At the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2012 – Rockwell Tent, Makati

Every year, I make it a point to go to the Global Pinoy Bazaar, held every second week of November at the Rockwell Tent Makati, and showcases Filipino products made with 100% Filipino love and pride. “At Global Pinoy Bazaar 2012” seems like such a boring blog title when it really should be more aptly titled “Lia Goes to the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2012 (And Has A Field Day)”. Indeed, my annual visit to the Global Pinoy Bazaar has documented my journey of motherhood. From being a harassed new mother to a harassed full-fledged mother to a toddler, Global Pinoy Bazaar has seen it through. When I used to buy baby clothes and toys, and things for myself like clothing, shoes, accessories, bags, and make-up, my purchases this year were for toddlers alone. My toddler was too caught up with so many things that we didn’t get to stay long enough to look at other things, much more buy any. Lia wanted to know the names of everything we saw, “What’s this?” “What’s that?” and she wanted to check out things I didn’t want to check out and she wasn’t interested in the things I wanted to look at – except if it was food. We got hungry from all the taste testing we did.

After going around all the booths quickly, Lia and I went back to the booths we liked. Lia absolutely loved this booth selling felt finger puppets and funky hats. She entertained other shoppers while there.

This row had all the booths selling items for kids, which weren’t a lot, and right next to it was the booth of “Likhang ArteSana“, and they had books, journals and other crafts items.

I was told by the owner who was manning the booth that their items are also being sold at Powerbooks. How I love the items at Powerbooks!

Lia fell in love with the “Fun Artivity Book” and though I thought it was a bit complicated for her age, she didn’t want to let go of it anymore, so we brought her one.

What You Missed at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2010

Took me long enough to post about my experience at the Global Pinoy Bazaar this year, but may I just say that it was, “Awesome!” Being one of the exhibitors this year made the experience tiring but I totally enjoyed my two days at the bazaar. I spent a lot of money! About P8,000, actually. And I could have bought more, except that, that was just too much shopping for two days. I spent more than I actually gained, and to tell the truth, I did not gain anything, except all the goods I shopped and an empty wallet. *straight face goes here*

I tried to take as many photos as I could, tried to take photos of all the shops, especially the ones that I liked, but there were just so many booths and there were a lot of people at times that that made that hard. Still, I came home with a good number of photos.

Our Kikayism booth was tiny, it couldn’t hold everything we had, but it was the only space we could afford!

We were selling Pinangga clothing and bags, Supladita clothing and espadrilles, Merkins bikinis, Letterbox t-shirts and Palamuti accessories.

Catch These Products at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2010

Entrepreneurship By October 10, 2010 Tags: , , No Comments

I remember making this (almost same) post last year about the Global Pinoy Bazaar. I remember how excited I was at going to the bazaar and buying some of the products I saw on the teasers. I remember actually getting to the bazaar and going gaga over the many stalls and products, and just losing almost all of my money to various stuff I fell in love with. Hahaha! I remember making a blog post about my visit to the bazaar and whatever stuff I bought.

This year, I am bracing myself for yet another wonderful day at the Global Pinoy Bazaar in Rockwell Tent. This year, I am even more (overly) excited about going to the bazaar. Why? Because we are one of the merchants! Unbelievable, yet true! Much thanks to my partners, PJ Valenciano and Nikki Valenzuela for making this happen! Catch Kikayism at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2010!

And with us will still be some of my favorite merchants/sellers/shops:
