Shopping leisurely while we’re in quarantine means your options are mostly what's available online, but that shouldn't limit your choices! If you’re really into dressing up, you have a Zoom meeting and you want to look presentable, or you just want to buy clothes for your future lakad with friends, lots of small businesses with unique touches are there for you.

There are shops that sell brand new or custom pieces, and there are shops too that let you buy or even rent secondhand clothes and accessories like @marae.ph on Instagram.

The shop is owned by two pediatric occupational therapists where they sell and rent their pre-owned stuff like clothes and accessories to promote sustainable fashion for the “modern and kuripot” Filipinas.

From the owners’ names Maria and Rae, they come up with Marae as their brand name—also from the Filipino term of endearment kumare, or mare.

Like a true kumare, the shop lets you borrow the items for a cheaper price and you will get a 50% cash refund once you return the item within 14 days. There’s a *buy* option too if you want the items to be yours ~forever~.

With the brand’s goal of sticking to sustainable fashion, they use scratch papers and old paper bags instead of plastics to pack your orders. (We love it!)

Aside from the sustainable and budget fashion, the owners are also LGBT advocates and they welcome all gender identities to shop and check out their business.

Marae just opened on June 27 but their team already made a fundraising campaign called "Never Gonna Jeep You Up!" for jeepney drivers who lost their livelihood due to the jeepney modernization program and mass transportation ban. The shop aims to support 40 jeepney drivers and their families by providing them with basic necessities. The shop owners together with their friends launched a raffle for their customers or anyone who wants to help. For every P50 donation, you get one raffle entry for a chance to get any of the items that they will post. They will select the winners on July 7. Visit @marae.ph on Instagram to know more about the raffle.
