thrift finds

another delayed post is of Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit stationery pieces i found at a thrift shop (ukay-ukay here in the Philippines) in Marikina. while commuting from my son's school for an orientation last month, i happened to pass by this nondesript shop and here's my stash:

undated weekly planners, sticky note type, P50 each (more or less $1)

mechanical pencils with 2 refills, P25 each (roughly $.50)

scissors with cap, P25
you just have to bring a hand sanitizer with you as the items were a bit dusty. but all came in cello packaging so the actual items are still in good condition. some of the weekly planners had bent covers though, so not good for OC people. there were also other desk related items such as planners/organizers, white boards, cork boards, folders among others. the shop is not airconditioned, so i recommend a foldable fan to take along if you're one who isn't up for the heat.

for those interested to drop by the place it's directly across Sta.Lucia Mall along Marcos Highway in Marikina, just below the foot bridge.
