Thrift Store Shopping Trend Grows in Lima

by admin on July 14, 2011

Americans can find good deals on a variety of items while shopping in Peru, and now fashionistas with a flair for vintage finds have two new options for shopping in Lima. Antik Vintage in Miraflores specializes in giving vintage clothes alterations that bring them up to date with today’s fashion standards. Peruvian bloggers love the treasures at Antik Vintage, and the store’s popularity is also spreading by word of mouth. Las Traperas is a pop-up fair filled with vintage styles for both men and women, promoting reducing, reusing and recycling. The next fair will run from July 16th through July 24th in Barranco. Both of these options bring vintage style to Lima, and give travelers a new place to find unique souvenirs during trips to Peru.
