dito naman sa dasma cavite sikat ang Tejay's thrift shop. malaki ang branch nila sa Robinson's dasmarinas, may hiwalay na boutique for new arrivals, shoes and bags, yung mga lumang stock..
bale 3 boutiques sa loob ng mall. meron rin silang branch sa may bandang walter mart, and meron din sa may golden city salawag...

^kapag sale, the items there ranges from Php25-75, i think. I got some real nice blouses there already for as low as 25 pesos. :)

apir sa mga followers ng ukay dito.

same as my question sa isang thread, alam nyo ba kung kailan mga new arrivals sa cubao at anong store? kasi malayo tirahan ko at di lalagpas ng Quezon Ave workplace ko sa sasadyain ko talag yung Cubao na yun.

► pansin ko lang, pag new arrival mas mahal no? tapos pag patagal ng patagal, binababaan na nila yung price? dito lang ba yun samin or it same din sa other ukay ukay???

i'm into ukay finds also!

dito sa amin ganyan din...

everything 150/120 or depende sa item. then after mga 2 weeks 20% of na, then magiging 50% off hanggang sa maging 3 for 100 na lahat. then open sila new stocks balik na sa 150/120 ang price

hay bakit ganon? wala pa din akong makitang ok na ukay shop hanggang ngayon?  :(  Yung mga napupuntahan ko, ang liit ng store na halos napagpilian na yung tinda, not to mention na ang layo pa sa amin.  San po ba meron na mejo malapit sa sta. Mesa?  :(

certified thrifter here! tiangge, ukay, sales, online...basta bagsak presyo game ako!

favorite ko is ukay though - the thrill of finding a piece na unique, in good condition, branded, and/or classic/vintage for dirt cheap prices. nothing beats baguio for me pag dating sa ukay. i go there several times a year and i always dedicate 1 whole day for ukay. kahit na allergic ako sa dust i don't care. at the end of the day, kahit maga na muka ko ok lang. it will go away naman eh. at least happy naman ako with my purchases.

my rule when thrifting when i find something really nice but the price is a little bit over my comfort zone, i walk away muna. if it continues to haunt me after ilang stores, i'll buy it.

tagal ko na di nakakapag-ukay.
i guess mahirap for me kasi big na ako, unlike dati madali makahanap ng size.

haaay, motherhood nga naman....
you know you love me!

natawa ako sa haunt mo sis. late this afternoon, went to my ukay haven and bought the bag that has been "haunting" me. can sleep better tonight  ;D
