Top Instagram Thrift Stores in India
This pandemic has made us recognize many things that were neglected even though they were in plain sight. No, we are not being philosophical. We are talking about thrift stores that were around us all this while and it’s surprising that in a day and age of ‘being woke’ we almost missed sustainable fashion.
“But what does a pandemic have to do with thrift stores?” This pandemic gave everyone an opportunity for independent small businesses to carry out working remotely. That gave rise to many small shops on Instagram and thrift stores are snowballing each day. Believe it or not, but there has now birthed a new community of thrifters on Instagram and we are here for it.
But how do these thrift stores work?
Thrifting or thrift shopping means buying second-hand clothes from thrift stores or from flea markets, or even from someone you know for that matter. If you have ever bought anything from Sarojini or Link Road, then you have probably ended up with second-hand or thrift clothes already.
The thrift stores on Instagram are either selling their own personal old clothes or they are sourcing clothes from thrift sellers and making them available for people on the internet. The process is simple. They put up the images, sizes, and prices for you to check. Since these are thrift stores, they usually have only one product in one size. But now that there are so many thrift stores on Instagram, there is always a chance that what you cannot find at one store, you can find it at another.
We have curated a list of the top Instagram thrift stores in India for you to shop from. The list is diverse, suitable for both men and women, and hence, we believe there’s something for everyone here.
