Thrift shopping is gradually being accepted by a good number of people in Nigeria. It may not yet be a household activity, but it is good to know that it is becoming more in vogue. It is no news that thrifting the typical Nigerian way (bend down select) can be exhausting and it might sometimes take forever to find pieces you love. Also, if you have been to any market in Nigeria, you will know that there is no way you could have a pleasant shopping experience with traditional thrifting.
And that’s where Thrift Projects comes in. Thrift Projects is a community-oriented platform which focuses on bringing a different shopping experience to Nigeria. They seek to change the perception of thrift shopping in Nigeria and use conversation and experiences as tools to drive people to actually think about how they shop.
Just imagine a thrift store that doubles as an exhibition; No cluttered racks, no piles to dig through, just a selection of stylish items coupled with good music, a well-designed space, and an ambience that makes you want to indulge.
On the 10th of December, they are bringing this experience to life with The Pop Up Experience, a shopping day designed to exhibit and sell a carefully curated selection of pre-owned items, and also celebrate style as a medium of self-expression while you shop previously-loved and brand new stylish pieces at unbelievably affordable prices. It. will. be. LIT! You’ll definitely want to be a part of this!
Entry is free so you don’t want to play yourself!
