We already had a client who got a plenty of mini sheep plushies for Christmas gifts.

It’s one helluva September we have there! We also joined BGC Art Mart last August. Wishing for more for the upcoming BER months. We are aiming to be regular on the said fairs (Escolta, Artesania, BGC Art Mart). Please watch out for 10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair before the year ends as well as Christmas bazaar at Cubao Expo, QC. We’re thinking of making various Christmas-themed plushies now, don’t miss out! x

PS

Why is it cool to shop at 10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair? Because each crafter/maker mans their booth and they are always ready for a chat. Read more about their crafts on the latest issue of Working Mom Mag (we’re featured, too)! Grab a copy now.

Monster Plushies at 10a Alabama

This is absolutely a late post because the next 10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair is happening this coming weekend. And we’ll be joining again for two days.

The last fair took place last April 13-14 and it turned out well as always. We came up with a new collection of MONSTER PLUSHIES. And to our delight, mostly kids fell in love with them.

Craft Fair is always a good venue to meet beautiful people and crafty fellas. This is the best part after all the cramming and sleepless nights of laboring your goodies. We meet nice customers and they become our regular visitors, in fact.  We meet old and new sellers/makers and share our business insights. We help each other on promotions and so on. It’s good to know  there’s a community that provides you a place where you feel you belong.

Just a preview of their bits and bobs, LoveNikitaPh is all about crocheted jewelries and accessories, Pop Pins turns bottle caps into cute and witty badges or hair clips, Spellbound showcases charming notebooks good for scribbling, doodling, and travel diary (as for me) because of it’s blank pages. I wish there would be dotted notebooks, too, for calligraphy that is. 🙂

Other wonderful booths as follows

boothsL-R (1st row): Lovely accessories by My Gilded Nest, unique stamps by Rubberducky Stamp Co., and mouth-watering macarons by Merry Macarons

L-R (2nd row): Felt goodies by Gawanifemi, Waldorf dolls by Dolldalita (Iamhandmade), and Hey Kessy‘s collection of stoneware plates (but they sell washi tapes and baker’s twines mainly)

Those are not all so you’d better visit us at 10a Alabama in Quezon City. Refer to the map below.

10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair takes place thrice a year. For this year, there was in April, July 20-21 (happening soon), and probably by November. So make sure you can catch it to bring home loads of handmade goodies and meet nice and artsy people. There’s a fascinating community waiting for you. Some sellers used to visit and buy, next thing they knew they were setting up a booth already. It can be you as well. 🙂

We’d like to thank our amazing customers esp. the kids. At first glance, they knew they really want to take our plushies home. And for their parents who are so loving and give what their kid wants hehe. To our fellow ALABAMERS, keep being awesome. We hope to meet more and more in this growing crafty community.

Here’s for the next fair!

July 20-21

Fact: We usually launch new collections here so you’d better catch us because they are only limited edition. For this one, we’ll launch new kinds of monster plush, new plush pillows- DACHSHUND, new printed totes (polka dots and more), and new designs for sleeping masks (hint: they are adventurous!). Who are not excited for this? Don’t miss out!

P.S.

Hope we can post a sneak peek, that’s if we can still find a time! Watch out for it.
