Yesterday, I gave you a virtual tour of National Bookstore’s Color and Calligraphy Fair.
Now let’s get to the juicy part: the loot!
All the bloggers and members of the media who attended the fair’s media preview went home with a handful of bags containing gifts from the generous sponsors and the awesome peops from National Bookstore themselves. Here’s mine!
I had to go somewhere so I wasn’t able to open the bags and explore the gifts until later that evening. When I got home, though, I noticed that the bags have been re-arranged. Someone at home obviously had fun looking at the supplies inside (I’m not the only stationery junkie at home!).
Had to return the stuff to their original bags to take this picture LOL! (Look, I have a photobomber!)
Let me show you what’s inside the bags:

One of my absolute favourite stores in the world is National Bookstore.
It’s a no-brainer. I love books, pens, notebooks, stationery, school supplies, art supplies, even office supplies like staplers and tape dispensers. Where else to go but NBS? Nothing compares.
When I first knew about National Bookstore’s Color and Calligraphy fair, I was sure I was going to be there. I was already salivating at the thought of all the art and calligraphy supplies. I would figuratively drown in 0.5 tips and brush tips and at least 150 gsm paper. What got me jumping up and down, though, was an invitation to be part of their media preview. Oh, National Bookstore, you don’t need to tell me twice!
I got to Abreeza a few minutes after it opened, but at the atrium, where the Color and Calligraphy fair was happening, people were already milling around. I noticed teenagers and young kids examining the booths and claiming some spots in the art tables. Nice one, kids! I myself felt like I was in an art heaven of some sort. I think all the art supplies you will possibly need were there!
This is going to be a two-part post. For this part, I’ll give you a virtual tour of what I saw in the Color and Calligraphy fair. Prepare for picture overload!
