We’re teaming up with 2manysiblings once again to present Nairobi’s coolest style event. Thrift Social 5 is a special 90s edition featuring performances by Just A Band, Shappaman and East African Wave. And for the first time ever, it’s also a night market.

Kenyan brother and sister Papa Petit and Velma Rossa launched the Thrift Social event series last year 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, attendees are encouraged to bring clothes and shoes to be donated to the Jacaranda School for the mentally handicapped.

There will also be a 2manysiblings merch kiosk on site where everything will be sold for KSH 500.

Check out the photos from Okayafrica's previous Thrift Social collaboration with 2manysiblings and read our interview with Papa Petit and Velma Rossa here.

Join Okayafrica and 2manysiblings at Thrift Social 5 on Friday, March 25 (2pm til late) at Rosedale Gardens (Dennis Pritt Road) in Nairobi. Advance tickets are available here
