"Ukay-Ukay" A Well-Liked Thrift Shop In Philippines

In the Philippines, there is this boutique shop that is well-liked by every Filipino, the "Ukay-Ukay". It actually comes from the Visayan word "Ukay" which means "to dig", basically you have to dig the piled clothes if you wanted to look for a good dress or an outfit.

Ukay-Ukay is basically a thrift shop that sells second-hand items such as clothes, bags, shoes, and is usually imported from overseas. What Filipinos loved about Ukay-Ukay is that the price is very affordable and if you get lucky you'll find quality and branded items.

Together with her cousins, we flocked to this Ukay-Ukay shop. I also tried to look for short pants but there's no size that fits well on me, so I took photos of them instead.

Largely of the items displayed in this Ukay-Ukay shop are mostly for women. As you can see in most photos, there are some men but women were dominantly shoppers.
