Thrift store finds: Hammer time
London has THE best vintage shopping. During my first month here, I found out about the Pop Brixton Vintage Kilo Sale. The sale is essentially a warehouse full of vintage goodies and your purchase is priced based on the total weight (15 GBP per Kilo). For my Americans, that's about $20 for 2lbs of clothing.
Two pounds may not seem like much, but I bought these awesome trousers and a few other lighter items for 15GBP. I would not recommend buying heavier items there, but overall it's a solid deal.
Any option that gives clothing a second life is good in my book.
