Ceramic décor and dinnerware are the easiest home pieces to buy, but not all are pocket-friendly. But do not fret, there are a number of shopping hot spots that offer high-quality products at good prices. Score great finds at these stores that might just be around your neighborhood! You can even have a go in bargaining your way to some great deals. 

Landmark


Inexpensive and decent quality plates, bowls, mugs, and glassware are spread throughout the home section of Landmark Department Store. Prices go as low as P50! It’s definitely a haven for designers and homemakers alike. Aside from their TriNoma and Makati branches, their newest branch just opened in Festival Mall, Alabang.

A11


Located in 2680 FB Harrison, the quiet, acacia-laned compound in Pasay City, is Artelano 11, or simply A11. It is comprised of four connected properties, one holding an eclectic collection of well-designed furniture pieces, as well as reimagined Filipino craft and home accesories sourced all over the world. It’s a treasure trove of finds, from French crockery to porcelain jars (as the dining wall that is decorated with dozens of different ceramic plates will give you a clue), and most of the prices are quite friendly—you can get finely made plates for a couple of hundred pesos each, along with coasters, cups and glasses sold as sets. 

Miniso


With the popularity of Japan stores around the Metro, count on Miniso to provide you with your home needs! Here, you can shop 'til you drop as their price ranges from P99-belowP1000 only!

Juan Luna Street


Depending on your comfort zone and if you could take the onslaught of traffic, Divisoria is the place to be for your kitchen needs! Juan Luna is the perfect street to hit if you have a food cart or a home-based pastry business, or a catering business. Check out the many side-by-side stores that offer everything that you need—from styro cups, plates, bowls in different sizes and shapes, to baking paraphernalia. Go outside, and walk through Juan Luna Street’s sidewalks, and there you will peddlers hawking ceramic dishes with floral prints that sell for as low as P35!

Dapitan Arcade


People usually go here during the Halloween, Christmas, or for their event and party needs. But did you know that Dapitan Arcade offers more than just holiday finds? Known as the bagsakan of specialized gifts and decor, this maze of stalls will have you shopping for every part of your house! From accessorizing your home, to kitchen and dining, and even your gardening needs, they have it all for you! You can even haggle your way to get the price that both you and the seller are comfortable with. Check out the multi-colored ceramic cake stands that sell in the stalls fronting Dapitan Street. 

Dapitan Arcade is located at 39 Dapitan corner Kanlaon St., Quezon City

CSM Philippines Inc.


Established in 1994 in Binan, Laguna, CSM Philippines Inc. sells home décor and dinnerware that has become known internationally. They are quite famous for their handmade product line of bone china, which is considered as the finest type of porcelain. Bone china has a beautiful white color and silky texture, compared to the grayish appearance of ordinary porcelain.

Pioneer Center


You might think that the Pioneer Center along Kapitolyo is just a place to  buy your groceries, but one section of the supermarket also sells dinnerware, glassware, serving dishes, and utensils, most of them around the P100 mark or lower! This humble store can complete your table setting as well as your cooking equipment, as it also has a selection of stainless steel cookware. You can even purchase cheap wine glasses here.

Pioneer Center is located at Pioneer Street, Pasig City

Japan Surplus Shops


These secondhand shops sell a plethora of home items, from appliances to old furniture, but the best buys in these shops are the Japanese tiny plates, saucers, and teapots, some going for as low as P15 or P10 apiece! You might even get lucky and find an actual bunraku teacup hidden in the pile. There seems to be a Japan Surplus in almost any Philippine town, but one of the biggest is JMS in Marikina. 

Uniwide Wareouse Club


Our parents and teachers taught us “not to judge a book by its cover," and it’s a saying that can be applied to Uniwide Wareouse Club. Don’t be fooled by its low lighting and iffy ventilation, it describes itself as the “BEST place in Parañaque to get cheap home decor and kitchen stuff." For a price range of P100 to 300, you can already score home decors such as fancy figurines, antique-style figurines, and even tiny porcelain houses! Plastic and ceramic plates for decorative and everyday use are also available here. But their best buys are the ceramic Chinese-style stools—which can be mistaken for those stools sold in designer stores—which sell for P2,000 and below.
