So bazaar season is here,and you know what this means right? The shopping madness begins! I love bazaars for last minute Christmas shopping and being a haven of unique finds. There’s always something here that I can’t find elsewhere and if you’re lucky, you can even haggle and bring the price down. Of course you can also go to a bargain paradise like Divisoria, but it gets too crowded there at this time of year. A bazaar becomes your bet for being accessible, safer and with airconditioning to boot!
A week ago, the family found ourselves in Rockwell Powerplant Mall in Makati City and I stumbled upon the Moonlit Bazaar. It looked attractive from outside with soft lighting emanating from the tents. I checked it out after paying a P100 entrance fee. This bazaar is relatively small compared to the Noel or Cuenca bazaars. Still, it was a treasure trove of interesting items and I ended up buying more than I expected.
I saw a drink mug shaped like a camera lens but it was kinda pricey at P1000. So I settled instead for this cigarette lighter that looks like a miniature camera. Just press on the shoot button when you want to light up your cig. Neat eh? Only P250.
Something for the guys, or the bachelor. A telephone shaped like a girl wearing a bikini (or bra). P1,200.
This is something to add to my Christmas wishlist. I love vintage style necklaces 🙂
There was even a guy selling antiques and paintings. This pre-World War II gramophone was selling for about P45,000. It was still in good working condition
Satchels are in fashion these days and these selections from the Philippine-made School Satchel were eye candy. Bag prices start at P3,800.
Overall, this bazaar was geared for females. What I mean is that most of the selections consisting of bags, shoes, tops and other stuff were mostly for women.
What was in my bag: a white shirt from this store called Flattering Tops, an accessory ring shaped like a woman’s mask, earrings & bag organizer.
Catch the next wave of the Moonlit Bazaar at Rockwell on December 2 to 4 and December 9 to 11, 2011.
