Why you should do this
Kantamanto is Ghana’s biggest second hand clothes market and it’s right in the heart of the capital, Accra. Kantamanto is home to one of the largest thrift markets in West Africa, annexed to Makola Market; the largest point of trade in the city. Kantamanto is a community on its own – full of arrangements of hand-me-down clothes, vehicle spare parts, home decor and footwear, which together give it the look of a grand flea market with almost no space left to spare. It provides clothes to about 80% of Accra's population. This is where you find vintage clothing . Take a thrifting tour through the Kantamanto market with Afrodistrict who has been thrifting there for 15years. Interact with the locals there and experience Kwamena bargaining power on anything you want to buy.
