lysol or domex, as long as you dont pour it directly sa clothes, di naman namumuti...

i use Zonrox Color-safe... mas okay sya...

I just tried twice sa ukay-ukay, for a jacket. Tapos hindi na ako umulit kasi parang pag pumapasok ako sa ukay ukay store, na allergy ako sa amoy. That starts nung naglihi ako, from then on, hindi na ako pumapasok sa ukay ukay.

yung new office mate ko ang nagdala sa akin sa ukay ukay... madami pang office attire at yung mga dresses nila ok din kase iba yung style at mura lang. pag gusto ko talaga at hindi kasya sa akin pinapa alter ko... mas mahal pa nga yung pa alter ko kesa sa price nung blouse... ang laki nung pinupuntahan namin na ukay ukay... nkakapagod tumingin at ang dami din pumupunta dun kase pag minsan 20 pesos each lang lahat at pwede ka pa tumawad sa counter pag madami binili mo.

Yung mom ko naman ang nag-introduce sakin ng ukay2x. I think nung high school pa lang ako nauso na yan e. (that was loooong time ago :P). Bilib ako sa mom ko kasi maski worth 5 pesos lang yung suot, di talaga mahahalata. She was working in an office pa dati as a manager ng isang pre-need company pero corporate pa rin ang dating maski galing ukay2x [textspeak!] ibang pieces ng damit nya. :D i do browse some thrift shops din every once in a while. Bihira ako bumili ng clothes sa mga malls, when I do, usually sa mga sale din. Like ko bumili sa mga ukay2x kasi unique items usually e, wala kang katulad.

kapag sinabi bang thrift shopping, ibig sabihin ukay-ukay?


for my hubby's trip abroad, i bought him an Armani trenchcoat for only P300... nabati daw sya nung boss nya na mamahalin yung daw yung suot nya.,.. sabi ni hubby bigay daw ng brother ko from the US... comment daw ng boss nya, mamahalin daw yung ganun sa US, almost $300... tawa daw ng tawa si hubby kasi magaling daw ako pumili...

lately lang, napapansin ko, medyo brand conscious na mga thrift shops ngayon... may mga items na sila na worth 1k and above, depende sa brand...

@ trinity, pano mo nalaman na orig siya? Ako kasi kapag may nakikita akong designer brands, hindi ko madistinguish kung orig or fake e.  Ang ending, wala akong nabibili.  LOL.  Di ko din kasi ma-take yung amoy ng ukay store na napupuntahan ko.

@ stylemargarine, saan sa quiapo?  Lagi ako sa quiapo pero wala akong napapansin na ukay.

my ate loves ukay ukay kasi may nag susupply sa kanya. gaganda ng mga damit and mura nga. unique pa.

ako naman nabilhan na ng ukay ukay na skirts ni mother. ang ganda nga din, hindi halatang ukay.

for me din mas gusto ko bumili kung sale. nanghihinayang ako kung orig price kasi magsisale din naman. lalo na kapag weekend sale sa mga malls, peyborit ko yan.

this is my hobby rin. kahit mura, at least yung pieces na meron ka, hindi yung tipong yun din ang suot ng lahat ng makakasalubong mo, unlike if you buy from tiangges.

shoes ang hilig ko. ^^

Me too, i love ukay-ukay! My friend introduced me to this thing. At first, akala ko talaga hindi ko magugustuhan, kasi nga yung idea ko of an ukay-ukay store is yung maalikabok yung place at amoy moth balls mga damit. Hindi pala! From then on, naging ukay ukay addict na ako.

Sikat thrift shop dito sa Imus Cavite yung Khing Bhats. 4 na yung stores nila sa Cavite: 2 sa taas ng Puregold Imus, 1 Imus market, 1 malapit sa Chowking sa Imus bayan din). Sobrang okay yung store, sobrang laki niya, airconditioned, may mga couch pa, tska maayos yung mga fitting rooms. Tapos yung mga damit hindi amoy luma, as in well maintained talaga.

Everytime I go there, minimum of 5 blouses nabibili ko, prices range from 20 to 80 pesos. Yung mga dresses naman 120 pesos to 240 pesos. Ok din yung mga jackets nila. Makakatyempo ka ng Giordana, Zara, Marks & Spencer, G2000, etc.

Every time susuotin ko yung mga nabili ko from ukay-ukay, palaging may mga officemate ko na nagcocompliment sa akin. One officemate nga who frequents "Mango" shops thought na Mango yung tatak ng isa kong top, super madetalye kasi. Sobrang bihira na ako ngayon bumili sa mga malls, depende na lang kung sale talaga.

Try nyo din mga sisses! Basta lang piliin nyo yung Ukay-Ukay store na pupuntahan nyo. Hindi nyo naman kelangan magtiis sa mga mababaho at maalikabok na stores kasi marami na ngayong thrift shops na airconditioned at nasa malls na. Happy shopping!
