Back from Japan. First day thrifting in two weeks. Seriously an addiction, I was having withdrawals. Today definitely fed the craving even though I found nothing. Oh well.
I only saw two thrift stores while in Japan and the two I saw were in the Chiba prefixture, so not near the big city area like Shinjuku where we were staying. Unfortunately I saw them from the train going 60+ MPH. No chance to stop. I did manage to find a consignment/resale shop to swing into, Nothing like the consignment shops here at all. Chock full of amazing stuff, many labels I've seen for the first time in person. No junk at all. Pictured is just a tiny sampling of what they had. Didn't have time to look too long as I was on the way to meet a old school friend and didn't want to be late so there was likely some insane stuff I didn't even see. Prices were up there but definitely cheaper than retail. A decent amount of NWT stuff too. Prices were about 70-80% of retail. Tiny sizes though, nothing came close to fitting me. Women's section was about 1/2 of the men's section! So different than the US!
Not really a find, but I thought some of you may like to see what a consignment shop on the other side of the world has to offer. Thrift/discount related, but I will spoiler the photos. Click if you want to check them out.
