The Brown Bag Market Experience

Nori of Style Economics bought some rings from Anagon months ago, and invited me to join her bazaar, the Brown Bag Market. But wait, "This is not a bazaar!". It is "..a flea market that aims to provide a platform for social entrepreneurs to showcase their products". Nice "artsy" venue (The Collective, Malugay), good stall price, and scheduled on an ideal date (near Christmas!), I went for it and invited my sistah Pax of Archive Clothing to share booth space with me! :)

Ingress with the help of my ever supportive parentals! My stall was already up at around 10 am!
Then I saw my long time suki Anisa! :) I've known her since the beginning of my wireart accessories! She's my buena mano for the day!

My partner has arrived! :) In time for lunch lang teh? Haha!

Spotted: Alex, the Reluctant Stylista, and her sister: browsing through Anagon X Archive! :)
They bought lots of accessories from my stall, thanks to Alex who bullied her sister and friend ;-) Hehehe!!!

Group pic! :) 
Melai was also there, with Fashion Stop Shop's first (and successful! :)) bazaaring stint!

Fstop was with Denise and Maris' Simone's Closet! :)

Ava was there as early as 2pm, and stayed with us till we already packed up! <3
The sweetest girl everrr..Wearing Anagon necklace pa! <3

As early as opening time, BBM organized programs held in the middle of the venue, such as a photography workshop (Melai on-the-spot styled the model with FStop and Anagon! :)), photoshop and video editing seminars, film showing, and even a Tumblr meet up. We participated in the Awearness: Eco Fashion and Beauty Forum!

Bloggers as audience? :D Parang classroom lang! 

Back-row Girls! :D Haha!
Cute nail colorsss: Salmon nails of A+B's Arianne, Nude pink nails of Pax, light blush nails of Ava, and my flashy red digits!

Pretty Vern's talk+demo on mineral makeups for Bare Minerals. 
Eto lang ang masasabi ni Athan: Bravo!

The maker of Green Minded Missy!

A brand that carries denim totes like this:
Out of thrifted jeans! :) Cool noh? :D

Tin's personal fave!

Demo for Mary Kay
We all tried (and love!!!) the Oil Mattifier (P585)! 

Pawis and oiliness ako from spending the whole day outdoors, but after applying the "magic product", I love that it gave me instant matte skin! Picture-an uli kami after this, haha!

More freebies from the talk!
CUTE  Envirosax shopping bag!

 Make up samples from Bare Minerals!

Coffee from Kape Isla! Personally, my energy-booster to last the day! :D

Pasta Box merienda! 
(I love the people of Pasta Box! <3 They bought rings from my stall, and they don't mind if I always get drinking water from them, hehe)

I also got a turon from Binalot (sorry no photo, ubos kaagad pag bigay sakin, haha!). Can I just say, I love all the foods and freebies! Kudos to BBM organizers for all these perks!

Stuff I got that day:
 FStop's pretty Boater Hat! :)

 Archive Clothing finds, to be worn in coming bazaars and events! :))

And my loot from Melai's Blog Giveaways! :D (not in photo: yellow Ichigo shoes!)
Mom said dito palang, bawi ka na!

More people I met in BBM:
With Lauren!

St. Scho batchmate Ian! She was there to support another fellow Kulasa, Miya, who also has a stall! :)

With Kookie, Pax, Nicole, Ava, and Athan!

Outfit Post! :)

Wore my dad's XL Woodstock tee given to him by my tita from a US trip. I love its hardcore-hippie feel, and wearing a tee on a HOT day was my best decision, hehe! Paired the tee with my H&M beanie (to hide my uneven hair color, hahaha), yellow sling bag to stash my kinita (hehe), and my new lovelife: Rubi Clogs I scored in Cotton On during my recent Singapore trip! Got the pair on sale for only P600ish! :D <3

Again, thank you so much to everyone I met during the Brown Bag Market! I love it when people recognize my blog, AND my brand ANAGON! :) Thank you to my blog friends Pax (and Mich!), Melai, and Ava (and Gersh and Athan!) for the company, tawanan, and great conversations. It wouldn't be this fun without you guys! :) <3
