my ukay ukay in a mag

i know it has been a while since i posted an entry here... sorry to my few readers which i think is now down to zero... and i'm also sorry to those who sent email enquiries i haven;t got time to answer all of you... let's just say that a lot is going on in my offline life, and i haven't really visited any ukay ukay shop for such a long time now (gasp! i cant believe it myself)

but anyways i am temporarily breaking my silence to let you know guys, as what the suggest, that one of the articles that i posted here found its way on a magazine! wheeeeeee =)

thank you Light Touch Magazine especially to Ms. Myra del Rosario. (PS i receive them last Aug, thanks again)

shoes at ukay ukay stores at baguio
i was like omg! shoes, shoes, shoes everywhere! and i dont this much ukay ukay shoes stores in manila, if there are just a few racks, but at baguio they have stalls just selling shoes
and the shoes that i saw at baguio are still in good condition, unlike those that i've seen around the metro.. or maybe im looking at the wrong store or that is if i was looking at all hehehehe.

i just love walking around baguio and seeing people wearing boots and very nice jackets! dang i really wanna kick myslef for not beign able to take pictures of people wearing those nice jackets and boots...

and i thought i'd seen it all! ;) and i think i mentioned that i saw big cup sized bra at an ukay ukay store in quiapo... but at baguio they have more, i think all sizes!!! LOL
and not one rack of bra but rows and rows of bra racks! i wonder if there are people who buy these stuff?

caps and ties

saw lots of ukay ukay bull caps and vintage neckties at baguio ukay ukay stores at session road
and if you are looking for vintage neckties i guess they have it too

ukay ukay at baguio

visited baguio, the ukay ukay capital *wink* but unfortunately my stay at the mountain city was too short and i wasnt really able to get out and hunt those really cool and cheap ukay ukay finds, but i have managed to get 2 shirts, and one of those shirts is a hello kity shirt *big grin* which i will post soon.
anyways you can find the best and cheapest ukay ukay finds at the baguio market, as in yun sa wet market. but the best time to visit the wet market is between 6-7 am, 12noon-1pm, and 5pm, but since i was doing some touristy stuff i wasnt able to visit the wet market at all! waaaahhh sigh, well anyways there's still next time :D

also, i know that what used to be bayanihan hotel is now a big ukay ukay store, so if you're visiting baguio this summer go and check out their ukay ukay.
i was only able to visit the ukay ukay shops along session road, actually it is a whole building dedicated to selling ukay ukay stuff but the prices are similar to those in manila, or i didnt dig or stayed long enough to find the best deals. well anyways the prices are still okay and the first night i tried visiting the ukay ukay stores, most of them were already closed! sigh but dont worry i visited them again the next night and found more stores open. will post more

ukay ukay warning

on a side note, here's a plea or an ukay ukay warning to shop lifters :)

found this sign at the 3rd floor shop

why the notice no changing of price tag please? because the sellers cannot really know which rack you get your skirt or dress, could be in the bargain section or in the new arrival section, i imagine how hard it is for them to keep track because most of the time the prices are just those small neon stickers that you can easily flick, and they were just counting on the goodness of their customers :)

ukay ukay shorts

i'm not sure if i already mentioned that ukay ukay stores are being visited by men not only because of their cool and unique shirts but also because of the shorts.
tons of shorts to choose from

3rd floor ukay ukay store

this is the at 3rd floor of the ukay ukay store at hildago street in quiapo,... and i am telling you this store is BIG! about 600 square meters in size so you could imagine how much ukay ukay stuff you can find here!
as with all other ukay ukay stores, the prices for "old stuff" are at a bargain price like 50 pesos each or 3 for 100 thingy... but the new arrivals price range is from 80 pesos

see these shoes? heheheh i didnt like any and most of the shoes they're selling aren't good or i guess the good ones were already gone :)

really tons and tons of clothes, shirts, jeans, dress, shorts, as in everything... the last time i visited this shop they were even selling cup D brassieres! LOL OMG i playfully put one of the cap in my head, could pass as a hat :)
they even have bed covers on sale :D

if you're really looking for a bargain ukay ukay store around metro manila, quaipo and carriedo street is the place you should go to. because i know bambang is a well known ukay ukay store but trust me those guys over there are selling their stuff at a marked up price and they are already separating the "signature" items form the rest.. unlike in this store, or any other store at avenida and quiapo, you just have to have the patience and time to look for a really great find.

fashion on a budget

enjoy the unique ukay-ukay shopping experience, stay chic and fashionable without hurting your budget - get ready to look like a million bucks for less
