Wordless Wednesday 013: Mitumba in Mombasa



The language of secondhand clothing is universal.

A bit of reminiscing here…

This is a mitumba spot that I always pass whenever I go to the market from my rented room in Lukore. I sometimes stop by to see what’s in stock and very much surprised to see designer items and vintage clothings every time. Of course, I had purchases when something caught my fancy.


  1. second hand clothing is huge huge huge in markets here (thailand) too. i think a lot of it was donated to cambodian and laotian refugees during the war(s) and after and has since been sold to thais to bring back to resell in thailand.
