Cheap. Affordable. Sustainable. These are just some of the reasons why fashion enthusiasts prefer thrifting from small outlets over shopping in upscale malls. A thrift shop, also known as “ukay-ukay” in the Philippines, is a boutique spot that sells pre-loved garments from shirts, pants, footwear, and vintage accessories. For as low as P5, you can score a good item that can last you a year or two. If you’re patient enough to go through racks of clothes, then you’re most likely to find a hidden luxury gem for a budget-friendly price.


Tagaytay, one of the most popular summer destinations in the country, is slowly becoming a shopping mecca of the south. Among the stores making a name in the shopping department is Ukay-Ukay Hub, a thrift haven that is home to various boutique stores that offer secondhand clothes. Whether you're looking to upgrade your wardrobe or just want to indulge yourself in retail therapy, this thrift shop in Tagaytay is worth a drive!

What’s On Sale

Unlike other apparel stores, Ukay-Ukay Hub doesn’t have a fixed size and price for the items they sell. It varies depending on the day and time of your visit. The good thing is that they have a lot of fashionable pieces to choose from. Youtuber Mimiyuuh, who recently visited the shop with photographer Shaira Luna, IV of Spades member Blaster Silonga, and artist Crystal Jobli, copped an affordable ‘90s-inspired maong and stylish multi-colored shirt from the store. Vlogger Thrift With Me, who religiously documents her ukay-ukay adventures on YouTube, bagged a striped pullover shirt for only P50. For male fashion mavens, you can score quality everyday pants for P150 each just like content creator Ian Rustia.
