Where to Shop this Christmas (Part 2)

During Christmas or Pasko, people do not only buy Christmas decors and gifts but also new things for the home. In our case, new pillows and chair pads are what we need as well as gifts for our delivery truck drivers and aides. In this blog post, I will be sharing two places worth visiting in Quezon City.

Commonwealth Market
You may think about meat and fish products. Yes, there are many vendors selling beef, chicken and fish as well as fruits and vegetables. But the Commonwealth Market is a big place. It has a number of vendors selling various products such as household items, children’s toys and clothes.

But what we buy at the Commonwealth Market are chair and sofa pads. We already bought two sets of this in different colors and design. We just needed one more color for Christmas. The only color missing is the color blue. Now, the designs may be the usual or common. But if you look at the other side, it’s just a plain color wherein you can add accent pillows to make it more pleasing to the eyes.

Aside from that, we also buy house clothes, clothes, and children’s toys as gift for our truck drivers and other workers every Christmas. Since the Commonwealth Market is big and has a number of stalls, you will be able to haggle and purchase your desired items at a lower price.

Lastly, in Where to Shop this Christmas Part 1 I advised you to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Same thing should be done here but for the parking, it will be easier. There are many parking spaces available.

SM Department Store
Sure, prices are high at malls. If you buy at flea markets, three throw pillow covers will only cost you P100 – 150. But if you double check and if you are looking for unique and beautiful designs, there are affordable items lying around especially during SALE.

Pillows

And, we did!

As mentioned earlier, we bought three sets of chair and sofa pads – red, green and blue. The throw pillows we found here will be used as accents. There are others that we bought before; some in flea markets (Divisoria and Baclaran) while some in department stores. All in all, we have four sets of throw pillows and three chair/ sofa pads that we can mix and match depending on the occasion.

Christmas Shopping doesn’t have to be a headache. You just have to know what, where and when to buy in order to save money.

Happy Christmas shopping!
