Tati Kapaya shares a morning shopping trip with a little ethical twist.
In her latest video, Come Thrift With Us, Tati Kapaya takes us through her day and shows us the excitement in thrift shopping.
Along with a friend, Tati goes to what they call a “Preloved Sale” where you pay £15 per kilo, which immediately perked up our ears (who doesn’t love a good bargain?). With us being so used to seeing hauls from high street shops (which can be pretty pricey), we loved seeing her make a day out of thrift shopping.
It was her first time at the sale so she didn’t know what to expect and ended up going over the kilo she was expecting to buy (girl, we have all been there).
She came out of sale brimming with excitement as she goes to do a haul, giving us a rundown of the items she picked up. The first item was a white denim jacket, something she had been looking for for ages and could not believe the amount she paid for it.
A tip she shared for others who may be thinking of going to a similar sale was up-cycling – taking an item you like an aspect of and transforming it into something you would wear. She purchased a Ralph Lauren top which she liked the colour of (a stunning baby pink) and she talks about cutting it in certain places to fit in with her style.
Thrift hauls aren’t too common in the UK YouTube community, yet Tati talks about it very naturally and at ease.
The rest of the video is filled with cute moments from her day, including her getting exciting about seeing her friend drive for the first time. One of the most relatable moment was as soon the haul part of the video was over, she went to make food. We all need a good meal after a good bit of shopping.
In a world where we we’re used to crowded Zaras and Primarks, seeing this enthusiastic video about thrift shopping was refreshing. If you are looking to shop on a budget, or find ways to be thrifty and ethical when it comes to shopping, this video will make your day – it definitely made ours.
