The Heritage of Fashion: Alles Vintage Shop x The Thrift Collection

In light of the heritage week I thought I should share about the new collaboration of two vintage shops that took place last weekend. Alles Vintage and Second Hand Shop, is a shop established in 2013 owned by the ever so beautiful Ms Caron who collects vintage items from furniture, house decor to clothes and bags. Caron has items aging all the back to the 60s with some of the items which are hardly used in this age but come as elegant antique items in one's house. I now present to you the young and stylish Ms. Emily Eales who's the founder of The Thrift Collection. Emily has had her shop for nearly two years now, yet it had been online based for all that time with the exception of the days when she sells at the iHeart Market (which I have spoke about before). Emily says "The Thrift Collection is a thrifted and vintage clothing store which is known for quality clothing and affordable prices." 

On Saturday the 21st of September both these two shops hosted us for the opening as a collaboration. And God was the clothing breathtaking, I myself as a self-confessed accessory head I was humbled by the beautiful accessories I saw there. The people were buying in bucket loads (Yass that's how affordable things are there). Literally every 15 minutes someone casually walked in with no intention to buy anything but walked out asking for assistance with holding the amount of items they had bought. 

So boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen anytime you want any item priced so reasonably that you can buy tons of it Alles x The Thrift Collection is your place.

You can find these ladies in Glenwood, on 67 Davenport Road in Durban. You can also call them at 031 201 6855. Emily: 083 277 9749, Twitter : @TheThriftCo
