F A S H I O N
1. Thrift Shopping
Thrift shopping from flea markets and secondhand shops is a great way to snag some budget buys while reducing waste at the same time. These three thrift spots will have you sorted:
JBR Bundle: Who doesn’t love thrift shopping? With three outlets in Bandar Sri Damansara, Hulu Langat and Shah Alam, it’s easy to find unique pieces here as the clothes are neatly separated into sections. If you’re looking for a pair of oversized cargo pants in a wide range of colours that’ll match your logo tee, this is where you need to be! PS Everything sold here is below RM35.
Jalan Raga Bot Considered a hidden gem, this place offers stylish pieces for as low as RM1 and is where many fashionistas hunt for second-hand items. Spend some time exploring the streets of Chow Kit and bargain your way through cos this is where you’ll be able to find trendy jumpsuits, graphic tees and other streetwear pieces for a steal!
Amcorp Mall Flea Market Nothing beats spending your weekend at the flea market hunting for unique pieces that define your personality. This particular one has been around since the late ’90s and is where you’ll be able to get vintage framed accessories, an eclectic mix of jewels and even military jackets if you’re going for the utilitarian look!

2. Make Your Own:
ID Holder How cool will it be to flaunt an ID holder that you’ve assembled yourself ? Known for its leather craft-making workshops, Coralc Atelier is selling personalised DIY kits that are priced at RM98. The card holders are available in various colours; from red to purple and pastel hues, and you’ll also get to pick the colour of the thread of your choice! Plus, there’s free foil embossing available too.
Tote Bag Want to encourage your friend or yourself to go green? Instead of saying yes to carrying around a paper bag every time you go shopping, why not invest in this personalised tote bag? Using a printed canvas, all you’d need to do is pick out your favourite colours and come up with your own design. The price of a blank canvas bag is RM20 and you can top up another RM20 for any five colour palettes.
