THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN GOING THRIFT SHOPPING
- When going on a thrift shopping spree, don’t dress expensive, most especially when you are going for the first time and you are going alone
- When you see something you like, don’t carry it on your face, don’t let the person selling know you like what you see, just give a plain/blank expression
- When you go thrift shopping, you see those clothes they hang don’t move close to them if you don’t know how to bargain because if you do they will call an outrageous price for you
- When you ask for the price of a cloth, cut the price into 2 immediately, the seller will give you a lesser price then you decide if you want it or not
- When you go thrift shopping and you see something you really like and your money isn’t enough, don’t let the seller know just bargain to the money with you and if the person is still contemplating just give the person the money with you, the person will surely sell because those people don’t return money (let it be a reasonable amount tho)
- The best time to go thrift shopping for me is either early in the morning or late in the evening because during those times clothes are super affordable. They wouldn’t want to go back with a lot of clothes in the evening and in the morning they are still sorting their goods and they haven’t fixed price yet
- The more you buy, the lesser the price

HOW TO CUT PRICE WHEN THRIFT SHOPPING
- If the person selling calls a top for you #400 each.. Say ahh.. The person will probably tell you to pay #300 last price, then you’ll say #200, pretend you are going, the person selling will agree after being reluctant for a while, the seller will call you back.. Then you pick 3 nice tops and pay #500, just make sure you have change
- When they call a jean trouser for you within the range of #1000-#2000, just smile and pretend to walk away, the person selling will cut the price, then you decide whether to pay 500 or 700 depending on the quality of the jean

Stiletto heels for #200 at Aswani Market
You can get tops from as low as #10, jeans skirt from as low as #30, you might get lucky as see what you like but i haven’t been lucky, i have never seen something i like and i know someone who bought a new top for #10 and she rocked it on her birthday..
It all depends on your luck
The least amount i have paid for a top is #30 and it was at Aswani Market, the least amount i have paid for a jean trouser is #500, while the least amount i have paid for a skirt is #500 and it was at Mushin Market
You can also get bags from as low as #100 even shoes that are of good quality. I have a small leather bag i bought for #100 at Aswani Market, only God knows where those people buy their goods from..
White Skirt for #500 at Mushin Market
Aswani Market is just like a normal market where you get everything at an affordable price unlike the normal markets, it is not only for thrift shopping and it is located along the mile 2 oshodi road they open only on Tuesdays
It’s that time of the year where you get new clothes at a thrifted price because it towards the end of the year, a lot of company are doing clearance sales, you get a new cloth exactly the price of a thrifted clothes
