The Garage Sale

Lyttelton's Op Shop

Open 10 am-4.00 pm Wednesday to Friday 10.00 am-1.00 pm Saturday

54 Oxford Street, Lyttelton - up the driveway beside the swimming pool

Yes, we are a shop

The Garage Sale is a community “Op Shop” run on the power of volunteers as a social enterprise.

Garage Sale supports other Project Lyttelton projects, and on Saturdays raises funds for local community groups.


We aim to recycle and reuse our community’s surplus goods to reduce the amount that would otherwise go to landfill. Groups such as the 'Lyttel Sew & Sews' also upcycle and repurpose textiles as a way of reducing our collective waste.

We aim to provide a welcoming, caring environment for our volunteers and customers to meet up and chat.

New volunteers are always welcome - please contact us on (03) 328 9243.


The Lyttel Sew & Sews

Every Tuesday at 10.30am at Portal, Oxford Street above The Garage Sale.


Volunteers repair/up-cycle donated clothing items that might otherwise go to landfill.  Everyone welcome – just turn up!


A great opportunity to chat, share skills, or learn new ones and be part of helping support the planet!
