SOMEONE'S trash will become someone else's treasure in Emerton this Saturday.

The search is on to find the best bargains at Washed Up Treasure's two opportunity shops, where a bargain hunt will be held to coincide with National Op Shop Week, from August 24 to 31.

Shoppers who find a "free" sticker on any item they find can have it for free.

"It could be anything in either store, including furniture," manager Jenny Szymkow said.

There will also be hourly giveaways, half-price books, shoes and bags, face painting and pirate hat making for the kids.

Spend $20 in either store to get a free sausage sandwich with a cold drink or cappuccino.

There's free delivery to the local area on any furniture items paid in full, usually $20. Everything is donated by the community.

Washed Up Treasure moved to Emerton 14 years ago when it outgrew the original space at Women's Activities and Self Help (WASH) House in Mount Druitt.

"If we had a store as big as Kmart, we would fill it," Ms Szymkow said. "We have some designer name outfits worth $700, recently donated by a well-known Australian who visited the area. All we can say about her is that she's a national living treasure."

Proceeds support the WASH House's case management, counselling and activity groups.
