Started by Cheow Sue-Jane, her elder sister and their parents, Tryftshop not only resell second-hand clothes, but they also donate a portion of their second-hand items to those in need. The family orders bags of unwanted clothing from a recycling centre in Japan, which gathers unwanted clothing discarded from Japanese households. They then sort the goods into four piles – commercially viable ones, good condition items for donation, damaged and stained pieces for upcycling, and trash such as underwear. Clothes from the first pile will be sold at @tryftshop on Instagram and at popup events.
Nothing beats the thrill of scoring that vintage tee or jacket at a thrift store. Here, we have listed down places where you can dig for that reworked jacket or dress. In addition to brick-and-mortar stores, social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook have truly made it easier to shop for second-hand items. From Nike sweatshirts to Y2K-inspired outfits and charming accessories, shop at these thrift stores that offer the best preloved vintage apparels and more.
