I love thrifting because it’s an opportunity to get new additions to your wardrobe at an affordable price. I often find very nice items that become staples in my Gothic wardrobe.
Unfortunately in South Africa there aren’t many thrift stores and the ones we do have don’t have a large variety of clothing. This weekend I was so excited that there were TWO thrift fairs happening, organised by different people. I went with my friend from Clarens, who is visiting Pretoria for a while!
I got some really awesome things from both of them, so here are the things I got! Sorry for the poor quality photos. It’s very dark in my apartment and raining outside, so this is the best I could do.
The Harvest Thrift Fair at +27 Cafe – Saturday 23rd July
And my favourite find for the day…
The Thrift Fair at Fort Schanskop, Voortrekker Monument – Sunday 24th July
This one did not feature different sellers. Instead, they had all the items together in a hall on railings, tables and other displays. I found that the prices here were much more reasonable in general. Here’s what I got!
I also got this dress that I will be using for a shoot! As you can see, I have started removing the golden flower pattern so that the dress is more to my liking (I’m not a fan of gold). I haven’t decided exactly what I am going to shoot with this yet, but it will be something awesome 😉
I’m also currently selling some of my clothes here, if you are interested!
Thanks for reading!
