Stocking Up on Stockholm Vintage

Who: Vanessa of Not A Paper Cup

What: Ostrich padlock clutch

Where: Beyond Retro, Södermalm Stockholm

How Much: $25

When I Use it: Anytime, all the time! It’s my biggest thrift obsession. The brown goes with almost everything, and it’s the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. The padlock also functions perfectly, so everyone thinks I’m hiding diamonds in there!

Shopping Tips: I used to always be on a frantic hunt to buy something in particular, but now I have realized the best way is to choose three or four thrift stores you love and go to them regularly. The greatest thing about thrift stores is that there is always so much coming and going! So, doing it this way always makes it easier to find the things you love.
