A GUIDE TO THE BEST SECOND-HAND MARKETS: BRISBANE
Monday, 11 July 2016
001. In a follow up post to my "Guide to Ethical and Sustainable Shopping" I've decided to feature a few of my favourite second-hand fashion markets from around Brisbane. Definitely one thing I miss about living in the city is the endless options for finding funky pre-loved clothes. I hope this is helpful for you Brissie gals and inspires you to shop sustainably, BECAUSE IT'S SO DARN EASY AND AFFORDABLE!
What: pre-loved fashion, local designers/creators, food and drinks too!

What: second hand clothing and vintage pieces from local fashionistas wardrobes
