Sakura: Another Thrifting Place in Phnom Penh
**Update** This shop has branched out all over Phnom Penh so its more accessible..
A few days after Christmas, I woke up really early and felt restless. I bugged Hi-ace then to drive me around. It was our usual ‘lets-drive-around-and-check-out-anything-interesting-along-the-way’ routine. Whenever we do this, we always stumble across something really nice, usually hole-in-the-corner shops or restaurants.
We were cruising along St. 271 when I saw a huge banner and it says Christmas and New Year Sale – 30% off. The thrift hunter in me flashed green and I promptly told Hi-ace to make a stop. It was a bargain hunting place indeed!
The shop’s (its more like a huge warehouse) name is Sakura Used Japanese Products. My interest was instantly piqued coz I love Japan Thrift Shop here in Phnom Penh. That’s one of our most frequent thrifting haunt with my Peluka Sisters.
Of course, I took a photo of what’s inside the shop. But I’ll be posting it on my Girl on a Thrift Hunt (G-O-T-H) blog. Was it a Gold Mine? Let me put it this way, they have lots of stuff, the place was literally spilling with goodies, but it was a bit pricey. I think they would do better to lower the price, after all those are used items. But they are still worth checking out, specially the home items.
