It's official. Some of our favorite stars really, truly enjoy buying second-hand items as much as we mortals. Take it from the beautiful John Lapus and two of YES! magazines chosen fashionistas, Angel Aquino and Agot Isidro, who all speak the unspeakable: having great fun bargain shopping at Baguio's ukay-ukay!
John Lapus, host of Showbiz Central, has been to Baguio's ukay-ukay seven times in three years.
John, or Sweet as friends call him, admits he was shocked when he first visited Baguio's now hot ukay-ukay stores. He actually considered it his "worst shopping ever!" because of the heat and cramped spaces and the disorganization of the place. But Sweet admits the experience was oh so enjoyable.
Says he: "When you see the people's reaction dahil artista kami, nasho-shock sila. They appreciate you for buying there. Nag-enjoy ako kasi hindi ako makapaniwala na you can buy six-months outfit with your P5,000!"
He adds that only ukay-ukay clothes can be cheaper than the cost of dry cleaning them.
