My Finds from the Christmas Bazaar 2016

I admit that I had much more fun browsing the items on sale during last year.

I would say that the products sold by the booths last year were much more interesting than the ones on display this year, but maybe that’s just me and my hobbies speaking. You see, while I love dressing up, I don’t really get excited about hangers and piles of clothes. And shoes. And bags. And makeup. Don’t get me wrong; I love all of those things just as much as the next girl, but come on, I see all of those in malls and online stores everyday.

When I visit bazaars, I expect to discover unique knick-knacks, browse hobby stores and stores that offer products we don’t often see in malls and boutiques, sample locally made food products… So I was quite disappointed with this year’s bazaar’s lack of those things.

I found myself missing the craft, artsy, hobby, party, local organic food stalls from last year. Where were my handcrafted soap, planners and diaries and colouring books, locally made chocolates, and calligraphy stuff? Oh well.

However, I did not come home empty-handed. Okay, I almost never come home empty-handed from whatever, but yeah, you get the point. I did find stuff that sparked my interest and even discovered things that I’ll surely buy again (totally saving those business cards, guys!). Here are my finds from the Christmas Bazaar 2016.

Finds From The Christmas Bazaar

Christmas Bazaar Davao Convention Center

Have you visited a Christmas Bazaar lately? I have (and have written about it in a previous post) and bought several things in spite of my vow to not buy anything before December.

In fairness, it was almost December last Saturday so I decided to forgive myself. I just set a meagre budget (and went just the littlest bit overboard) and off I went.

I went there with my work gals, Jona and Macy.

Sarah was supposed to be going with us but she had a headache and had to stay home #buntisproblems. Originally, we wanted to visit the bazaar to buy sweaters and stuff for our Christmas getaway. We also wanted to buy matte lippies. Well, we went home with neither. There were gorgeous sweaters there but their price tags weren’t “bazaar prices.” And then there were no matte lippies at all.

I went home with these instead:

Within budget! Haha
