Chicago Thrift Store | Kyoto, Japan

One of my favorite things to do is go thrift store shopping. I've been thrifting way before Macklemore made it popular. Ever since I can remember, my mom and I would spend Saturday mornings scouring thrift stores for little treasures. It's something that I've always done and continue to do to this day. Most of the things I own are from thrift stores. I love one of a kind things and especially when they are at a low cost. When we travel abroad, I always look for secondhand shops.

Japan is one of the best countries for this. They've really embraced the culture and there are heaps of thrift stores. When we were Kyoto we randomly found Chicago Thrift Store, which also has a location in Tokyo. When I saw it, it was like destiny and we immediately went in. Everything was really awesome and there was ton to choose from. The prices were really reasonable and affordable. I wanted to buy everything, but I controlled myself. I ended up buying on really amazing dress and a super sweet shirt for Markus. Overall it was a great experience and if you're ever in Kyoto, make sure to check it out for sweet vintage finds!
