3R were proud sponsors of the Redefine – love your op shop event held at East Pier this last weekend.

I was one of seven judges that judged all the categories. The overall level of entries were very impressive. The time and effort that some people applied was outstanding.

The winner of the “Surprise Us”, section which 3R sponsored was a necklace made from old jig-saw pieces,

Next year they are planning to hold the event again, but on a National level, so put your thinking cap on!
