Thrift Store, The Angry Pig (but Happy)

I think the name of this store is “Conbef Trading” but I can’t help but refer it to the drawing on the “angry pig, but happy” at its entrance. This thrift store is packed to the brim, you can barely move between racks. And because of that, I don’t frequent this often, except when they are having a sale on their shoes. Their shoes are locate at the wall near their entrance so I don’t have to wade through the tight racks. And they carry really good quality and branded shoes. I once spotted a pair of Prada flats, but I did not have money that time. The price range in this store is also quite high (except when they’re on sale). Expect to spend P100 to P300 per piece during new arrivals.

I bought these pair of Helmut Lang sandals there.

The store is located near Cocomall, along Osmena Blvd.

It’s the weekend once again, and a along weekend at that. If you are itching to have some thrifting adventures, I have some tips and guide here.

Happy weekend!
