This Fitzroy op shop is throwing a live gig

Peak Melbourne.

In what might take the crown for the most hipster thing to happen so far this year, a live gig is happening in a Fitzroy op shop.

As part of their Mystery March campaign, Sacred Heart Mission Op Shops are inviting the masses to donate their quality unwanted items throughout the month.

If you’ve caught the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, chances are you’ve already undergone a cleaning spree and now have bags full of unwanted goods hidden in a cupboard somewhere because you ran out of steam before actually donating it all.

Well now’s your chance, because Sacred Heart are offering a bit of incentive to make a trip to their Fitzroy store. While you offload and shop around, the Fitzroy store will be teeming with music from R&B outfit Paris Plan and ’50s and ’60s inspired rock’n’roll trio Juke Box Racket.

Sacred Heart’s Fitzroy op shop won’t be the only store bringing the goods next month, with Bentleigh, St Kilda, Prahran stores each set to host various events throughout March to show customers where their money goes when spent or donated at Sacred Heart.

Not only will your dollars spent at the op-shop go towards Sacred Heart Mission’s meal program, Journey to Social Inclusion (J2SI) Program, Aged Care facility, Women’s House and other services for those in need, you’ll also be supporting sustainable shopping while kicking it at a free gig.
