Last Sunday, we teamed up with 2manysiblings to present the third-ever, all-day Thrift Social in Nairobi. Kenyan brother and sister Papa Petit and Velma Rossa launched the event series in May as a “platform to promote young creative entrepreneurs” while encouraging their peers to give back to the local community. In addition to shopping with some of the flyest vendors in Nairobi–Suäve Kenya, By Isma, Kenyan Vintage and Monoxrome–and catching DJ sets by TAIO, Savara Mudigi, Jack Rooster and Nairobi Dhobi, attendees were encouraged to bring clothes and shoes to be donated to the Jacaranda School for the mentally handicapped.


Take a look at photos from 2manysiblings and Okayafrica’s Thrift Social at The Elephant in Nairobi in the gallery above and read our interview with Velma Rossa and Papa Petit.
