When I got to Salvation Army Praise Haven I was so engrossed with searching for items that I forgot to take pics. I picked 3 dresses, though all of them don't seem to be considered vintage. They are probably from early 90s to around 80s? 1 black dress with a interesting open back and translucent pleats. 1 black dress with small circle prints. 1 brown dress of a tweed like material. It costs me a total of S$24. The dresses were originally S$10 each, but there was a store wide 20% sale! WEEE!!! ( They all look quite duh when pictured alone...so will post their individual pics when I wear them!)
I was rather dissapointed that I could not find any nice bags. I actually saw a cute tapestry bag, but it was not the size I wanted, what a pity.
Next, I went to a flea market! It is situated outside Tanglin Mall and is held only twice a month. It's my first time there. There were many stalls selling clothes, but they were all strewn on the floor in huge piles and people were just digging in. My knee is not in a shape where I could kneel and squat comfortably so it was difficult to look. But non the less I found a cute straw pouch for S$1! I think with a nice broach pinned on it would look terrific as a clucth!
Perhaps for my next thrifting trip I should task myself with a budget to get an outfit like what Sally Jane Vintage does! That would be so fun! How I wish though that Singapore thrift shops have more treasures like those in the states. Sally Jane Vintage manages to find such beautiful items and even vintage coach bags! Would I be so lucky the next time?
