Welmanson is probably my favorite store in Quiapo, Manila. Whenever we visit the church, I make sure to have a little money with me to buy some beading, nail art supplies and little trinkets. It's also the most organized one I've found along that area.
Holy week will start around early April so I'm planning to start making rosaries ready before the procession starts. Here are a few I got for some really affordable prices.
I purchased a few black magnetic beads. I don't really know the diameter though. A strand only cost P80, the slightly smaller ones only cost P36 and you can already make a rosary per strand with a few extras.
I also got crosses and charms. The individually packed ones are stainless steels so I bought stainless wires to match it with.
Since I'm planning to give it away, I took two boxes and small bottles for packaging. The boxes I got for P67.50 each on sale. The small bottles for the mini rosaries costs P24 per pack.
Lastly, I picked up a brow stencil for my mom, P25, sticker gems, P25 for a pack of two and an acrylic organizer with 30 small bottles inside for only P200. I thought it'll be great for beads or gems storage, even glitters and mica since it has individual caps.
You can find a variety of beading supplies at Wellmanson, even accessories and other crafting materials at very affordable prices. I can not say that it's cheaper than Divisoria though.
