Ukay ukay Stores in Metro Manila to Support This National Thrift Shop Day

You don't need a specific day to shop for thrift items, but there is a special day dedicated to supporting local thrift shops in your community. Every Aug. 17, National Thrift Shop Day is observed to “raise awareness for charitable organizations” such as consignment stores, secondhand stores, resale shops, and hospice shops, among others.”

Traditionally, people would volunteer to sort out items and donate items for sale. Buying secondhand items from local ukay-ukay merchants, on the other hand, will benefit them significantly.
