As I had been recently obsessed with finding additional unusual planters for my window sill (that are reasonably priced, of course), I had decided it was time to visit Dapitan Arcade.
For those who are not familiar with this place, Dapitan Arcade is a small market place in Quezon City where decorative pieces of all kinds can be found. I wasn’t sure I’d find what I was looking for (since I didn’t know myself, LOL) but a few years back, my sister had found affordable unpainted pottery pieces which we used for a DIY painting activity for our, then, small children one Easter Sunday. She got this horrible looking pot pig that I now use as a succulent pot, so horrible-looking it was cute. I was hoping I’d find the same now, as well as some wooden wall plaques with those inspirational quotes that I am also obsessing over at present (I know, I know, I have an obsessive, though not compulsive, personality). So with sis and mom in tow, I drove out of our little Rizal town and made my way to Dapitan Arcade.
It was my first time there, and here are some shots I took outside. Had not been able to take pictures inside the complex itself, because I was busy browsing, hehe.
I didn’t really get what I envisioned to get, because they were all-out Christmas decor-sy already, but I did enjoy myself quite a bit. Maybe I’ll go again another day.
Btw, for those concerned about parking, there is none, just street parking, so be ready to wait it out, or walk a bit.
Ok, so, wanna see what I got?
