StudioThrifty4 is a glamorous little treasure trove of a vintage thrift shop tucked away in a warehouse in an Albion industrial backstreet.
Here, under a ceiling of mirror balls, strings of golden beads and suspended glitter stilettoes you’ll find Brisbane’s best value by a mile collection of vintage and pre-loved clothes, shoes and accessories for all genders.
For everything at Studio Thrifty4 is just $5, from men’s jackets to evening gowns, clutches, tea dresses, jeans, retro tees, disco mini dresses, hats, boots and towering platforms from the 1950s to the 21st century.
All of these are sourced direct from West End’s popular SWOP Clothing, who donate the items that they don’t keep and sell in their own shop.
And that’s not all. Proceeds raised from the sale of each item go to a very good cause –helping the homeless. Called Pay-a-Sack Forward and created by Studio Thrifty4’s owners, $5 goodie bags of essentials including self-care items are packed instore then distributed to local organisations including helping Hands, Pindaris and 3rd Space.
Nice to know – Next door to Studio Thrifty4 is one of Brisbane’s funkiest cafes – She Bangs, making the perfect pre-or-post-shopping pitstop for outstanding food and coffee.
