Want to flaunt your fashion but you’re on a tight budget? We got you!
Kapampangans are known to be maporma or fashionable. Their varying fashion styles from head to toe are truly fascinating. Kapampangans will surely keep up with the trend, whether they have money or not. But who says you have to splurge to get that admired look and desirable garb?
Millennials and Gen Zs alike are becoming more exploratory when it comes to fashion. Prior to the pandemic, several young Kapampangans regularly visited different thrift shops downtown. But since quarantine restrictions limited the movement of the usual shoppers, the stores surely found their way online.
If you’re looking for something to wear on any day or occasion, here are some online thrift shops you can visit:
