    Lightbulb cheap street/thrift shops in wan chai/causeway bay?

    hi,

    i'm someone with a budget that makes them unable to justify spending 20 (twenty) dollars on a t-shirt, even if it's really cool.
    i've had a good poke in me & gee (me & george? meorge & george?) in wan chai once, but as you can probably tell by my first sentence, had trouble actually buying anything.

    what i'm looking for in particular is women's clothes, i.e. dresses/skirts, and also cool and or funky graphic t-shirts along with jumpers. i've passed a lot of street stalls with relatively interesting looking stuff, but price and or quality almost always stops me from making any purchases.

    if anyone knows any places, street shop or not, that are consistent and reliable with prices for a budget that's 15-25ish per item and has actual interesting and or pretty clothes, please lmk! (also, i've heard that island beverly in cwb is good? if anyone knows any specific stores and could provide any sort of detail, i'd be grateful) thank you!

    we talking HK$ or US$ here. If its really HK$ then your going to have a hard time finding stuff for that budget that is COOL n FUNKY lol
    you might get lucky as per EastCoast at Fa Yuen Street but u will have to go store by store and she what they have in the discount boxes

    you can find some cheap t-shirts/pants/under garment in some small shops a long wanchai road, behind c.c.wu building, $10-$30-ish
    also can try Salvation army shop in Hennessy road
    Good luck

    Try North Point market - no idea if they have funky and cool, way past that. But certainly cheap.

    Btw what do you mean by rip, I thought it meant rest in peace

    Assuming the poster lives near Central then North Point is too far as they stated the same 17 min MTR journey to Prince Edward was too far....


    But seriously Kowloonside should offer cheaper opportunities. You could also try the sale racks of clothing merchants in SSP/
