Tip Shops a top spot

The Tip Shop has a vast array of used items (and some new) that have made their way to the shop after being preloved.

Tip Shop supervisor Jodie Anderson said you could pretty much furnish a whole house from the tip shop.

“We’ve recently had a service from another town come to the Tip Shop in Broken Hill to buy goods to help furnish homes for women leaving domestic violence.”

The shop has shelves of glassware, dinner sets and kitchen appliances.

Ms Anderson said people also come from all over to visit the shop.


“We’ve had Canadians, Germans, Americans and English drop by hoping to find a special treasure or odd keepsake,” she said.

Grey Nomads also seem to be spreading the word with locals being asked how to get to the Tip Shop when they visit town explained Ms Anderson.

“We think the word seems to get around the caravan parks and, when they come to town, they include visiting us, which is great,” she said.

She explained that Lifeline is super grateful for the donations that come in every day.

Ms Anderson added, “We are very thankful for all the work volunteers do. Without them we couldn’t run the Tip Shop.”
