Think you can’t get classic jackets to vintage dresses for as low as RM5? Well, you can! Shopping in thrift shops (also known as bundle shops or charity shops in Malaysia) can pretty exciting; it’s almost like going on a mini treasure hunt, you won’t know what you’ll discover. After giving the clothes a good wash and ironing, most of the time the outfits might look better on you than it does on the hanger! So go crazy, experiment with clothes; put different things together. After all it’s a thrift shop, you don’t have to worry about overspending.
