You will know that the Christmas Season in Manila started when stalls selling rope-light lanterns and Capiz starts to sprout on major thoroughfares. The more popular stalls are located at Gilmore St. in San Juan and along SLEX near Buendia in Makati. Of course there are stalls in Pampanga if you don't mind the distance. Rope light decors are actually cheaper there as well as plastic coated lanterns on wire frames. But, if you're looking for the Capiz variety, the cheapest is located in Divisoria.
Looking for the store might be a challenge for those who are not familiar with the area. It is located at the other end of C. M. Recto near Delpan Sports Complex. Here you will find Capiz Lanterns that ranges from 100 for the small items to as big as you can afford. The trick is to haggle always and to buy in bulk.
They also have decorative Capiz items in various shapes and can customize for you if you order in advance.
The stall I frequent is Mary Shell Craft.
You can reach them at Tel. No. 2316289
