Currently listening to Khalid | Young dumb and broke.One of the questions I get asked the most has to ‘where do you thrift shop’ and to be honest, I’ve never really paid attention to the locations in which I get most of the things I buy as I’m mostly always on the go but in today’s post I’ve tried to list a few places I can remember…

Yaba Market : I get most of my items from here, you just have to be prepared walk around and not be pressurized into buying what you do not need by the numerous roaming vendors there. Favorite place for everything.

Ojuelegba : Under the bridge here is my go to location for my infamous vogue magazines that some how always feature in my flatlays. Favorite place for magazines and books.

Cele Bus Stop : Under the bridge at Cele one of my favorite spots especially on nights I’m out late as they start selling late in the evening. Favorite place for shoes and custom jewelry.

Obalende Bus Stop : You can find really nice pieces here too but I hardly ever shop here because I’m only here for a few mins and I always like to take my time to look through items. Favorite place for bags.

Ikeja Along : I was here yesterday evening and I found out that there are people retailing really amazing items just along the rail tracks, I was almost going to get a certain pink blouse but I was in such a hurry. I can’t wait to go there again but I know for sure that you can find really interesting books at a good price there. 

Around You : Yes around you!!! You know that shop with a heap of clothes and homewares at the corner in your hood? Walk in and I bet you’d be blown away by the amazing pieces you’d find. Favorite place for finding gems.

I really hope this answers your question and I’d be sure to leave names of other locations that I find. Bear it in mind that there are only a few thrift shops in Lagos so you have to be ready to ‘bend down and select’. One of my favorite ways to de stress after a long week is to shop and if you’re like me I hope you find this post helpful enough.

Love always…

Where do you thrift shop? Did you find this post any helpful? Kindly share your thoughts with me by leaving a comment below, thanks.



  1. There’s a place call super,before abulegba.market days are on Mondays,Wednesday and Fridays..you should check the place..they have varieties. ..


  2. Wow!! I’ve been passing ojuelegba under bridge and it never occurred to me. I’ve gotten some things around Ikeja around, I just dont like when all those people start their “Eys eys fine girl” wahala. But yh!! Yaba is bae!!!! Whenever im in lagos from school I usually go there to get nice jeans and thwy have really nice materials you can get for a less price. Their prices are lit asf, budget friendly😊 Obalende too, I got some glasses from there at a really cool price.
    I enjoyed this post, im for sure going to pay more attention to ojuelegba under bridge now. 👏👏💕💕💕



  3. Yaba is the truth!! NEVER bought any clothing more than 800 Naira. So sad that I cannot find the 50 Naira sellers anymore.
    Ojuelegba is a major gold mine for books and magazines, old and new. I recently got a Time Magazine Double Edition from 1996 at 50 Naira and a 2017 Vogue at 400 Naira, and they are very ‘clean’ too.
    I should try Cele too. There are also some thrift sellers in Balogun Market.
    Thanks for sharing Miss Sunflower!


  4. Thanks for sharing, I can’t wait to visit Lagos and go checkout some of this places mentioned especially for books and magazines.
