Japan Surplus Shops : The Trending Shoppers' Destination in the Philippines

"Ukay" is the Tagalog/Filipino word for secondhand/pre-owned items.  The purchasing power of Philippine peso has declined compared to decades ago, my fellow-countrymen has always been resourceful on stretching the household's budget.  And to this, Japan Surplus Shops came to the scene. The shops are widespread in Metro Manila before but now have conquered even the small towns in the provinces.

The shops do not only offer some pre-owned clothing or bags but also furniture like cabinets (anti-termite-treated), golf clubs, shoes, dinnerware (Noritake, Arcopal, Pyrex are some good finds), electronic equipment - amplifiers, dvd players as well as speakers.  There are both in the extremes, from the finest to the simplest. 

The quality? Spill-out your meticulous side and you can get items that looks like never been used before. In fact, the tags are still hanging.

The items are stand-out for their uniqueness yet reasonably priced. People from all walks of life have been their good patrons.  

I also found these bags there:

Authentic Oroton Evening Mesh Bag
If you have not tried it yet, indulge and see how addicting it could be.  I hope to have given you an interesting introduction on Japan Surplus Shop.
