StudioThrifty4 is a glamorous little treasure trove of a vintage thrift shop tucked away in a warehouse in industrial Bowen Hills.

Here, under a ceiling of mirror balls, strings of golden beads and suspended glitter stilettoes you’ll find Brisbane’s best value by a mile collection of vintage and pre-loved clothes, shoes and accessories for all genders.
