The Fashion Pulpit is one of the more unique thrift shops in Singapore as it operates slightly differently compared to other thrift shops in Singapore. Instead of simply purchasing the clothes from the shop, you’ll have to first swap out some of your clothes to them.

You will then be required to sign up as a member and points will be given based on the clothes you are swapping in. These points then act as your budget for the day!

While it is indeed a little different from normal thrift shops, The Fashion Pulpit uses this system to promote and advance sustainable fashion in Singapore. Go give it a try!
