great holiday with fabulous thrifting adventures

Hope it is not too late to wish "Kong Hei Fat Choy" or "Gong Xi Fa Chai" to those who are celebrating the festivity! I had a good break in Ipoh for Chinese New Year celebration. Besides good, yummy and cheap food in Ipoh, what I have enjoyed the most during this trip is hitting to every thrifting spots.

The year of the dragon treats me well so far. I have some luck during my thrifting adventures around Ipoh...

I purchased this adorable navy-ish hat from Pemasaran Baru Harapan / New Hope Marketing for less than RM5! Can you believe it? Good investment as props for photo shoot or just a decoration in my room, don't you think?

I heard of Gerbang Malam for the past few months but I never really actually made any effort to check it out. But during this trip, I thought, why not? Glad that I made such decision.

Great thrift and/or vintage finds at affordable price! Purchased these pieces from a bundle stall.

Salvation's Army Thrift Store is on my to-visit list. Sometimes, I may not have any luck but not for this round. I purchased a lovely purse and cute bow tie (for DIY purposes).

Do you remember the bundle store that I mentioned in my post last year? At first, all I wanted to do was to check out the stock, to see any interesting piece and never thought I would purchase an item there.

And last but not least, Memory Lane is a must-check-out place for vintage lovers. I stumbled upon this lovely beaded tapestry bag. What a lovely piece even its chain is lost. I can still use it as a clutch. I reckon the bag is from circa 1950s to 1960s.

During this trip, I took the opportunity to sight seeing in my own hometown. Went on heritage trails in Ipoh. Stay tuned for posts on heritage trails! Have a good week ahead everyone.
