Divisoria in December
Monday, 10 December 2012 by forgotten girl
My family and I (minus the kids) went to Divisoria yesterday to do some shopping. My sister did some Christmas shopping and I looked for crafty supplies and trinkets. We thought there weren’t going to be a lot of people there because Manny Pacquiao had a fight but we were very wrong. I’m telling you, I’m not going back there again during December… the crowd was just wow and the weather was humid, I was sweating like a pig the whole time. I wasn’t able to shop comfortably. But despite, the trip was still worth it. I was able to get some really great loots.
First thing that I got is this pack of resealable plastics for my cds. Haha! The store that I bought this from is usually closed on Sundays but it was open yesterday so I grabbed the chance. I got this for about P230 ($5.75) for a pack of 500.
Next, my mom was supposed to show me where the store Good Morning is located. We did find it but it was closed. Going there, we found these stalls on the sidewalk selling native products and Christmas decors. I was able to get these bundles of abaca twine (I’m not sure if they’re abaca, just assuming here. ) in different colors. I didn’t just grabbed the colors that attracted me and didn’t haggle much anymore because the sun was scorching hot. Original price was P35 per bundle but I got 3 bundles for P100 ($2.50).
We then proceeded to Divisoria Mall. This is one of the to-go-to places in Divisoria if you’re planning on buying wholesale and if you’re buying favors and prizes for kiddie parties. I actually saw a lot of things I want to buy but I didn’t feel comfortable waiting for a long time before getting assisted and then guarding your bag heavily because a lot of people are bumping on you on all sides. So, yeah, sadly I didn’t buy anything from there.
On our way back to 999 Mall (where we were parked) I dropped by one of the cheap toy stores along Sta. Elena street to buy my dear Bailey what? Bubbles!!! Hahaha. These are the stores where you can buy cheap plastic toys and stuff for party bag fillers. And since Bailey is a good
boy dog, he’s going to share his bubble toys with my niece and nephew. Got the bubbles for P75 ($1.87) for a pack of 24.
From 999 mall I got faux leather headbands for me and my niece, bracelets for my fangirl friends, nail art stickers. The headband costs 3 for P100 ($2.50) but I haggled and told them I’ll get 6 for the price of P90 for 3, total of P180 ($4.5o). The bracelets I got for 10 for P200 ($5), original price was 4 for P100 ($2.50). I got two pieces for free and they’re really nice, too. The beads are made of some kind of stone, I think, and they green… perfect for my fangirl friends. The nail are stickers I got for P100 for 5. I didn’t buy much and I didn’t haggle anymore because the saleslady assisting me was ill-tempered. I didn’t like her. Anyway, here are photos of my loots…
I’m definitely going back to Divisoria… soon… but definitely not this month! First week of January maybe? Oh, I can’t wait!!! Still have lots to buy and stores to visit!
