    Shops near Mines View Park: Warm Clothes Shopping

    by yellowbell Written Jul 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are just too many shops to choose from. Ask for at least 10-15% discount and you're on your way.

    For the very cheap jackets or clothes, ask if they're brand new or just a nice hand-me-down (ukay-ukay is a local term for slightly used clothes shop)

    What to buy: chenille scarves - P90
    bonnets - P25 for kids; P35 for adults (to complete your rapper look)
    knitted strappy blouses - P50

    by Enchy Written May 20, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop is like the typical department stores in Manila. So if you forgot to buy somethings from home, this is the place to be.

    What to buy: Aside from SM City you can go souvenir shopping in the parks in Baguio City were souvenirs are more affordable.

    Best products in Baguio are:

    - Cardigans
    - Wood Carvings
    - Strawberries and Fresh Veggies
    - Silver
    - Ube, Peanut Brittle, etc.

    Ibay Silvershop: Silvers and Beads

    by mijyay Written Feb 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ibay has three major silver shops in the city but their main shop is located at the Rotary Club bulding.

    Their products are really nice but not really unique. The items are displayed in glass cases so it's easy to check out the products.

    Pilak silvershop on the other hand is located in front of the Botanical Garden. Haven't been inside but people who've been there say they have nice products.

    What to buy: If you like silver more than gold, you'll be happy to know that Baguio City has two major silver shops with branches located in major areas of the city.

    Ibay is one of them and there also Pilak. They have cute designs not exactly unique but cute nonetheless.

    Beads are also in abundance so if you're a bead collector, you could get some really colorful beads to take home with you.

    What to pay: For small items, expect to shell out as low as P110. For the big items with semi-precious stones, prices could go as high as P4,000

    They don't have names: Wagwagan Rules!

    by mijyay Written Feb 13, 2004

    I can't really give a name of a store since a lot of them don't carry names. It's up to you to familiarize yourself with the many stalls and shops selling second hand clothes otherwise known as "ukay-ukay" or "wagwag" literally translated as digging inside boxes and shaking the clothes pulled out from the boxes or from the racks.

    These shops could be found virtually anywhere in the city which is why it's now called the "Wagwagan Capital of the Philippines".

    While second hand clothing had always been in existence, their numbers weren't that many. It was only a few years ago when it became a phenomenon. When people from Manila came up to Baguio not only for the climate but to buy cheap but brand name articles (clothes, bags, shoes), virtually everybody wanted to join in.

    What to buy: If you happen to lose your bags and all your clothes, don't worry about it. There are lots of shops selling cheap but branded items.

    What to pay: If you know how to haggle, you could buy good clothes from P80 to P250. I know of some who could drive down prices to as low as P50

    City Market: Sandals to Bananas !!

    by herzog63 Updated Jul 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get just about anything you want in the City Market!! You will have to bargain most of the time to get the right price. Sometimes I've been surprised by the vendors offering me a low price without even asking.

    What to buy: Even if you don't buy anything the Central Market is a wonderful place to wander and talk with people and just take in the ambience of the place. Some people feel nervous inside as the lighting isn't the best and there are lot's of people. If you feel nervous in those situations don't bring any valuables with you. I've never had a problem there and have visited many times. When you are in the middel of the market it can be tricky finding a way out as there are a maze of stalls!! Just ask someone how to get out and they will point the way. Oh yea... There are many entrances and quite often you will go out in a different area than you went in on. You might want to bring a map of the city with you if it's your first time in the area.

    Good Shepherds: Strawberry jams and peanut brittles

    by birgitte Written Sep 9, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A trip to Baguio is not complete without lugging home fruit preserves and peanut brittle from Good Shepherds. Good Shepherds is a cooperative run by convent nuns. The cold weather of Baguio makes it possible for strawberries and blueberries to be cultivated here. Baguio is a major source of strawberries for the rest of Luzon.

    While you can buy Good Shepherds products in the city market and stands elsewhere, I would recommend visiting the original store. They have a good viewing deck.

    What to buy: Truth be told, the goods would probably not be up to foreign standards but if you are planning to have pasalubongs for your Filipino friends when you get down from Baguio, you cant go wrong with the fruit jams. Peanut brittle is probably one of the leading causes of tooth decay and diabetes but Good Shepherds make some of the best brittles (if not the best...... they are able to make it crunchy right ...... its one of those that you know cant be very good for you but you cant just stop yourself from munching and munching). So give it a try. One thing good about the strawberry and blueberry jams though, they look and taste home made. When you open a jar, you still see them using wax to make sure the jam stays fresh longer just as they did from time immemorial. I hope this means that they are not using a lot of artificial preservative but is relying on other traditional ways to keep the jams as fresh as when they first cooked it.

    What to pay: very reasonable prices.
