This time of the year is the season to shop. Big sale events are happening in every shopping mall and holiday bazaars. One of the best places where Filipinos shop is the tiangge. Titas and moms flock the pasilios of the tiangge, hoping to get the best deals and finds for their on-a-budget gift giving. Plus, local merchants thrive on these marketplaces.
Unfortunately, going out and getting elbow to elbow with other shoppers may not be suited during this time of pandemic. Luckily many have taken their stores to the Internet, offering a more convenient and safer way to shop this Yuletide season.
To help you tick off items in your Christmas list, here are some online tiangge and flea markets that are worth visiting.
If you feel at home at Taytay’s prime shopping destination, then Taytay Local is the one to visit. Check out their pieces from loungewear to semi-formal dressing for kids and ladies. Plus, the store also sells bedding sets and handcrafted abaca table mats.
The online version of Manila City’s famous flea market offers as many items one could in its physical version. Divisoria Online can connect to a number of suppliers for whatever it is you’re looking for, whether gadget accessories, beauty tools, clothing, or even fresh flowers.
Launched this year, TutuBuy is the e-commerce version of the other Filipino market place in Divisoria, Tutuban Center. On the website, shoppers will find great deals on kitchenware, sewing materials, gardening essentials, and party needs.
Needing last minute Christmas decor or looking for high on quality and low in price gift ideas? Smart shoppers would know that the place to be is at Dapitan Arcade. With a smorgasbord of home furnishing and ornaments, from Morrocan lamps and wooden dinnerware to ceramic vases and elegant planters, this online store is a tita’s paradise.
Now go and let your fingers do the shopping!
