My trip and walkthrough to Taytay Palengke!





Grabe talaga ang byahe papuntang Taytay palengke for my fabric crave!
I wanted to try out Taytay market to buy fabrics for my fashion projects at FIP. And it was haggard (crazy) as blaze. I was excited to go but afraid to be lost. Good thing my brother traveled with me. Thank you bro!


So... how do you get there from SM Centerpoint Sta. Mesa?


First off, wait for the bus that has a placard of "Taytay" at the front of SM Centerpoint Sta. Mesa and then tell to the conductor "Palengke po." And that costs Php 40. I know! It's so pricey. You could buy a lunch with that. *Student-state* Hahaha. It's expensive because your travel would be like an hour and a half.


You can also ride "Taytay" bus somewhere in SM Megamall, just ask for directions where to find that bus' transport, and you'll be ok.


Look at the map below:

Remember to ask the conductor every now and then if you're close to "Taytay Palengke". And when the time has finally arrived, you will be dropped off at the Manila East Road JOLLIBEE.



 Outline of the fabric stores:

Remember to Right-click all the pictures and select Open in new Tab for larger image. These places are the only ones I'm sure of, I wanted to explore more but it was getting dark. Haha.

I'm not really a pro here, I've only been here in Taytay market for the first time and for about an hour of shopping. So this documentation isn't that big, complete, and elaborated.



   Here are the detailed pictures and descriptions from the outline ABOVE:


 







I just drooled at the shot I made. It looks so cool! Hahaha, what do you think? I liked the timing of my composition, it was a beautiful accident shot with my phone. <3


Anyways, this store is "Telahan sa plaza". If you would notice, the one at the most left part is already closed. I think their closing time is at 5:00pm. I bought a really cute brown polka dots stretch fabric from them. It was Php 150 per kilo, and the piece I bought was Php 61, I guess it was about half kilo. And when I checked, it was about more than 1 yard! I'd go to this store a second time if I can!


And for the picture below, you'll find Fel's store beside the Rural Bank (on the left):


Fel's Depamaylo Enterpries. Textiles and Accessories. Tel. no. 286-1708

They sell almost everything, from bobbin cases, to plastic boning, to chiffons, satins, hair clothes, and more!

Here's a picture of their accessories:






Sewing machines!!! They're the blood of fashion! :D





I super want this! I won't tell the price! Hahaha. It's too expensive since all the parts are BRAND NEW! Woohoo!!!




You can buy hi-speed sewing machines at Federico E. Tupaz! Remember to find this at the Outline of the fabric stores map above to get here

.






They sell 2nd hand head together with brand new tables, motors, etc. For Php 8,000- 9,000.


Overall, I expected this place would be better but it wasn't. It's great for stretch fabrics per kilo. But I haven't found about silk fabrics, maybe because I was in a hurry though. I thought almost all of the fabrics are per kilo, but the fabrics that I needed were sold per yard! I didn't anticipate that. Haha.


It is still more complete and cheaper in Divisoria, but sadly 100% of my friends who know the place said it's too dangerous going there especially when you're alone, but I haven't met any tragedies in all of my trips there (been there once alone too haha), perhaps I was fortunate.  And my mom said that I should not go to Divisoria again.

So I'm only allowed to shop fabrics at Malls specifically at SM Megamall. :D I agree with my mom that it's better to spend a little higher for my safety since I only needed few yards.  Calculating the fare to Divisoria plus the time that I'll be saving and the stress of worrying for my safety is fair enough to shop at SM because it's convenient, safe, and fast.  And if in the future I'll be needing lots of fabrics, I'll probably look for a good supplier to come visit me instead of me going somewhere to buy them haha :P




Anyway, this would be a great bargain if your place is near Taytay. :D

All shots were taken by my Corby II. I'm happy that the quality here in my blog is acceptable.

Happy bloggin' everybody! Thanks for reading!!! If you have any questions feel free to ask me.
