How To: OPSHOPPING WITH OPSOC

CANTA Issue #5, 2017

Opshopping with Opsoc

Opshopping wins every time, hands down. You get original clothing and goods, and you’re helping out the environment by being a human seagull with no shame! If you play your cards right, you end up with some sweet deals. One man’s charity fun run tee from 2003 is another man’s outfit for MONO.

We asked OpSoc for their five best opshops in the 03.

1. $3 DOLLAR WAREHOUSE
Literally everything is pretty much 3 dolla$$ and it’s huge. You cannot find a cheaper secondhanded clothing store around Christchurch. 5 stars. 7 Settlers Crescent.

2. SAVEMART SYDENHAM
Biggest and bestest Savemart. 5 stars as well. Absolute monster and houses almost any clothing piece you could want. Not 3 dolla$ but still meanage. 53 Battersea Street.

3. SAVEMART HORNBY
Still can’t find that piece you’re after then defos check this place. Pretty phat but not as big as old mate Sydenham. 4 stars. 94 Shands Road.

4. THE SALVATION ARMY FAMILY STORE
This one is your local. Ever need a quick fix? Shoot on down to church corner. Small but killa. Reasonably priced and hosts a good range of garments. 4 stars. 355c Riccarton Road.


5. ECO STORE
If you’re after more than just cloth and garments then look no further that the trusty eco store. Always has sales on all sorts. Boasts a large inventory. 5 stars. 191 Blenheim Road.

OpSoc Charity Art Auction 2017

Ever wanted to be an artist?  1Me neither, but whether you do or not this is a bloodygood event. Come along to this OpSoc-formal art gig and throw down your hard earned course related costs on some ripper works created by a handful of your mates (every cent goes to charity!), have a refreshment or two and skitz out to the musical talents afterwards. The art sells for anything between 20 and 420 bucks, depicting all sorts of real life heroes ranging from one and only Lucha Libre Donald Trump to a cucumber in a jimmy hat. Last year we raised over $1000 for KidsCan and we hope to frickin’ DOUBLE that this time round (or whatever we get I’m sure it’ll be fine). Not a night to be missed.
