I absolutely love thrift, flea market, bargain hunting and second hand shopping. My proudest purchase was a Diane Von Furstenberg skirt I found 98% off at Nordstrom Rack, it was sold out at regular price of $498 at Barney’s. My first job was reselling and buying wholesale with my dad. There is no telling me anything different. One day I should do guide for the blog… but today I will tell you about my adventure to the thrift store in Bern!
Today I had to go to townhall (Gemeinde) and from the corner of my eye I saw what appeared to be a second hand shop. My heart skipped a beat. After taking care of business i wandered back looking for the direction I thought the bus passed. After wandering a bit because I have no sense of direction I found a second hand warehouse.
This is the first legit second hand store I have found in Switzerland. I went to a flea market a month ago and it smelled like pee and it was so dirty… I know you can find great things at flea markets and secondhand shops so I was really disappointed and thought that there was no chance of shopping how I love to since it soooo expensive here.
I was wrong!
Three items for $14.80!
made me want to skip down the street.
The best part about thrift shopping is you can find vintage or current styles so since I had already have a mental (wish)list of a few items I wanted for the summer I picked them up.
Neck Scarf -$2
Denim Jacket- $9
Off The Shoulder Blouse-$3 (not photographed)
More blog posts to come and I plan to shred and customize this jacket to be awesome. Maybe include #BiteMyFashion for a festival look!
Today I went all for the necktie look but to be honest I have been wearing bandanas and scarfs forever… so this is a trend I will be sticking to and the Thriftstore has tons for $2 so I can’t wait to pick up more for Paris next weekend!
I love buttoning the bottom of the jacket behind the back that creates a cool and relaxed look.
So, how do you feel about bargain and thrift shopping? Do you have the patience for it or no? I know a lot of people hate digging and fighting for the bargains but I love it. #ShoppingismyCardio
