A Petite Girl’s Thrift Haul #4: Italy Edition!

So for the entirety of  last month, I had the opportunity to study art in Rome, Italy with a program called “Rome Art Program.” Not only did I make tons of cool pieces of art (see my ART), and make a lot of great friends, but I also found a bunch of sweet vintage/name brand items for only around 1-15 Euros a pop. There were no thrift stores in Rome.  There were quite a handful of vintage stores but no purely cheap real thrift stores. However, Rome does have a lot of flea markets, with oodles of unique furniture, knick-knacks, photographs, and most importantly: clothing! Porta Portese is Rome’s biggest, most popular flea market with seemingly over 100 booths selling everything you can imagine. There really was something for everyone. Luckily, Porta Portese was right in the neighborhood where I was staying, so every Sunday morning ( it runs from 8-2?) I ventured to the market to satisfy my need to thrift. At the market, I purchased a fair of amount of items ( whatever I could fit in my suitcase to bring home.)

Besides rummaging through the stands at Porta Portese, I found a really cool well-priced vintage store in my neighborhood called Twice Vintage
