Thrift stores on Instagram are all the rage! There are more than 20 Ghanaian thrift stores selling affordable fashion pieces which is much needed in this economy. These shops are making quite a bundle from scouring Accra Central for unique fashion pieces to posting them on Instagram at attention-grabbing prices. Thrift stores/shops sell first selection / second-hand/pre-loved clothing and fashion accessories which are still in the trends or like in some cases a bit vintage which makes it all the more attractive.
As a shopper you just pay for your shopped items *but be quick about it* via mobile money and the item(s) will be delivered to you.
These are a select few of thrift stores you can trust for quality, style and friendly prices.
Vintage By Blema
This thrift store is perhaps the best so far in terms of distinctiveness of the shop’s Instagram feed. Women’s clothes are well displayed with prices attached so you don’t have to ask ‘how much pls’. Owned by Lalita, Vintage By Blema is soon going to be your personal favourite thrift store. Once in a while, sunglasses and some accessories pops up. Just put on the notifications for this account because they run out quick! Each post is updated the minute the item gets sold.
