    babes... which salvation army thrift store do you head to? is the one at upper serangoon any good?

      yo, i frequent the upper sgn one coz it's near my place. it's fairly good! i've picked up lotsa great buys there. which ones have u been to? my friend says the bukit timah one is well-stocked with really cool things. it's probably to cater to the rich folks living there who want a bargain once in a while? lol

      i was at the little india one yesterday and they have such great stuff! i'm heading back there today to pay for my reserved things.. and maybe find more vintage togs coz i had pressed for time yesterday. will post pics of my finds later! = )

      thrifting has made me wean off mango and zara

        Good place for bargain hunters or anyone who has no qualms for used stuff and anyone with eagle sharpness in digging that treasure from heaps and piles of items. I think can even find stuff still brand new with tags. Clothes aside, they do have furniture, household products, retro display, shoes, bags etc. All you need is lotsa luck and patience.

        Have fun !

              Metta, I'm sure you are already familiar with those Salvation Army thrift stores. Those for the benefits of other cotters. =)

              You know Albert / Queen's Street area? near God of Mercy temple and OG Bugis => Cheng Yan Place.

              There's a complex that house a food centre and wet market on the ground floor, dried foodstuff and shampoo shops on the 2nd, and on the 3rd floor, some of the shops sell used jeans and tees. I used to frequent there during my tertiary days. There's also a shop at a corner that make bags out of denim fabric.

                      the girls stuff is rite inside... and apparently everyday they have new stuff... its so packed with clothes inside you will have to have the patience to search through all to find 1 or 2 items you like...
