Buying Vintage

Penny wise, pound foolish.
Went shoe-shopping at Yaba Tejuosho market this week. Bought some really quirky, nice, earthy and comfortable shoes at 1/10 the "Island" price. One's red, one cream, one brown. So I may actually give my favourite pair (black sandals, bought at the same location) a bit of a holiday - or not.
For clothes too, I like the Yaba area - inside Unilag, near Unilag front gate, and at Sabo Ecenter - 1/3 of Island price.
I found some blouses in a stall at Ojota one morning. I think they were China, not okrika. Who can tell the difference? Who cares? They are just lovely.

Glossary:
China ~ cheaply manufactured
okrika ~ second-hand
