In case you haven’t noticed, thrift stores are making their way into the fashion world here in Ghana. If you are a shopaholic but your money is on the shaky side, you got champagne taste with beer money? WELL, thou shall not fear, the thrift stores are here.
WHAT IS A THRIFT STORE?
A store/boutique that sells used clothing (and other items) for dirt cheap. Contrary to popular belief, thrift stores are not necessarily nasty or strictly for poor people. It’s also for vintage lovers and those who like to bargain shop.
It is similar to a second hand store but thrift stores are fairly cheaper and the items are usually vintage inspired pieces. And when we say vintage, we mean clothing from the previous years, like the 60’s etc. We all know fashion has a habit of repeating itself. An example is the palazzao pants or the bell bottoms, those trends were from the 60’s and 70’s, but they are back and taking over this season trends.
We have researched on some thrift online stores in Ghana who showcase their pieces on IG. Most of the stores accept mobile money and provide delivery at a small price. Because the items are one of a kind pieces, once it’s sold out, there isn’t any restocking. So if you are the type of person who hates to see others in the same outfit as you, then thrifting is for you.
Here is the list of online thrift stores you can shop on IG
We are sure there are more stores, but don’t worry, we will be updating this list frequently. You can thank us later.
