Weekend Shopping in Dapitan

It’s almost Christmas! If you want to do your Christmas shopping,  do it now. For bargain-hunters, I recommend that you go to Dapitan.  Shops there have a wide variety of items:  from Christmas decors to household items  to even some of the weirdest things you’ll ever see.

Last weekend, Hubby and I went there to look for Christmas decors.  It was a bit crowded.  I guess everyone had the same idea! But I was able to bring home some wonderful decors.

Here are some photos of my weekend bargain-hunting. Enjoy!

The capiz bowls-turned-vases are so  cute!

The Christmas tree ornaments are made from resin and are between 50-80 bucks a piece.

I’m not a big fan of giant Santas but I’m sure these cute ones will appeal to Santa collectors.

Hmmm… I don’t know exactly what this is. Is it a dwarf taking a dump in a pot of gold? In the words of our 4-year-old nephew:  “What the?”

I bought these 7 items  for 100 pesos! I love Dapitan!

Finally, below is my Merry Christmas Tree, part of my latest Dapitan loot.  Isn’t it just adorable?
