I used to love thrift shopping! But it's kind of hard getting quality pieces nowadays. Lately I've been getting my clothes from department stores like SM and Landmark. They have a lot of great designer-like pieces. I suggest you try them too!

I buy most of my clothes from ukay too. Pero, you're right. Sometimes there are days when there aren't nice pieces. If I really need a dress to go to a party or special occasion, i buy at SM dept store also sa girl's teen wear. Using your ukay skills, there are dresses there na P300-500 lang. Love it! ;D

Sis I buy dun sa ukay ukay sa Old Cinema ng Sta. Lucia East Mall, the one above the Bingo Bonanza ba yun. Okay naman yung selection nila ng clothes, andami kasi buong sinehan tsaka yung labas.

There are pieces that I would love to buy kaso nasa 200-350 pa ung price. I bought a couple of dresses for 150 each.

Actually meron, dun sa Farmer's Plaza sa 4th floor. Yun ung mall pagbaba mo mismo ng MRT Cubao. Naglilibot ako dun at ang dami kong nagustuhan, sadly hindi naman ako nagpunta dun para magshopping kasi wala akong dalang money that time  :'( :D ;D

dati sobrang no no ako sa ukay-ukay. and then nagtry ako. ayun nagustuhan ko naman. i bought my 1st piece for only 35 pesos. granny shorts pa nga yun pero ipapaalter ko. sana maganda yung maging output. :)

nagustuhan ko sa ukay-ukay dahil gumagalaw yung imagination ko habang tumitingin ako ng mga damit. :)

saan-saan magandang mag-ukay-ukay? yung mga branded pa and magaganda pa yung condition? :)
and any tips on making ukay? ;)

I love ukay-ukay. Dati pag gipit kami sa pera  ng friend ko nireraid namin lahat ng ukay ukay na malapit sa dorm. Halos kulang isang araw bago kami umuwi. Haha. Lalo na pag sale daig pa namin ang namalengke.   :D One thing I like in ukay ukay is that you can find a one-of-a-kind tee na wala sa mall na within budget.

I've been to ukay-ukay shops before to buy some clothes for a program (ako inutusan bumili but it is more like a dare). daming magagandang pieces that you can buy at affordable prices. isa lang ang problema ko: di ako makatagal kasi grabe ang pag-sneeze ko pag nasa lugar na yun. I wanted to explore pa naman  :-\

Super love thrift shops! :D Madami kang makikitang magandang clothes na wala kang kapareho plus MURA pa. And some clothes in ukay ukay naman kasi are branded and galing sa sa ibang bansa.  ;D

I will be making our garage like an ukay-ukay one of these weekends before the year ends. I have a lot of clothes I have to let go since I am trying to make more room for the family.

Has anyone tried the ukay-ukay thing in reverse? Meaning, you sell your own used clothes instead of buying used ones?

very true sis! ang gaganda nga ng clothes sa ukay ukay, mapapagastos ka talaga pero sulit naman kasi mas madami kang mabili na items sa 500php na budget unlike kung puro bench at penshoppe mga damit mo, 1-2 items lang ung mabibili mo sa 500 php. nakakainis nga lang pag nagpunta ka lang sa ibang tindahan sandali sabay pag balik mo nabili na ung item na gustung gusto mo.
