Hello everyone!

I am opening a second hand shop in Floreal, as soon as whatever permits are required, to run this service. Any tips and advice are most welcome!

Thank you

As far as I know Mauritius doesn't have 'thrift shops' as such but second hand shops, there's one in Port Louis that I have been to its pretty horrendous. The stuff is really really really old, there is much that you could call an antique but there are different places to buy second hand things depending on what they are.

There should be an 'Obscura' shop in Mauritius. :p

I know these things are on sale only at Auction houses at Port-Louis.
