Although I truly love Copenhagen and everything that has to do with it, there is one tiny, little thing that hits me every day; the extremely high prices. No, the Danish capital is not the best city to live on a budget. Luckily, my not-too-expensive rent makes up for my expenditure on organic food and juices and (thank god!) it seems that, which each day, it gets easier to make my way through the Copenhagen jungle of expensive price tags. Plus, looking for cheaper options makes one actually really creative.
And so it happened that I became quite an advanced flea market hunter. I already loved buying vintage clothing in Amsterdam, but even vintage being highly overpriced in Copenhagen, I had to make a switch to the hardcore second hand “loppemarked” (flea market). And really, looking for treasures between all the useless flea market stuff is definitely rewarding!

My biggest loppemarked-trophy is the long, dark Zara coat that I found at the montly flea market hosted in café “Studenterhuset” (The Student House). I wear it almost every other day, as it is so easy to combine with basically every colour and piece of clothing. I nevertheless seem to stick with my black/white combi almost every time…
Studenterhuset’s flea market is hosted on the first Sunday of every month from 11.00 – 16.00. As a student, it is definitely worth paying a visit when you find yourself in Copenhagen!
