Dapitan Rookie

I may be the last person who knows about the amazing finds at Dapitan, but in case you are clueless like me, here’s a place worth visiting. There is a street off Banawe Avenue in Quezon City that is called Dapitan. It’s a treasure-trove of household items that cheapies-with-taste, such as myself, and my friend who recommended it (Thanks, Emily), will absolutely enjoy. If it had not been for the heat last Saturday, I might have spent more time bargain hunting. But Edric was with me, which was a good thing, because his threshold for summer heat is very low. So we were in and out of Dapitan in a little over an hour. 

Here are some stores that caught my eye:

Here’s a guy that definitely caught my attention! Oh, that’s my handsome husband, pointing at a birdcage!

Here are some of the items I ended up buying: 

Jars for my outdoor lights project (P90 each) 

 Milk jar (P100)  

Wooden tray (P50)  

Small ramekins (P30 each)  

Sugar bowls (P50 each) 

Not bad, eh? And I didn’t even do much haggling because the prices weren’t expensive to begin with. I will be going back soon (on a day that’s not so hot!)

      Certain things are cheaper and certain things they don’t seem to have in Divisoria 🙂 I think it’s worth visiting!

  3. Hi Ms. Joy! Thanks for sharing this. I go to Dapitan almost every quarter to check out the goods, because they change every 3-4 months. Nice to see that it already changed from the last time I went! Time to schedule another trip. 🙂
