Not only could I use my bags and save on packaging but also;
1) The women in the shop were really nice and we had a bit of a chat which is a rarity in retail these days
2) So many products available in bulk
3) My favourite toothpaste in stock
4) BULK TOFU!
5) Lots of things produced locally including bread and honey
6) Unpackaged palm oil free soap
7) An excuse to go to Manly, which is a place I love anyway
8) They emailed my receipt!
Happy as a bird.
