    my hubby and the wall hangings

    There are a lot of small stalls that sell everything around baguio.

And lots and lots of food.

    by bike_packer Updated Jan 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop sells flowering plants and flowers in exploding different colors. A real feast for the eyes that really enticed me to take beautiful macro shotsof different flowers at the sorroundings. No wonder, Baguio is a major source of flowers for major ocassions in the country.

    Check my travelouges for the colorful pictures.

    What to buy: Buy flowers for your sweetie pie. Or, buy flowering plants but just be sure that they grow in your place at such a higher temperature. Ask the shop owner for recommendations.

    St. Louis university: Silver is a bargain

    Jeepney Silver filigree

    At St. Louis university students learn the craftsmanship to manufacture very beautiful silver filigree jewelry or decorations.

    One of the symbols of the Philippines is the "Jeepney", a public transportation utility, which had its origin after WW II, when the Americans left numerous Jeeps in the country. Modified to carry up to 10 or 15 passengers, these Jeepneys are an asset to any city in the Philippines.

    It's a convent near the Mines View Park (just ask the people there for directions). The Good Shepherd is famous for their Ube Jam because theirs is the most yummy! Plus the fact that you are sure that the Ube Jam you bought there is freshly made unlike if you just buy in the markets.

    What to buy: Ube Jam

    What to pay: The ube jam usually costs Php 250.00 ++

    Baguio furniture in local home

    There are wood-carving "shops" lined along the path to Baguio city. Each shop specializes in beautiful wood furniture styled in local customs. This chair was a great accent to an open-air living room, but it would make a wonderful fixture in an English garden or an Art Deco office.

    The items are large, but can be customized. Prices are reasonable and there are numerous ways to transport it home. My only regret is that I didn't buy this chair....

    What to buy: Great earthy dining tables
    Wooden patio-style chairs
    Statue of local man and animal

    Export Processing Zone: Cheap Goods

    by JaneCajuguiran Written Feb 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During christmas season and shortly after, the Export Processing Zone is open to the public for shopping. Several different goods are up for sale - shoes, clothes, furniture, watches, bags, toys, etc. etc. etc. These are mostly export overruns. I normally find myself going to that place at least twice on every trip. Can't resist the temptation not to buy. It beckons!

    Good Shepherd Convent: Craving for sweets

    by JaneCajuguiran Written Feb 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're like me and my family, you'd probably be craving for something sweet most of the time. To satisfy this craving, we head on to the Good Shepherd Convent a few meters from Mines view Park and Wright Park. You get to eat good food and help send kids to school. Proceeds from the sales are used for funding the education of the scholars who incidentally also help in the cooking and marketing of these products.

    What to buy: We normally buy jam or syrup (both made from strawberry or blueberry), cookies (I implore you try the angel cookies), peanut brittle, bread. Best of all, try their strawberry ice creamy. It's sooooooo deliciously mouthwatering!

    Most shops: Don't buy at the Mines View Park for souvenirs!!!

    by joiwatani Written Sep 6, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Okay if you don't have time to shop around at the Magsaysay Market(close to Session Road), then buy your souvenirs at Mines View Park. However, you will save a lot of money if you shop at the back of the market at Magsaysay Avenue. Just get inside the market and you can see an array of souvenirs from baskets, handwoven clothes, t-shirts, nuts, wood works, etc. There are so many stores there that each and everyone compete with each other. When you buy one, try to haggle and bargain first. This is like the night market in Italy that every seller tells you almost double the price of the item. So, when they tell you it's two hundred pesos for a souvenir, make sure to cut the price in half and start bargaining from there.

    Don't be fooled around because the item you are buying for can be found in many stores. There are also other stores at the Maharlika Building.

    What to pay: Bargain half of the price the vendor gave you and start from there!

    The cane I bought for my mom

    Maharlika has a lot of souvenir items that you can find- from knitted sweaters, hats, sweets, baskets, wood carvings, purses, belts, backpacks made of rattan, the Last Supper wood carving, etc. If you are looking for anything that is made of wood, then the best place to search is Maharlika.

    I went to the shopping arcade at Maharlika just to find a cane for my mother. And, I found a really good one, made of mahogany so it is very sturdy and well-made!

    What to buy: This is an unusual buy for me but I bought a cane. My aunts and cousins bought souvenir items like little purses, key chains, knitted sweaters, etc.

    What to pay: bI paid P350 ($7.00)

    Just in case you went and visited the Mansion House. The guards are actually selling Filipino pride t-shirts and "Office of the President of the Philippines" pins. Just ask one of the guards and they have boxes of t-shirts in their posts stashed in a box. You can choose from small, medium, large and extra large sizes. The t-shirts comes in black, blue and yellow.

    I bought a yellow one and I loved it. In fact, I wore it when I came back to the United States!

    What to pay: I paid P350.00

    Magsaysay Market: The Magsaysay Market

    by joiwatani Written Apr 27, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is an arrray of local shops on Magsaysay Avenue. At the front of the the roads are basically stores owned and managed by local residents. They sell souvenir items from woven Igorot backpacks made of rattan, Igorot woven purses and bags, the famous "walis" (broom) made of tiger grass, peanut brittles, the big carved spoons and forks, peanut butter, strawberry jams, carved rosaries, key chains, the famous barrel Igorot guy (you have to remove the barrel and see a naked man!), snake bamboos, carved Last Supper, etc.

    There are also vegetable vendors in the middle part of the stalls. They sell fresh cabbages, carrots, lettuces, cucumber, strawberries and pineapples. These are usually a sell-out to visitors going down to Manila or to the Ilocos provinces.

    Make sure to haggle when you pick a souvenir item. The prices usually vary so make sure to ask for discounts.

    What to buy: Souvenir items and fresh vegetables

    What to pay: You must haggle to get a better price especially when you buy in bulk. It really depends on what you buy

    Kayang Street Market: Kayang Street Market

    by joiwatani Written Apr 27, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the place where local residents buy their daily needs like sugar, coffee ("barako"- coffee beans roasted and grinded), meat, vegetables, fish, etc.

    There are so many small stalls in here. The local students also come here because it is way cheaper than those found at the grocery stores.

    There are also shops that sell clothes and other items.

    The street is flocked by vendors especially in the evening when the local residents come and pick up the food they are going to cook that night.

    Haggling is usually the name of the game here.

    The market is kind of wet at the fish and meat section. Sometimes, it gets smelly because of the fresh fish they sell. Be careful as it gets slippery.

    Also, be careful of pickpockets, too.

    What to buy: Fresh vegetables, grocery items, fresh meat, fresh fish, dried fish, souvenir items, clothes, fresh flowers, etc.

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy.

    The shop inside tam-wan village

    What to buy: They sell special wine made from local ingredients. One of their wine flavor is coffee. It was absolutely different. It taste sweet, recommended for non-drinkers. :) The fermentation process takes about 2 years so, it'll be another 2 years before I can have one of these goodies again.

    What to pay: 200 pesos per bottle.
