First off, let me point out some of the things you can buy for 6 euros in Amsterdam:

– a phallus shaped salt & pepper shakers
– 18 cigarettes
– almost one 24hr bus card
– a vintage jacket, 100% silk blouse, viscose & silk blend kimono

If I was a porn star, I might’ve gone with the first thing on this list. But being a style blogger, you know the last option was obviously what really caught my attention.

As I was wandering around the streets of Amsterdam Oost one day, I spotted a little flea market. Me being me, I had already spent a substantial amount of $$$ in the L’Oreal section of Kruidvat (dutch drugstore chain). Yet, I still decided to take just a quick glance at the offer of this newly discovered market, no strings attached. That glance turned into a gaze the moment I spotted the long-coveted vintage denim jacket. Then, as the seller was telling me that the price of said jacket was 2 euros – the gaze quickly transformed into a jaw-drop. I felt inclined to look around some more and wouldn’t you know – two more high quality treasures popped out: this gorgeous navy silk blouse and the flowy paisley kimono. They say three’s a charm and I couldn’t agree more. Especially if you’re fortunate enough to score them for less than a coffee at Starbucks! And if you’re not, don’t fret – here are some similar items you can pick up online:

I really love you’re pointing out the cheapest things in your wardrobe – not the expensive ones like all the others do to appear “rich”. I’d love to find a silk garment under 20€ one day… I hope this day will come! My best flea market find in Austria, Europe here was a hand-held mirror from the Belle Epoque / Jour de Siécle / Jugendstil Ära, which cost me 30 €.

    Wow that is a really great find! For me it’s all about the quality of the fabric and the garment itself – not the price tag that someone stuck to it. Also, I strongly believe we should always try and be nicer to our planet and reuse & recycle more; thrifting is only one of the ways we can be environmentally friendly. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! x

too bad I don’t use salt and pepper, that phallus thing sounds quite rad!
and don’t get me started on how awesome second hand finds can get. what’s not to love about shopping that’s sustainable, cheap, and offers unique, stylish items? I scored a perfect small black backpack for about 3 eur earlier this year and I’ve been wearing it day in, day out ever since – it’s my absolute fave bag and just what I’ve been looking for, for 10x less than in a store!

    Haha, I guess you could always use it as decoration! You know I share your thoughts, 100% agreed. Omg, if you featured it on your blog, please share the link, I’d love to see it! I’m slightly jealous now tbh, I have yet to find a great bag for SO little!
