CARITAS MANILA the lead Catholic agency for social services and development of the Archdiocese of Manila presents its First Christmas Flea Market which started last Monday, November 14 and ends on December 29.
The Flea Market showcases a lot of items that Christmas buyers will surely love. From toys and novelty items, household items, gift items, cellphones, shirts to groceries.. all at very reasonable prices. CARITAS MARGINS products are also available at the flea market area. Caritas Margins are products that are 100% made by urban poor families that Caritas Manila is helping through its Caritas Iskills Livelihood Training Program.
Buyers will also not go far for a quick snack since there’s a TJ hotdog stand, pizza and other snack items within the compound.
The place also has its own secured parking area, clean toilets, and a canteen for those that needs to take in something much heavier than a quick snack which makes your buying experience more relaxed and comfortable.
Aside from the Flea Market, The Caritas Manila Compound in Pandacan is also the home of the Segunda Mana Pandacan Outlet. This is the Ukay and 2nd Hand store of Caritas Manila for real bargain hunters. Whether you’re looking for home and office furnitures, appliances, clothing, household items, books or toys – you’ll find it all inside the Segunda Mana store.
The good news is, when you buy an item in any of the flea market tents and the segunda mana store, you not only get a good buy but you also help the programs of Caritas Manila. Particularly, their Youth and Servant Leadership and Education Program or YSLEP which is basically a scholarship (educational assistance) and youth leadership training program for the youth or children of target urban poor families.
So, go ahead and experience the Caritas Manila Christmas Flea Market and you’ll find out that shopping can also be a meaningful experience for you, your friends and family. It can change lives.
