Fashion Markets

Hey style choicers! Have you ever been to a fashion market? It's crazy, right?! The hustle and bustle of people running around everywhere, the clutter, the persuasive stall owners, it's all a bit much to handle when it's your first time! I have been to a few markets, and I admit, I found it pretty difficult to enjoy, but I got a couple beautiful pieces to add to my wardrobe. I'm going to give you some of my tips for shopping in a market.
  • Be swift. If you're unsure about whether you want to buy something, and you don't want to be convinced to (If you need to be careful with your money but don't like saying no to the workers out of guilt, like me, this is a great tip!) when you see a piece you like, look at it for a few seconds and carry on walking. Think about whether you  want to buy it while you breifly look at other pieces, and if you do want to buy it, just walk up and grab it straight away and buy it, instead of standing there trying to decide with the stall owner in your ear telling you all of the wonderful things about it, which would change your desicion.
  • If you're about to buy something, always talk the prices down! The stall owners feel compelled to give you a deal, so take it as low as you can. If their price is £20, try for £15! Always try going £5 lower than the original price, and usually they'll give you a deal similar to that!
  • Keep your money safe. You never know who could be in that market, but don't take any chances. Keep your money and valuble items close to you, in your vision, and a little bit trickier to get to.
  • Buy pieces that you can't find in your local stores. Whats the point in going to a market if you're just going to buy something almost identical to something in a shop near you?

Thanks for reading! ☺
