So… it seems you didn’t have much to say about clothing stores in your East African city, or maybe you just couldn’t settle on a favorite one.
Given that most women (at the very least) enjoy shopping, this should have come as a bit of a surprise to me.
Frankly, I wasn’t very surprised though.
If you my readers are anything like most of the East African residents that I know in person, then…well, you don’t really do most of your clothes shopping in stores locally.
Am I right?
Like some people I know, you might wait for your trips abroad to do the bulk of your shopping.
Or…maybe you buy your clothes from someone who runs an informal clothing business, possibly one that they operate from home.
Or…and I am sure I’m going to out a lot of us with this next one…you shop at one of the many secondhand markets or clothing retailers so common in our region, but given your eye for quality and style, no one would be able to tell!
Hehehe…don’t get me wrong; I understand: the only thing better than looking sharp is doing so without breaking the bank. Which is why, today, I would like to know…
Question #10: In your East African town/city, what’s the best bargain or vintage shopping place?
To be honest, I know very little about vintage shopping, so I won’t attempt to answer that part of today’s question. (Just as I am not into oldies or classic movies, I am also not into looking to the past for style inspiration. Why do people feel the need to glorify the past?!)
Bargain shopping, on the other hand, is right down my alley!
My red plaid Tommy Hilfiger miniskirt that I bought for 400 Kenyan shillings (~US$5)?
Now, that’s what I am talking about!
And now, I’d like to hear from you. To share your answer to today’s question, leave me a comment below in the following format:

As always, I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
Until the next time,
