This week's holiday from school gave me the opportunity and time to visit a few more thrift stores in Hong Kong. Here are the addresses to add to my other posts here and here for any other local opshopaholics:
1. Ngau Tau Kok
Take Exit B3 at the MTR station. Walk left along Ngau Tau Kok Road past the school and park until you reach numbers 233 and 237. They are actually two separate stores.
2. Kennedy Town
12 Smithfield Road (between Belcher's Street and Rock Hill Road)
Tung Sing Road, near the bus terminal and Aberdeen Main Road
4. Oxfam Store (lots of English books!)
LG8 Jardine House
1 Connaught Place, Central
5. Castaways at St John's Cathedral
Take Exit K at Central Station, which leads you to the bank building. Cross the HSBC building through the open ground floor to Queens Road Central. Cross Queens Road Central at the
traffic lights to the Cheung Kong Centre. Go up the escalator, then take the stairs to the Cathedral. Note that the opening hours are as follows: Wednesday to Friday 12:00 noon – 2:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 10:30am – 12:30pm.
This Salvation Army store is not near any MTR stations, so be prepared for a taxi ride or long walk. It is at the corner of Tam Kung Road and Ma Tau Kok Road.
*Edited to add that my best bargain from the above op shops was this pink scooter for Tirzah, just $5.50 AUD. It has flashing lights in the wheels, and they still work!
