Don’t let the exteriors of Bayanihan Shopping Center fool you. Underneath the antique-looking façade of this former hotel lies a score of wagwagan shops or ukay-ukay in Baguio that sell clothes, shoes, bags, and even old toys and bedding. It is primarily located near Burnham Park, Hotel Veniz, and Maharlika Center.
Ukay-ukay in Baguio is not just located at the night market in Baguio only; thus, this old hotel, which hails back to the 1930s, had made a revival of sorts when it opened its doors to ukay-ukay stalls. Most shops specialize in clothes, shoes, or bags, with a few stalls selling other items. Clothes at this ukay-ukay in Baguio can go as low as PhP25 per piece for sale items or PhP50 to PhP100 per piece for new arrivals. Items can be pricier if the stall specializes in “selected” items or items that have been pre-selected based on their brand and quality. A few bag shops carry authentic brands such as Louis Vuitton and other designer bags.
Since the stalls of this ukay-ukay in Baguio are inside a building, they can get stuffy. If you are allergic to dust, wear a face mask. If you have asthma, take your medicine before going to this or at the night market in Baguio.
January 2024 Update: Bayanihan Shopping Center is permanently closed. But don’t worry. You can visit the Maharlika Livelihood Center for possible replacement.
