If you have never done thrift shopping, you should give it a try. It’s like treasure hunting, except that everything is dirt-cheap.
Ever since I visited Praisehaven Mega Family Thrift Store, I have fallen in love with thrift shopping.
I wanted to try out other thrift shops and many netizens have commented that New2U Thrift Shop is one of the best thrift shops in Singapore. However, its operating hours of 10.30am a 2.30pm is really not office-worker-friendly.
The good thing is there is an online store where volunteers regularly update with new listings. Some listing even include pit-to-pit, length and waist measurements.
New2U thrift store is opened by Singapore Council of Women’s Organizations and it is run by volunteers. It is located on Waterloo Street, a short walking distance from Bencoolen MRT station.
I thought Praisehaven Mega Family Store already have quite a sizable collection of clothes and apparel, but New2U has much more.
There is this huge amount room filled with racks and racks of women’s clothes (there is a smaller collection of men’s clothes). Shoes and bags pile on tabletops, suitcases and accessories are in the middle of the room. Racks after racks of shoes and clothes line the corridors.
There is also another smaller room is filled with household items, books and toys.
There is just one problem, there are no changing rooms to try the clothes on. Even though the clothes are super cheap, I still want to try them on and make sure they fit before I buy them.
