Bezalel Market

my dear friend Lee and I decided that we need some new clothes,
but going to the mall like any ordinary girl wasn't what we were looking for, we wanted unique and cheap clothes,
so we gave secondhand stores a chance..
after the second store ,we realized that it wasn't as chap as we thought it'll be.
buying a dress that someone else wore before me ,in the same price as a new dress form zara wasn't that attractive.
we satlled for Bezalel market.. the clothes are cheap, they have brand (old-navy, gap ect.)
and no one wore the clothes before we did.

I ended up buying this high waster skirt for 20 NIS :


those wannabe Ray-Ban Wayfare for 10 NIS :
there was a label on the sunnies that said - club monaco 55$ . Great buy i'll say.
i going to keep those until i buy the real deal.
and this dress for only 20 NIS :


the dress is slightly big but with some alterations it'll be perfect!
Lee bought a ( to die for )plaid shirt , tunic (Old navy) and black wannabe ray ban (each for 10 NIS) .
3.47 NIS = 1$ american

Very nice: you like your '80s looks, and that dress is very Audrey Hepburn—as susan^^ has already stated above. Oh, and I like your bedspread—or whatever was the background for the nice photos you took!

Looved the dress, specially the back, so pretty. I'm sure it'll fit you great with some alterations :), besides 20 NIS sounds good to me!

Personally I love that someone has worn my clothes before I have; it's like the items have a history and I'm sharing something with the person that I know nothing about.

I think there's something quite special about it. I also think it's so important to embrace second hand clothing; it's so much better for the environment than buying mass produced items that have been made by people who have been expolited.

Phewww, that's just my view, but hopefully I could make you think..

That dress is lovely. It's unfortunate that your secondhand shops costs much--I like them here because they are dirt cheap.

saray said...

thanks to you all i really appriciate it!

chililady : OMG thanks!! i'll link you now :)

discothequechic : I don't have a problem wearing second hand colth but i just don't think the price is fair.
i buy second hand cloth in the US all the time but here its just too much.
but i agree with you about embracing it for the envoirment.
