美鞋4雙購入過程 尋找價廉美物心得 4 pairs new bought fab shoes+ How to thrift amazing stuff


最近買下的多對新鞋,實在過份價廉物美,於是我又瘋狂掃貨,統統帶回家。每對均有個人特色,如今季大熱loafers, 猄皮尖頭,vintage款真皮,及精美玫瑰decor色丁stiletto。買鞋經驗不淺的我,形容這次爲一高峰。不誇張以30元價錢,買得到歐洲名牌真皮及優良鞋楦的,人生幾回?

i have bought many new shoes lately. They are surprisingly cheap. They each have their own selling point with the greatest hit high heels loafers, suede point toe, vintage style in real leather and the lovely rose decor satin stiletto. I am such an experienced shoes shopper. I'd described this time as a new page of my thrifting history!






朋友都在求地址,可是我心知,不是我獨食,相告無用。哪個女人不愛減價? 可是要説運氣,因為可能他那天擺賣當天就沒了。説毅力,還看以下能耐你有沒有。

My friend are all asking for the address. I really want to share however it's just pointless to tell. Sales is girls'best friend. But you gotta have the luck as the sales comes today and leave in a sec. Moreover, no doubt you gotta have the strength.

那天是這樣的,風和日麗的下午,與友人走到馬寶道逛逛。那是一個像是深水埗旁邊的市場,有賣魚賣肉和菜。一街檔口,各形色的商舗盡在那裏,市場之外還有出口店,賣雜貨,更有賣大陸化妝品等。試問這怎會是年青人會到的地方。 天氣曬又熱,我們幸見一出口店熱鬧非常,"賓賓"(非"紛紛") 圍觀,我倆平宜好貨愛好者就不怕擠擁一探究境。

That day was ultra sunny. We went to Mapo road in North point which is like Sham Shui po markets selling fish and veggie. There are stalls in the middle of the road. they are some outlets, food stores and even some cheap and fake cosmetics. So obviously this won't be a place for youngster to shop. We were so lucky to see an outlet throwing a big sale that many Filipino workers were looking up in crowds. Of course as a budget buyer, my friend and I just can't help to get through and have a look.

正是美鞋對對港幣30,雙雙連鞋盒亂放地上!我們大汗淋灕的搶着,金精火眼尋找合適自己的,有時因範圍太遠要跨步才拿到心水。可見過程瘋狂吃力。直至尾聲更下起雨來,我們兩手拿着許多的鞋盒,用經典街市專用的紅色塑料袋,使力回家去。

There are beautiful shoes in HKD30 each throwing on the floor with shoe boxes. We were sweating like hell but trying so hard seeking for the nice and fitted pairs. Sometimes we even have to step much forward and crossing the crowd to pick our spot. You can tell how much effort we made! And until late it suddenly rained, we both carryied heavy shoe boxes by the typical red plastic bag to home.

對很多人來説,我們爲貪小便宜,何苦如此購物?我卻覺得這樣很有成功感,對我來説卻是樂趣。我只是用耐力取代你們花下的大部份金錢,所以要找低價好貨除了運氣,還有以下條件。

people would judge why we put so much effort of saving money? But I really enjoy the way to shop like this and I am totally proud of it. I just have spend my effort to replace the amount you all have paid. That's I think I have these condition to thrift apart from having such good luck.

  1. 不怕髒和異相 Never avoid the dirt and being wierd

    通常賣平宜貨的地方都骯髒不高尚更別想豪華,低下階層的人爲多,競爭對手也當然是他們。但這比逛名店好的是不怕白眼無壓力,要哪件取那件,也不怕飛象過河,又可以盡情表露興奮感。

    Those thrifty place are usually dirty and messy. The lower income people are your competitors. But this is somehow better than being discriminated when you shop in the luxury label stores. Without pressure you can pick whatever you like and doesn't matter you grab those far from you. You can also show how happy and excited you are.
  2. 有觀察力、好奇心,勇於發掘嘗試 be observative, curious and brave to explore

    只要眼看四周,你就不會錯過平宜賣場。看到有興趣的就走過去看看,8卦一番。你也可以隨邊拿起觀看,看合適自己與否。這樣不只能找好貨,也開眼界,樂趣好多。

    You have to be clear mind and smart then the cheap nice stuff won't be missed. Whenever you see something interest just go and have a look. Pick up and see if it fits you. That's not jus tabout finding the cool stuff but also has boarden your sight
  3. 不輕易放棄、有氣力&耐性 Don't easily give up with strength and passion

    清貨數量之多,陳列無章,你必需以無盡力氣,搜索好貨。雖是吃力的,但成功和滿足感隨之而來。一直找就能找到一片天!

    As most of the clearance and sales are in bulk or displaying in a mess, you have to use up your strength to look for the best piece. It's tough but you will be satisfied and proud. it would just make your day!
  4. 眼明快手 Quick and ambitious

    這跟以上條件都有關。人人都在搶貨之時,眼不明手不快,一但放慢手腳,就給別人搶了買了,那時只得傷心。

    This is all about mentioned above. During everyone is trying hard to grab what they want, you are slower and late. Then regret and sadness remain.

能做到以上加運氣的,你能省下許多的錢,買更多好貨,件件精選,不後悔。

If you can do above with luck, you can definitely save a lot and purchase many more brilliant stuff without regrets. - strangejoanne

P.S. 筆者感嘆因地產商的壟斷,越少見香港的平民購物點。我們市民購物付款的時候,其實有多少部份是交到租金去,買到的貨跟本不值。小商戶生存難,香港政府的官商勾結和無能是直接影響大衆你我的。所以我們不能無視這問題,也請多選擇獨立小商戶購物,這是幫助自己和社會的。

P.S. I am feel upset of the monopolization of the properties consortium. It leads to the reduction of the shopping place for poorer consumer. A big part of the price we paid are for the rental. The value of the product is not worth it costs. The independent stores hardly survive. This is how the government collude with the consortium which affect all of us as a citizen. We can't ignore the issue that I sugguest to consume in those independent store which is helping us and the society.
