Best Thrift Stores to Shop at in Jamaica

It’s still the season for shopping and shopping thrift stores can be hard in Jamaica. Searching for local thrift stores can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. While there are countless clothing retail stores online or traditional storefronts it’s not the same for thrift stores. This year however I found a few stores that I’d love to share with you. In usual Sunny Side style, I’ll take the guesswork out of finding the right thrift store to suit your needs by providing a list of all the thrift stores I know. I’ll throw in a mini-review of each store to sweeten the pot too.

I love thrift shopping, finding steals for less than half the original price. So when I found this first store I was an undergraduate at the UWI and it was an absolute Godsend. As a college student funding my wardrobe was never a priority and that made it more important for me to find attractive clothing for a bargain. Alas, a thrift shopper was born.

Online Thrift Shopping. Get deals on new and gently used fashion.

I was reading the newspaper one day at Uni when I came across an ad for a pop-up thrift shop, right away, I took a picture of it with every intention of attending the very next one, and that’s exactly what I did!

Back on the Rack Ja

Back on the Rack Ja was my first and in my opinion, the best thrift store Kingston has seen. Not only is it an excellent store to find unusual pieces but the proceeds are in aid of charity. What more reason to shop there do you need? Prices range from JMD$100- 1000 and you can find books, children’s toys, bedding, sweaters, you name it. If you’re looking to mix up a contemporary wardrobe with vintage statement pieces this is definitely the place to shop.

The Thrift Link

Next on the list is, The Thrift Link, on Instagram as @876thrift. This thrift store I found when I went hunting for more options, I haven’t bought anything from them yet but the pieces displayed were worthy of a follow and I’ll be keen to see what they post in the future.

Thrift Nature Ja

Another online thrift store is Thrift Nature Ja, also on Instagram as @thriftnatureja. This is the only store I’ve found to offer consignment. You can sell your new or gently worn items with them at a percentage of the sale price.

Thrifty Boutique Ja

Lastly, there’s Thrifty Boutique Ja , a Mandeville based thrift store which stocks baby clothes, shoes, bags etc. You can check them out on Instagram too.

There you have it, my thrift store finds of 2018, alongside my favourite local thrift store. If you want to find more thrift clothing you can also check out Restitch and Get Like New Clothing with 15% Off Your First Purchase. Code: THRIFT15

Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you shop thrift items too and where your favourite store is.

  1. […] Your budget needs to be specific to you, so be honest about your spending habits. An effective budget accounts for both income and expenses. That means the money you earn minus your bills and other needs. Once that’s down take a look at what’s left. If there’s no money left, it’s time to revisit your expenses to see what can be reduced. Maybe take $1000 dollars off your food bill and another $1000 of clothing. If you’re looking for more affordable clothing options you can check out some of Jamaica’s thrift stores. […]
