup of coffee……. 😦
We have a good selection in the fridge and freezer this week and also a lot to offer in fruit and veges. We still have some of the small Easter eggs….. and other nibblies.
A reminder that we will be closed on Monday 9 August for the Ekka Show Holiday. Spring is only 5 weeks away…..Keep warm!
It is hard to leave the house in this colder weather, but a trip to the Pantry is worth the effort! We have a lot in our fridge and freezer this week, and also lots of fresh and frozen bread. If you have a sweet tooth, I can recommend the Kinder Surprise flavoured Easter eggs (yes, I know its July, but….. they are small and bite-sized and very moreish!). We also have some interesting items in the dry good shelves – come and take a look.
Our resident Test and Tagger has been busy, so there are a lot of electrical items for sale again. The $20 microwave is still here as well as a crockpot, toaster and George Foreman grill. There are a couple of TV’s and sound systems there too, and lots of other things. Come and snap up a bargain.
After last weeks rainy days we have put some raincoats and winter things out in the Thrift shop. There are some lovely hand-knitted baby cardigans on the racks at the moment. The stuffed toys are also looking for a new home. We have a cabinet with nice jewellery and watches and special gifts – ask for help if you want to have a look inside. Christmas will be here before you know it…….
The Thrift Shop still has a lot of bargains for sale. We have sold the round wooden table and four chairs, but there are some smaller furniture items for sale (Please note, we do not deliver). Our test and tag specialist has completed a whole lot of electrical items ready for sale.
We currently have a microwave for $20, a multi processor for $15, several lamp bases, and other bargain items ready for sale. There is a wheelie walker as well for $50 ( they range up from $125 new), and we have a lot of baby clothes for sale, mostly 50c each. We also have some bedding as well, even doggy blankets.
Of course we still have a lot of summer and winter clothing ready for sale. Some of the work clothes mentioned last post have gone – they looked sharp! – but there are still some available. The Thrift Shop, like the main Pantry, is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 12 noon (Closed Public Holidays)
The Thrift Shop is having a sale! 50% off all summer clothing!
We have a lot of summer clothing and need to make way for our winter clothes to be displayed. You can help by buying some clothes! It will be summer again one day…….
We also have some furniture and electrical goods for sale – all electrical goods are tested and tagged. There is a lovely polished round wooden table with four upholstered chairs for sale for $250 – a bargain!
The Thrift Shop
As well as the food hamper side of the Pantry, we also have a Thrift Shop on-site. This is open at the same time, 0830 – 1200, Monday to Friday. We have clothes, shoes, bric-a-brac, books, household goods and occasionally furniture for sale.
We currently have a lot of clothing available, so come in and snap up a bargain. We occasionally have bins of free clothing too. From time to time we have sales as well – watch this space!
In summary, we are open Monday to Friday each week from 0830 – 1200 each day.
New customers need to fill in a registration form for statistical purposes, and all customers need to provide a phone number (for COVID tracing purposes) each time they shop. You do not need to be on a pension card, welfare payment or government support to shop at tHe Pantry
There are two styles of hampers available – a Full Hamper for a $40 handling fee which has dry goods, fridge and freezer items, bread and fruit and vegetables. There is a smaller Part hamper available for $25 which has everything the Full Hamper has except the dry goods.
When you shop we will ask if you have been before, ask for your name and phone number, how many you are shopping for (Adults and children) and what size hamper you would like.
