Whether we admit it or not, there’s a satisfaction when we find pre-loved stuff in second-hand shops than brand new items in malls. There’s a thrill in looking for great clothes in racks and piles that are priced at 50php for three. For the thrifty fashionista and vintage items aficionado, second-hand shops are their saving grace.
Cubao houses great thrift finds and they are just near the MRT station. Here are places you can drop by:
Fashion de Lite
General Aguinaldo Ave, Cubao, Quezon City, Metro Manila
Looking for OOTD for your overseas trip on a winter? Fashion de Lite has authentic and branded jackets that would be worth your while. But of course, like most ukay-ukay, their products are just limited so always watch out when they have new arrivals.
