The Dapitan Arcade in Quezon City may be the best place to do that. It has been dubbed as bagsakan or the place to be if you want overruns of export-quality home finds.
Located at Dapitan corner Kanlaon Street, the tiangge has been the go-to place of those who want to decorate their homes on a budget for decades. Some items still even have tags on them, while others, if given some more TLC would surely pass as a branded item.
If you’re bargain hunting in Dapitan over the weekend, here are some tips:
Bring An EcobagSay no to plastics! It’s best to bring an ecobag or a cloth bag because they’re sturdier and can hold more items.
Book A CarThere is street parking but we recommend just booking a car so you won’t have to constantly think of your car’s safety.
Scout The Whole ArcadeSome stores supply the same item but at a cheaper price, so make a round first and survey which stores sell the items you’re looking for at the best price.
Haggle!While the prices are already super cheap, it’s part of the fun! Negotiate your price, but don’t be rude.
Beware Of The SeasonItems also change per season. And yes, they have super cheap holiday decors. If you haven’t shopped here before, try it out when the ber-months come!
Bring A Face TowelThere’s no air-conditioning here. Expect that you will sweat a lot when you shop here, especially when you’re walking around with several loot bags!
