The Manila Sundance Bazaar was held last October 28-30, 2016. They were open from 11 am – 9 pm at the World Trade Center. This year they had their first ever special mommy fair pop-up in partnership with Mommy Mundo, and since it was the Halloween weekend, they encouraged MSB goers to dress up in their best and most fashionable halloween costumes. They also had several freebies and games happening throughout the day. The entrance fee was only Php 100 and I can definitely say it was worth it. Special thanks to Manila Bazaars for letting me get in for free!
Outside the World Trade Center there’s a grassy area where families can enjoy a picnic and have fun after shopping. The place was really big, yet Manila Sundance Bazaar was able to fill this entire place up with various stores. When I went last Saturday at around 4 pm, there were a lot of people because of all the nice stores and discounts they were giving. However, since the place is well ventilated, I really didn’t mind the crowded stores that much.
They sold all kinds of things, they had bags, shoes, and different clothes for men and women. Everything was so trendy and affordable it was hard not to spend a big amount. In almost every store I passed, I just wanted to buy everything.
As usual, they had all kinds of make up too. I’d advise you to go around the entire place before buying make up though because some stores sell the exact same thing for different prices. They also had brushes and brush cleaners, and more make up related things.
Aside from clothes they had pouches, badges, watches, sea salt spray, face masks, and so much more! I’m pretty sure everyone could find at least one thing they would like. Aside from having such a wide variety of stores, they were all at a cheaper price than usual! This made the shopaholic in me and my wallet incredibly happy.
David Guison and Vina Guerrero had a booth as well selling various items like clothes, glasses, and cases. There were a few other bloggers there as well selling interesting finds. Sam Pinto also had a booth selling her clothes along with other artistas.
The Winkz Creations booth was probably my favorite one. They sold various items, but what really caught my attention was their dream catchers. The shop had such a dream like, whimsical vibe, that I couldn’t resist buying one. They also customize your dream catcher on the spot for free so you can have your name or whatever word you want attached to it.
Here are a few of the things I bought! The dream catcher is from Winkz Creations. The pouches are from Earth Bags, and I am absolutely in love with these pouches. The owners are very very nice and the pouches can be bought at such an affordable price! They have other items aside from pouches. They have pillow cases, tote bags, drawstring bags, and so much more! Make sure to check them out because the quality of these pouches are top-notch. The patches are from The Artefacts and their store definitely lives up to the sassyness and cuteness of their name. The red and pink tops are both from M.U.R.A. Shop Clothing PH and the comic print top is from Andrea Torres’ closet.
Naturally, after all the shopping, MSB goers would be hungry. Luckily, there were several food concessionaires by the entrance and they all looked so scrumptious.
I’m definitely going to the next one because there is still so much that I want to buy. I hope to see you at the next Manila Sundance Bazaars!
