OhMyFrip! April 8 and 9 in Labège, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For the first time in Toulouse, OhMyFrip is setting up shop in the Labège 2 shopping centre. Carrot-cut jeans, American university sweatshirt, ruffled dress; the giant ephemeral thrift store offers unique pieces from the 70s to the present day. “The clothes are collected all over the world,” explains Julien Michelon, one of the organizers. 8,000 hangers are on display, with an upgrade every hour. Modern clothes racks, sportswear or leather goods, the pieces are sorted by type of collection. The sale is made by weight (there is no minimum weight). The kilo of clothing costs 28€.
The great vintage sale on April 14, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Toulouse
The Toulouse fashion brands Baraque à Fripes and Les P’tites Pépées are joining forces for a day for their big spring sale. Clothing and accessories will be offered at the Salon Guerlin, at 5 rue Kennedy in Toulouse. The idea is to sell the old collections of the two brands at low prices: hundreds of items at 5, 10, 15 or 20€. “The event is organized in a demonstration of ethical consumption since it is second hand”, specifies Laura Lougarre, co-organizer of the event.
