What the best item that you brought from Divisoria? I'm thinking of going there especially before the christmas season and do some shopping. I'm hoping that teh journey will spark a new business idea as well. How about you guys? Any best finds that you got there that's worth sharing?

I used to go to divisoria to buy cloths to make dresses of my own design. I think that's the only thing that I buy from there. My sister however is a fan of bags and there's where she gets those.

When you needed materials for accessory making like earrings, bracelets, key chains, cellphone accessories and the like or needlecraft like cross stitching, embroidery, quilting, crochet or simply buy and selling bags, t-shirts, sunglasses, caps, etc. There are a lot of items in Divisoria that you can find at really lower prices but just do not go there on weekends or during Mondays because these days are considered peak days when most people shop...and do your shopping at the earliest time possible as in you have to leave before the sun rises as in 3 hours before 7am. I went there last year for my daughter's project and was able to leave at around 7am. I arrived in Divisoria at 11:30am, I was not expecting that every place there were so very crowded by then. I got the materials I needed and the other extra for my friend's store after 6PM. I was very exhausted and my whole body ached specially my feet. Anyway, the items i got and the prices were worth it anyway!

Divisoria is always the bargain go to of the public, whatever that you can think of, I think Divisoria got it. If you have a business, I'm pretty sure that you will go to Divisoria to buy your supplies, and even cost conscious people will buy there to buy things in bulk and will get big discounts not available anywhere else. Each street specializes stuff so it's really a treat if you are on a tight budget.

we went to divisoria and i accompany my mom to buy some needles and other stuff for her to make a scarf for my grandma. we were lucky because it was raining and there wasn't much people around and i saw some cameras there to prevent from being snatched or holdup by some one.

I have not been to Divisoria for many many years because "m from the Visayas. But there was a time when I did some Christmas shopping there and it was very cheap compared to the prices in my city. My cousin said the bags are cheap, the same bags sold here in the department stores that prices are double or triple the original price from Divisoria. Hope to go there this year.
