Thrift shopping in Nigeria
I know some people are already wondering what thrift shopping means? Well it is a dignified name for what we all know as “bend down select, Okrika or second-hand”.
Thrift shopping basically mean careful shopping, budget friendly shopping.
So even if you don’t buy second-hand items But wait till an outfit goes on sale before you purchase, you are thrift shopping.
Thrift shopping is one of the best ways to shop on a budget and really I believe at some point we all have thrift shopped for things.
See what I found
I didn’t have to go to any market to get these as I found them in a thrift store around my school area.
Apparently I even found them late as my friend fortune had already bought lots of eye-catching shoes and bags from them.
Well on that day we got to the store, waited for about 2 hours for her new goods to arrive, afterwards we picked what we liked, it was all fun until it came down to paying for what we purchased.
My friend told me you can pay with their POS But it wasn’t until we were done shopping and haggling prices, the woman told us she wasn’t using her pos as it was a weekend and she wouldn’t get the money till Monday.
After so much talks and convincing for her to let us do mobile transfer, she agreed and we paid.
This was actually my first time thrifting bags. It is usually clothes that are mostly everywhere.
Thrift shopping in Nigeria is very common and if you have great thrift skills, you will always find good stuff.
Yes, I bought them all same day, same place for the most ridiculous prices!
