Looking to redecorate in quarantine? Dapitan Arcade has got you.
Over the years, the beloved Quezon City marketplace has grown to become a treasure trove of almost everything a home needs – from kitchenware, decor, to plant essentials – at a quarter of their retail price.
Originally a dumping ground of export-quality goods along Dapitan Street, the tiangge first became popular for cheap Christmas decorations. When word started to go around about how good the deals were, the stalls transferred to a three-story building on the same street to create what we know now as Dapitan Arcade.
Going through its 3rd transformation, the marketplace is now aided by the online shopping platform, Sulit.ph, to create an online counterpart to the shopping haven. For those looking to spruce up their homes at home, you can now conveniently do all the digging for amazing wares all online through Dapitan Arcade‘s website.
Here’s a quick rundown on what you can get:
Locally produced wooden round plates go for P170 online. Matching coasters are also available on the website for P65.
The favorite Stall No. 49 has also shifted onto the online platform, selling their multi-colored Moroccan lamps. They sell them in different varieties, ranging from P2,200 to P6,000.
Plantitos and plantitas don’t have to look any further to find new planters for their indoor gardens. For as low as P350, you can get quality wicker pots that will help bring new life into your homes.
