Who doesn’t love thrifting? Not only is it sustainable and inclusive of all styles and sizes, but you may also come across archive vintage designer pieces that you can no longer find anywhere else—for a fraction of their original price too! Ahead, we’ve rounded up nine curated thrift stores to scavenge timeless pre-loved items and give them a new home.

Opening its doors just earlier this year, Looop offers a wide variety of quality vintage finds that reminisces the ’90s. Think digging through your mum’s retro closet, but in a store.

Opening hours: Wednesday – Friday, 2pm to 9pm | Saturday – Sunday, 12pm to 7pm

It’s safe to say that OKGO is one of the OG curated thrift stores that every thrifter has been to at least once, be it their previous location at USJ19 mall or their current location at SS18. Launched in 2017, OKGO’s inventory ranges anywhere from vintage graphic tees to varsity jackets to retro home goods and more. The best part? Prices aren’t marked up to unreasonable numbers, even for designer pieces!

Opening hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 12pm to 7pm | Saturday – Sunday, 11am to 7pm | Closed every Tuesday

Address: 17A 1st Floor, Jalan SS 18/1b, 47500 Subang Jaya

 

 

3. Show Your Pink

While you can shop in-store, you’ll often find Show Your Pink at various thrift markets in the city. In fact, we happened to discover them at one of their pop-ups at RexKL, where we fetched a sublime pleated shirt by Issey Miyake (you’ll be thrilled to know that Issey Miyake is a reoccurring brand in their inventory!) With every drop, you will find some of the best vintage designers including Marc Jacobs, Dior, Hugo, and more.

Opening hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and weekends, 12pm to 7pm | Closed every Tuesday

Address: 10B, Jalan SS4D/14, Taman Mayang, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
