 this grungy little shop in Affleck's Arcade. Beginning life as a vintage store, the Thrifty ladies now stock handmade tie-dye tees (AND SOCKS..!), velvet circle skirts and holographic crop tops. I also  the ladies that run the shop too, you can check out Lucie's blog here; a healthy dose of white hair, Evil Twin and Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes are totally on point for the Thriftette brand.

On a busy Saturday Chris and I popped in to pick up a Yin Yang tee and play a game of Mario Kart on the Ettes' Nintendo 64. I was Princess Peach, he was Yoshi. He won, this time at least. We'll be back in soon for a rematch.. and also to pick up a special request of men's tie dye socks!

  6. This shop looks awesome, how has it escaped my notice?? Cannot wait to see the tie dye socks!

  7. I love those shops which not only sell cool clothes, but have a nice layout, aesthetic, interior design, etc.
    Mario Kart is the besssst. Those good old N64 days! I always played Yoshi too. It's so funny getting used to modern graphics then going back to games like Ocarina of Time and the original Super Smash Bros and realising how far graphics have come.
    Drop by!
