Loving Thrifting

Updated: Sep 19, 2020

These days you don’t need branded items to look good, all you need is a little bit of cash and the drive to hunt for new outfits. By now you might already know what I’m talking about and yes, it's thrifting. Thrifting to me is like a playground that sells second-hand items at very low prices. A place where I don’t hold back, and just play around with the different styles that are there for me to try. In this article, I’m going to be giving you guys my personal favorite thrift stores that might suit your style preference.

The first place I’m suggesting was one that got me into thrifting, and that would be “OKGO Store” located in Subang SS18. What makes this thrift store different from the rest, would be the fact that the owners are able to curate the thrifted items. They consistently have new clothes coming in every month and not only that, they sell at very affordable prices. Not to mention, their items come from either Japan or America. I would say that their target audience would be the youth as they sell hockey jerseys, blazers, work jackets, ‘Champion’ (the brand), and many other well-known brands. If you’re worried about cleanliness, they’ve got you covered because they always wash the items before putting them up for sale. The owners are really nice too, they make you feel welcomed so extra points for that.

Next, we have a Family Bundle or JBR Bundle. Both stores are similar in ways that they both have a variety of clothes, and both venues are equally hot and humid. Be ready to sweat as you tear through the many shelves of clothes to find hidden gems. On the bright side: They sell at unbelievably low prices in comparison with the other thrift stores out there. I mean, I bought a really cool flannel outfit for only RM5. WHAT?! Talk about a steal. JBR Bundle, the one specifically located at Damansara, offers many different style choices ranging from blazers to ‘Dickies’ (the brand) as well. Family bundle on the other hand, I would recommend going to their outlet in Ampang or Pasar Seni. These venues are where I bought a pair of cotton-made pants for RM15 and a vest for RM5. After reading this article, I wouldn’t be surprised if you find a branded item that goes for RM25 in one of these stores, just like how I’ve found a Versace sweater for RM50.

Trust me that there are more thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales going on, either in physical stores or through online platforms. With these suggestions, I really do hope that you guys will also find the fun in thrifting. Thrifting isn’t just about buying cheap items, but it can also be a fun activity to do with your friends and families. Remember, thrifting has no limit when it comes to the different styles that you want to go for, so take that leap of faith and good luck!
