Whenever someone admires something I’m wearing I often proudly say, ‘I bought it from the op shop’. I realised recently that I was doing this as if ‘the op shop’ is the only one in the world.
What is The Op Shop? It’s all the op shops I go to and buy things from. It’s not the St Vinnies at such and such, or the Salvos down the road, or the this or the that.
The op shop is the collective term for all op shops. And it’s not just me. I’ve heard other people say it too.
What do you say? Are you a ‘The Op Shop’ person?
I did a search on the term and found this quite amusing video.
