Thrifty Business – Secondhand Shopping in BoQ

A collection of clothes, housewares and other thrifted items in front of a staircase.

These local thrifters bring secondhand finds into the 21st century.

Do you love the sense of victory when you find the perfect piece at your local thrift store? Or do you prefer your tried-and-true shops at the mall? Even secondhand skeptics pause to scroll through the curated Instagram grids of Trove & Time and Laundry Club.

Think: teak wood candlesticks, brass or ceramic jewelry dishes, rattan wall hangings, cozy knits and vintage silk scarves. This new way of shopping is first-come-first-served with options for local pickups or deliveries. We like it so much, we’ve got notifications set for these two virtual shops!
