ukay ukay stores at carriedo

i've mentioned in my previous post that i will show you where i bought the two dresses, so here is where exactly i found them...

so where is this ukay ukay store located? it is along the stretch of avenida or carriedo. actually you can find lots of ukay ukay stores along avenida, starting from recto till carriedo. in case you dont know where carriedo is, just ride the LRT and get off at carriedo station.

in case you cant find an ukay ukay clothes or item that you like, you need not worry that your trip is wasted, as i have said this stretch is full of ukay ukay stores (avenida used to be the fashion hub of manila, i guess you can now say its an ukay ukay hub as well hehehe)

to those of you wondering how an ukay ukay store looks like, here it is ...

this is what you'll see inside an ukay ukay store, racks and racks of used clothing sorted by skirts, tops, pants, etc.  this particular store is really small, some ukay ukay store even have bags hanging and display of shoes.

as i have mentioned before be warned, most ukay ukay stores doesnt have air conditioning and no fitting room.  in case you are allergic to dust this aint the place for you but that can be remedied i think by taking antihistamine before shopping.

Buti na lang malamig dito sa Baguio. Centralized aircon kasi, people would say!

Fitting room is just a piece of cloth that the sales lady would spread out, one end tied to the wall and the other held by her.

@gem - swerte talaga nyo at centralized ang aicon jan heheheh, yung SM nga jan diba laki tipid sa electricity bill :)

uh huh you're right, sometimes they will hold the cloth for you, pray they dont drop it off while your undress hehehe
