I have always been skeptical in buying in thrift stores, or known here as Ukay-Ukay, because my mom keeps telling me that the items being sold are from dead people (I would immediately think of ghosts).All of those beliefs changed after watching Dollastic and Coolirpa in Youtube. I became fascinated in thrifting because of them. I also thought of it as a way of recycling which could benefit the Earth since the fashion industry is one of the large contributors in pollution (learned that from coolirpa).
I was so excited when my dad paid us a visit and suddenly offered to take my sister and I to go thrifting. Today was the day! However, my sister didn’t come with us since she has an exhibit for school.
My Dad was supposed to take me in a thrift store near his house but since I wasn’t feeling well we went to a store near my grandparent’s house. We went thrifting in a store inside our subdivision and they’re on a last day sale and everything was P10-20 pesos. I was like “WOW” and hurriedly checked clothes. My dad helped me search since almost all of the items are for women. And so here is my first-ever thrift haul.
