What you'll do

We will go to 2 of my top 3 picks of secondhand shops. I will customize my pick according to the group's interest. During the shopping time, I will give explanations about what to expect, how to get the best deals and any form of shopping assistance you need.

1. Green Ladies - Wanchai Branch ($$)
An affordable consignment shop that champions sustainability by reusing secondhand clothes. The shop is very neat, curated, and everything is clean and in great condition. Bonus, very friendly aunties will assist you in the shop.

2. Midwest Vintage - Tin Hau ($$$)
It's Vintage Levi's HEAVEN. If you are looking for authentic Americana fashion, this one is for you! Everything is vintage pieces from USA. You can even get lost in the stories of each piece.

3. Mee & Gee - TST or Central branch ($)
My personal favorite. Mee & Gee source their items from Japan and Korea, so you will find eclectic retro pieces (a lot of shoulder pads), uniforms, and racer onesies. Price starts at 5HKD (less than $1!). If you dig well, you might be lucky enough to score designer pieces for ridiculously cheap price.

Hi, I'm TJ. I moved to Hong Kong last year for Postgrad studies, and for my final project about sustainable fashion, I dive deep into the amazing world of secondhand shopping in Hong Kong.

I researched (yes, all in the name of education) over 10 secondhand shops in HK over the last few months and found many amazing treasures tucked and hidden inside busy racks. Vintage Levi's, retro shirts, concert Tees, you name it. I even scored a luxury designer dress for 120 HKD (less than $20)!

Come join me as I share my thrifting insights and hunting skills!

Where you'll be

From Wan Chai MTR exit B1, keep walking down Hennesy Road for 6-10 minutes until you find the building on your right side. There are McDonalds and Pacific Coffee at the entrance. I will be waiting at the lobby or inside McDonald's.
