I have always wanted to go thrift shopping,and I honestly thought thrift shopping is not possible in Kuwait!
Last weekend, coincidentally, fate lead us to Souq Al-Juma'a, popularly known as "The Friday Market".
This place was always ignored by us, since we thought of it as nothing more than a junk yard, but on reaching there I realized the magical haven!
It is located in Shuwaikh, a prime industrial area of Kuwait. It overflows with customers (mostly expatriates) during the evening, because, like I have mentioned before, the climate in Kuwait is more favorable after the sun sets.
The place contains second hand merchandises of everything under the sun and even brand new EVERYTHING.
Kitchen ware, pets, furniture, vehicles, hardware, antiques, clothes, makeup, food, shoes, sun glasses are just a few I can quickly recollect.
It is a huge open air space that one can enjoy even if they don't want to purchase anything. To stroll through with a hot cup of tea, to enjoy simple things in life! Life is not always about air conditioners and luxury!
Anyways, I will let my photos do rest of the talking, because they have quite a lot to tell!
