Nowadays thrift shop are very trending especially when they do the live selling.

"Are you familiar with ukay-ukay?"

"Do you bought from ukay-ukay?"

"How much does it cost?"

"Is it really affordable instead buying in malls?"

"Is it safe?"

One of my stress reliever is going to a thrift shop not just to buy, sometimes its my way of entertaining myself. If you have the patience in choosing or looking into it one by one, you'll get a better one. Sometimes you'll see a branded one with cheaper price compared to malls.

I'm a ukay-ukay lover, I love second hand especially when the item is like new, no signs of usage for short in a good condition, sometimes there's still a tag price attached on it for just affordable prices. Thrift shop stores nowadays are everywhere!

I'm not into live selling, most of the time I find it difficult because of my size just why I prefer visiting an ukay store. One time I had an experience ordering through online, the expectations vs reality. The items are really so good but when I wore it, looks inappropriate  or didn't fits for me. That's why I just ordered once only in a live selling.

Here in our city, there are a lot of thrift shop. Most of my office outfits, my son even my husband are just bought in a thrift shop. Whenever I bought something, I poured it with hot water then laundry it before wearing to kill germs and viruses. We never know who wear it from the past so safety first.

Are you familiar with Ukay-Ukay?

I know most of you are already familiar with it but not all people bought in ukay.

Do you bought from ukay -ukay?

Yes, most of the time I choose to bought in ukay rather than malls. I find it more cheaper to find aome branded items.

How much does it cost?

For new arrivals, expect for a higher price. Sometimes they are on sale like 3 for 100.00php (napagpilian na) sometimes 10.00php.

Is it really affordable instead buying in malls?

In my opinion I just want to be more practical, I used to buy in malls but now that I'm already a mom and my budget is just good for our needs it is affordable for me.

Is it safe?

Honestly, before wearing it we should washed it first. When corona virus hit us, ukay-ukay store are one of the business suffer from it. They said it can be transmitted through this. During lockdown ukay-ukay or thrift shop business boomed in social media like Facebook and Instagram for some online live selling.

Here are some of the items I bought in Ukay:

But before anything else, THANKS to my sponsors 🙏

Converse shoes for my son, bought it for just 200.00php
Asics shoes for my son, bought it also for just 150.00php

Some of my outfits that I bought in different ukay stores that ranges from 100-300.00php

CLOSING THOUGHT:

Whatever we wear it's our own decision as long as we are confident wearing it. It's not the price nor the brand itself.
