Hello everyone! Greetings from self-proclaimed ukayista here. I used to buy clothes from malls and boutiques. But, years back, I discovered that great treasures could be found from ukay-ukay. Here in this blog post, I am going to share my great ukay-ukay finds in Baguio night market. I do swear, an hour of strolling WAS NEVER ENOUGH!
Ukay-Ukay is not for the weak…
Ukay-ukay is not for everyone. At first, some people may be hesitant to go ukay-ing because of the following reasons: (1) it’s dark and hot inside, (2) it requires energy to go from here to there and browse through the racks of the used clothes, (3) the smell is unpleasant, and (4) it requires a lot of patience. However, for me, I really can endure especially when I find good-looking clothes, my eyes sparkle every single time. For as low as Php 10.00 at my favorite thrift shop in Cebu, I can already buy a lot of stuff!
Another thing I love about ukay-ukay is that it helps me save a large amount of money. I started to go almost every week before thrift shopping when I started a new job – to find office clothes. Then, I realized that you don’t need to break a bank just to look presentable. No matter how cheap or expensive your clothes are, if it looks good on you, it really does! So, it doesn’t really matter.
Great Ukay-Ukay Finds in Baguio Night Market
Here – you’ll never know what you’re going to find. What you just need is to have patience to rummage through racks and racks of used clothing. Do this until you find the treasure! It’s really fun—kind of like a treasure hunting! Below are my great ukay-ukay finds in Baguio Night Market. Each costs Php 50.00 only! Just imagine.
QUALITY CLOTHES IF YOU ARE LUCKY, and patient!
They are all cheap, but never think for a second that they can’t be in par with the quality of big fashion brands. It is sure you have to scavenge around but once you find the one, your next fabulous OOTD is already set.
