I love thrifting! As in I super do! I love this article. I hope it opens the minds of other people that thrifting ain't really a gross job, if after all those digging, you'll be able to find a really nice piece :) I particularly love your last line :D Well writen.

maybe in indonesia it is like that, but in the philippines, although most of my friends don't like that i go to thrift stores, but for me I love it, first of all it is cheap and lastly, I find one-of-a-kind pieces, but it is true that it looks like that, cramped and stuff :)

omg it do sound risky but if that's the place where you find your great clothes sabrina, than it's really worth it! i think here in europe thrifting it's much more a "flair-job". at least speaking about weekend flea markets. second-hand shops are in certain cities (milan for example) almost more expensive then normal shops because sellers know vintage-pieces are a trend, unfortunately

The sellers here too are learning too about trends. They even know the word "vintage" and "high waist", quite amazing really..... ;p
