Treasure hunting in thrift stores is a favourite pastime for many eco-friendly Singaporean fashionistas, but The Loop & Co., an aesthetic cafe at Mount Austin in Johor Bahru, takes the thrifting experience to the next level.

As a two-in-one cafe and thrift store, it serves as a unique space, where you can get in a little thrift shopping before relaxing over a cup of coffee and dessert. 

You can find clothes for different occasions, with prices starting from S$0.59 (RM2). Chic cocktail dresses, elegant jumpsuits, shirts, trousers and so much more are waiting to be picked up by the right owners.

There’s no need to worry about the conditions of the clothing — they all have been thoroughly inspected and cleaned before being put on the racks.

With the idea of promoting a sustainable lifestyle in mind, The Loop & Co. also encourages customers to exchange their pre-loved clothing at the cafe for cash vouchers.

You can receive cash vouchers worth up to S$5.88 (RM20), which you can spend on any item in the shop. The value of the vouchers are determined by the weight of your traded clothes.

Before you trade in your clothes, check for the following don’ts:

  • No damages or piling
  • No discolouration
  • No school or work uniforms
  • No innerwear
  • No fabrics
  • No leather or PVC fabrics

You can use your cash vouchers for the cafe menu items as well, so why not try out some of their delicious handmade desserts?

There are plenty of selections on the menu, including the likes of coffee, tea, cakes and bread. Worth highlighting is their alcoholic Tiramisu Cake, which is made with a delightful blend of rum, Kahlua and Baileys.
