Op shop assistant Angela Skordalis creates bargain bridal bonanza in central west NSW


Roughly 18 months ago, Dubbo-based homelessness service, Orana Support, was looking for an opportunity shop site.

Tina Reynolds, the charity’s chief executive, jumped at the opportunity when a shop in Wellington in central west New South Wales became available for sale; the building originally housed the town’s formal wear business, and the bricks and mortar acquisition came with a catch, the dresses were included in the deal.

Orana Support’s Angela Skordalis helps deliver the dresses to interested buyers, hoping to soon wear the bargain dress at their own wedding.

Ms Skordalis told ABC News that shoppers can’t believe the deals they are finding on the dresses.

“As soon as [shoppers] see the wedding dresses, they’re just flabbergasted,” Ms Skordalis said.

“A lot of our dresses are the best quality… Most of them are brand-new, but for a much better price.”
