If you want to get fancy clothes at low prices, Wait for Nairobi peddlers in the evening! Yes! I said wait for Nairobi peddlers in the evening. These hawkers of new trends in the city are usually all over the town in the evening. Clothes usually go for as low as Shs 100, whether trousers, skirts, sweater tops, smart tops, jumpers, tights, jeans, jackets, dresses, shorts among other many kinds of clothes. Those peddlers mostly take advantage of rush hour, when people are a lot in town while heading home from their places of work. The sellers of the commodities shout around about what they are selling and at how much it is going for to attract buyers. Passersby are usually attracted by sale of unique items or cheap prices. The clothes and other items sold by these people are usually in most cases second hand but unique items in Kenya. The peddlers in Kenya sell the items to everyone equally.
Among clothes, the hawkers in Nairobi also sell shoes, boots, accessories and jewellery, kitchen items, towels, novels and other books, nail polish, phone covers, and many other things. If there is a person who has a sweet tongue, it’s a hawker in Nairobi. You can just buy anything, including items you don’t even need. They know their business, and it is indeed an art! It has become like a way of life, and the law enforcers in Nairobi have taken a reluctant role in chasing the peddlers in Nairobi away hence allowing the sale to continue. Probably because they benefit from it too!
It’s a huge advantageous craze to buy from the peddlers! Your shopping distance is reduced, you get various places to choose from, you get the items at a low price, and you could also negotiate the price! Kenya is a place of plenty. It shows right from the streets of Nairobi. The Nairobi peddlers are usually found all the way from Ngara to Nairobi town along the Murang'a Road and then to downtown towards Muthurwa area in Nairobi. Make your way one of these evening and you can get all you need just from the streets!
