The Thrift Life


In the Philippines, thrift shops are more commonly known as "Ukay-ukay." Ukay-ukay shopping requires a lot of patience, since there are so many clothes to choose from but it's definitely worth it because some of the best cheap clothing finds are found here! I'm proud to say that 60% of the clothes I currently own came from the shops in this list. I'll include pictures of my finds and their price if my memory permits! Looking forward to update this list if I discover more Ukay stores.

Quezon City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Very accessible to people living in Quezon City and a common stopover for commuters taking the LRT. Ukay-ukay stores in Anonas Station reach up to four floors! I gotta say that most of the 60% Ukay clothes that I own came from here. Denim jacket: 75 php Floral dress: 50 php Violet corduroy: 50 php pesos Pastel yellow inner: 30 php

Baguio, Philippines • Recommendation • 

It's only in Baguio Night Market where I found sweaters and parkas as cheap as 20 to 100 pesos. Outerwear is a big deal here so they sell a lot of that for a very affordable price here. They also have a wide selection of quirky polos. These are some of mine and my boyfriend's finds! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Green jacket: 100 php Purple polo: 80 php 🙋🏻‍♂️ Denim long-sleeved polo: 100 Inner polo: 80 php

Tagaytay, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Most people drive to Tagaytay just to visit the Ukay-Ukay Hub. I personally loved browsing through their huge collection. Most of the Uniqlo graphic shirts I own now came from here which I bought for less than 100 php.

It's worth the effort to brave through Recto for the Ukay shops located inside Isetann mall. If you like dresses and unique casual wear, this is the place to go!

Quezon City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

I actually gave Fashion Delite a shoutout in my Cubao list as my go-to when I'm in the area. Here are items that I bought on sale. I rely on this Ukay whenever I'm looking for something smart casual. Prices here are relatively expensive compared to other Ukay stores I've been to. Make sure you come here during when items are on sale! Longsleeve polo: 100 php Loose black polo: 65 php

Baliuag, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Whenever I visit my mom in the province, I make sure I pass by this one Ukay-Ukay shop located at Bayan ng Baliuag. It's easy to spot, since it's the only existing Ukay in the area. It has a second floor with exclusive items, which are more expensive than the ones in the first floor. I snagged this jacket here for only 100 pesos! ❤️
