Shop of Opportunities
At ‘Fernlea Shop of Opportunities’ you can have a great time shopping and find a bargain. We have such great
stock, it’s not unusual to find that special item you’ve been looking for. And we have new stock several times
Staffed by a friendly team of volunteers, the store offers second-hand, low-cost quality goods including clothing, kitchenware, furniture, books and bric-a-brac.
At Fernlea we care about the environment – recycling clothes, books, bric-a-brac and other pre-loved items has
many environmental benefits, including reducing landfill and greenhouse gas emissions. Promoting re-use and offering an alternative to a throwaway culture helps to create a sustainable future.
Plus, all profits from the sale of goods stay in the local community and support our community services for
people with a life-limiting illness.
Our shop is located at 15 Kilvington Drive, Emerald.
