Thrift Easy and Breezy: Where to Ukay Online!

Thrift Easy and Breezy: Where to Ukay Online!

Mynila Team December 27, 2018 Lifestyle

With ‘ukay-ukay’ (thrift shops) popping up like wildflowers at every corner of the Philippines, it’s safe to say that thrift shopping is reclaiming glory and glares specifically amongst the millennial.

More and more young people are starting to opt for shopping secondhand and vintage clothing because aside from environmental and sustainability factors, it’s usually a blissful journey of scoring clothing items in perfect condition for as low as 5php and feeling the satisfaction of unearthing a gorgeous piece for half its original price – it’s a win-win!

However, if you’re one of those people who find thrift shopping time-consuming and a bit of a hassle, the rise of the modern day technology now lets you shop without leaving the cozy couch – skipping the usually sweltering, narrow aisles of room filled with thousands of used clothes and the tiring hanger-flipping plus the funny smell – it’s one clear indication why you should try online thrift shopping!

Here are 5 of our favorite online thrift shops on Instagram to start with!
