venue : beside Zouk
Hello everyone! I'm here again searching for preloved and thrift shopping like Macklemore! hahaha.
I was so excited because this event is held by the same person who did KL Vintage Festival which went awesomely well,
it's organized by the very famous Duriana & PINTUMERAH people! and again I parked at this place in front of Zouk~
omg so happy for FREE PARKING, hopefully no one sees me writing this so they won't collect fees the next time ~_~ whoops!
I went here with my babe / partner in crime Vickie, and so did we for last year's KLVF
seems like thrift shopping is gonna be our tradition now, aww so sweet~~~ :D
When I first arrived at the venue I was kindda shocked because I was approached straight away by friendly the organizers
saying that they knew me from reading my previous blog post on KL Vintage Fest here and that they really like it. omg... damn shy~~~
I'm so honored! too bad I forgot to take a picture with the awesome team who made it possible this time again!
I've learnt what to wear during thrift shopping... (anything comfy and airy)
Comfort is the key because you're gonna be digging, searching up and down for the coolest stuff.
That's why this time I'm wearing my house pants (that I use for running) and my jelly sandals to be in total comfort.
I'm dressed for maximal flexibility to grab and search for items fast! haha
OKAY TIME FOR SOME THRIFT HUNTING!!
One thing that I'm absolutely delighted about is the (new?) brick pavement that they put in.
It was a rainny saturday morning so I was really afraid that the ground was gonna be muddy and smelly.
because that's how it was the previous time for KLVF, so this time I'm SO GLAD I didn't had to go through the same thing again!
Not sure was it because of the new brick pavement or the placement for the booths, but whatever it was,
great job to the organizers making sure we had total comfort while thrift shopping! 360 bazaar KL here we go!!
first stall we visited, and this was our first buy!! :D
we bought the same one because omg it's so CUTE! and only rm3!
Coca-cola collectibles, vintage silverware, old cereal boxes, and preloved Dr. Martens are a MUST in any vintage event!
The reason why they named it 360 Bazaar KL, is because it's not like the previous KLVF which has mostly preloved colthes,
this time they wanted to pull in lots of other things besides clothes hence the name 360!
Was glad to acknowledge that when I met the organizers :)
The drink I went crazy for at KLVF, POP, THE SODA is their official drink woohoo!
Got mango for myself, and vickie got lychee ~ yummmss so good after walking around.
Thank god the weather wasn't hot too! It was 12pm I expected the sun to be stoching hot on top of us,
but no it was dancing tiny drizzle of rain drops, which I didn't mind, at least it's not raining cats and dogs!
OKAY continue shopping! (with my drink and a grin on my face)
and omg there's this shop that stayed close to my heart ...
the owner and I from her shop - Escape Artist Collective
so friendly and so kind to all of her customers, so patient with a warmth spirit, and such an inspiration!
I wis I could travel the world, collect unique items and sell them :) sigh such a free spirit, I love people like that!
the first thing that caught my attention straight - these awesome pipe tightener rings and she only had two!
I was there early when she was setting up her booth (lucky me) so I saw this on the table before she was setting up,
haha, and of course, I grabbed it! ;D with pride. I always see these kindda industrial DIY rings on the net,
I always wanted one, and trust me, I even went to check out hardware stores but couldn't find the right size!
Most of the items that she sells are from all around the world, it's no wonder she's called Escape artist.
Left is some amazing handmade brass spiral hooks! me and my babe got ourselves one of these
Right are some molecule LSD, Acid, ecstasy and etc necklace. too cool! I like how not everyone will know what sign is that.
And only the ones who knows, know.
Lol this little girl wondering which one to get.
Nice way to display her rings, haha! she even sells crystals omg, I love this shop and it's aura so much!
check her out at facebook guys!
but now it's
TIME TO MAKAN!
so many booths for food!! but here's my favorite! (clockwise)
-Yummy meat balls just because I was craving for Ikea's one the other day,
-this nasi kukus was SO YUMSSSSS. the fragrant of it allured me from a mile away no joke!
-Surprisingly my friend opened a booth - gimme shelter, their virgin mojito are yums!
-lastly is the bbq... omg... looking at it just makes me so hungry!!!! I can smell it tru my pictures...
and I love this awesome maison jar (and drink) from the booth behind me,
RM9 just for lemonade wasn't cheap, honestly I was just buying it for the awesome jar,
Now I must think what awesome stuffs I would wanna put in this jar, woohoo!!
our awesome hennas that make me smile whenever I look at it sighhhh :) ONLY rm5 people! so cheap!
You know, I love hennas so much, maybe on my wedding day (if I were to ever have one one day in the future),
I would get some henna artist and draw them free for my guest. I'm thinking of having a very "indian" theme wedding,
omg why am I even thinking about weddings?! I'm so single right now it's not even funny! but maybe one day~ *shy*
my buys from 360 bazaar Kuala Lumpur!!! My best buys (or best gets in this case) would be my henna.
Next would be my accessories from ESC :) There weren't much vintage / pre-loved clothes for this event compared to KLVF,
so that was quite a bummer for me cause I was expecting and usually would be carrying bags of clothes back! haha
For this event there were more "other 360 things" like collectibles than clothes, so I didn't spend much,
but we still had great fun and enjoyed ourself even tho it was drizzling,
we still had many laughs and enjoyed the spirit of thrift shopping. :)
And I met so so so many familiar faces and said hi everywhere! XD
This was more like a warm-up for KLVF,
which I heard is coming this August? (correct me if i'm wrong).
OH WELL, can't wait!! I hope it does happen and hope that there'll be more new booths for that ! :D
I've got so many clothes right now I'm thinking of selling my own preloved clothes away,
how about organizing an event that does only that?
If I were to do that, would you guys come to support?
:) till then! xx
