Where to buy affordable baby clothes in Manila
Posted on

Buying clothes for baby girls is my frustration because I don’t have any.
So when it dawned upon me that our family nurse Wanda was pregnant (believe me her belly seemed to just popped out one evening) I asked her what sex her baby was—girl!
Bingo.

Nurse Wanda

Wanda comes to our house three times a week to give me coffee enema, and I look forward to this time to stop and feel like I’m doing my body a favour.
Since my lifestyle change this year of not drinking Coke everyday, walking more with Fitbit, and having regular coffee enema, I’ve lost five lbs. and maybe three inches around my waist in just a few weeks. (But more on coffee enema and Fitbit in a later post.)

One of Manila’s best-kept secrets for moms is a house in Bel-Air that sells factory overruns of baby clothes.
I wish I had known about it when I had babies, but my kids were already walking when I discovered this haven of cuteness. Basic baby whites cost about 90 pesos each, to give you an idea.

So I got a bunch of stuff, and I’m sorry I don’t remember the prices. I got cute onesies in pink

But if I had a baby girl she would probably wear not pink.

I got a bunch of burp cloths, bed liners and towels

and threw in cloth diapers with lots of baby mittens because babies lose them all the time (or the adults do)

Baby clothes for Wanda

This entire haul cost Php 4,000 for about 60 items. So that’s an average of Php 60 per item.
The Bel-Air house is where a lot of bazaar sellers get their goods for newborns to toddlers.
Look for Manang Vicky at 48 Zodiac Street, Bel-Air, Makati
Open from 8 AM-5 PM daily, including holidays.
For inquiries call 896.4802.
Oh, and bring an eco bag while you’re at it 🙂

Thanks for this post. I have been trying to find baby clothes overruns for quite some time now. I have been research online stores and sellers here, but I might just go this store.

For anyone, who cannot visit them personally you might find searching through this helpful: https://www.mybenta.com/index.php?a=19&b%5Bsubcategories_also%5D=1&b%5Bsearch_text%5D=overruns

Thank you!

I’ve been buying my stock from Manang Vicky since 2004 (I make nappycakes/diaper cakes, but not so much na now, haha). Sometimes, her items are more expensive than getting from their Bulacan warehouse, but I buy from her because that’s the only way she earns. If she decides to give you a discount, it is taken away from her commission. Her employers pay her via commission. And yes, Hello Baby (the name of the small store behind the house) is also open on Sundays and holidays. Best to call ahead to see if Manang Vicky is there. Sometimes, if it’s… Read more »

I need this post! I’m almost 8 months pregnant and I have absolutely nothing for my third child yet!!! Pinamigay kasi naman lahat ng mga baby clothes because we were convinced we were okay with two kids. But I’m so tamad to shop because it’s so hot. I just lie down in front of the aircon all day, still melting. But sige, I will check out this Bel-Air house! Thanks, C!

The hooded towels (125/pc) I bought for my son in 2009 when I was pregnant with him, are still in good condition. He still uses these every day, nearly 5 years later.

Shopping for baby girls is addictive. I like the stuff at Cotton On Baby. My mom naman shops for Baby Gap overruns for Tala at the tiangge in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa.

If tag Php60 ang isa, mas mahal pa ang mga baby clothes sa mga second stores. They’re priced from $1.50 to $3.
