If you seek for top quality items, this is the place you go to. It’s far less stuffy and cramped compared to the usual ukay-ukay stores as it is more spacious and well-ventilated. You’ll enjoy digging through the piles and sifting through racks of clothes because they have impressive finds!

This little haven has a good selection of imported items including clothes, shoes, and bags. Though you can get a bargain for as low as P10, some items are relatively pricey compared to other ukays but still cheap considering a big portion of their haul is imported.
