After the Black Nazarene and the bustling Plaza Miranda, the other reason many Filipinos flock to Quiapo is because of its hundreds of bargain stores. Aside from the usual China-made footwear and affordable cellphone accessories, Quiapo is a veritable treasure trove of budget home finds, houseware, and decor, and the best part is that most of them are even under P50! Here’s what to look out for:


The stalls under Quezon Bridge along C. Palanca (formerly Echague) are the go-to haunts for everything Filipiniana or native.
