So, I went to a thrift store last weekend. Here’s the thing… I’ve never been to a thrift store and well, frankly it wasn’t really a thrift store – it was just an event held by this vintage thrift store where everything was a £1. Let’s just say I was madly disappointed, especially since I went there with high expectations. We arrived at the venue and as expected there was so many people. Being a short person is a disadvantage in these sort of situations, but I battled through and we managed to get in in the end. They were only letting a few people in and out at a time, so as to control crowd flow but people kept squashing and trying to push in. It was like a riot.
We got inside expecting an actual building with clothes in it but inside it was an open yard and the clothes were just everywhere. Coupled with the fact that it rained and made the ground muddy, I was not pleased. There were piles of clothes everywhere and people stepping all over the place and barging and chucking things on the floor. I couldn’t stand it and my friends, sister and I basically paid a £1 for nothing.
Personally, I think most of the stuff in there was charity shop stuff and definitely not vintage, but who am I to tell. Also I think you have to have an acquired taste to wear those sort of clothes. It’s a shame we travelled all that way to end up with nothing and other people left with bags upon bags of clothes and even suitcases.
It wasn’t too much waste of day because we walked down to Brick Lane and ended up at Old Spitalfields Market. They have this really nice Caribbean stall selling the most gorgeous food I’ve ever had. My sister had mac and cheese and I had the curry mutton with white rice and salad. When I say it was spicy… I mean like nearly blew my head off spicy but it was soooo nice. Reminded me of my grandmas food 😀
I am officially at my new job as of last Thursday and so far it’s been pretty good. Granted there isn’t much to do because the product that company is making hasn’t launched yet but once that’s done I’m sure there’ll be loads to do. I went to my first PR meeting today and I swear I heard the word ‘niche’ like 2000 times in that one meeting. My hours are pretty decent and sometimes I even finish early, so I can’t really complain about anything. The offices that we’re at are pretty cool – there’s always something music related going as well because it is a music studio.
I would love a whole new winter wardrobe complete with accessories. I wuv you, Jesus, amen.
