Collectables turns one

1 Jun 2017 9:00 AM -
We can't believe that it has been 12 months since we opened the doors on our boutique op shop and social enterprise, Collectables.

The support from the Toowoomba community has been terrific and we've met many kind and generous people. Special thanks to our Foundation Partner Toowoomba Toyota who've given us that extra helping hand to get the enterprise off the ground.

The best part of our first year journey has been seeing our clients grow with confidence as they don their special apron, greet customers, master the EFTPOS machine and prepare items for the shop.

The back area of the Collectables space has been expanded to include a Men's Shed that produces fantastic hand-made items such as dog beds, picture frames, book cases and Christmas decorations. We're now selling many of these items in the op shop with the proceeds being used to purchase more materials for new creations.

The Collectables Facebook page is brimming with happy snaps, items for sale and clients in action. Please take a look next time you're scrolling.

To celebrate our 1st birthday, we're holding a Dollar Garage Sale on Saturday 3 June. If you get a chance, we'd love to see you there so we can share some birthday cake with you.
