People don't often associate Johannesburg with thrift shopping but MOONGA K., Alt R&B singer, showcases a different side to the bustling city in his guide. "South Africa's got a vibrant thrifting culture no matter what age group and I think that's quite beautiful." Some of his favourite spots around Joburg has given him the chance to get everything from "vintage clothing, to film cameras and record players."
One of his favourite finds though, is a "Kodak Super 8 camera from the 1960's that still works -- I got it for such a good price. Always wanted one so, very gassed to finally own it!" A great way to explore South Africa's biggest city, says MOONGA K., is by shopping and immersing yourself in the many charity shops, thrift stores and markets Joburg has to offer. "Folks should thrift in Johannesburg to get a sense of the history of the city - if you want to find the best outfits, you're going to have to get into the ends to find them.
