There are a lot of thrift stores in the metro, some big, some small. But most of the time, I rummage for great finds in either cubao (near my home) or makati cinema square (near my workplace). I go for familiarity and proximity given my quite on-the-go lifestyle.
Yesterday, boyf and i found time to visit the one at the corner of EDSA and Kamuning Rd. I planned to score some vintage bags and nice cover ups while boyf wanted to look for polos. Before we go thrift-shopping, we always have a list of items to look for. So that we save time and effort. Bottom-line, we know what we want. Boyf always go for what he really wants, while I always end up going after something else (teehee.. fickle me). Anyway, here's what we scored that day:
1. This one's quite pricey but I couldn't let go of it while sorting the things i just grabbed from the ones i really wanna keep. I got it for Php 180 (approx. $4)
2. These set of padded blouses the SUPER bargain! I got these at three item for Php 10 (approx. 22 cents for the three!) AWESOME, right?
So yeah. Obviously, I didn't go with what was originally planned. Its just that, I got distracted and found myself scoring more looking for nice tops than vintage bags. I got a poncho and that's counted as a cover up anyway :)
Oh, will post what boyf got in my next post.
Later lovelies <3
