Store I Adore: Ghoent Junior


I have always been in love with soft bags with quirky designs:




Convertible into hand or sling bag:


And I also have a thing with Vintage Bauls:




That's why when I learned about the online shop Ghoent Junior, I instantly fell in love all over again.

The brand Ghoent Junior came from the founders' names Ghoent and Jan Ralph, both smart kids who went to UP Diliman. The cute couple started this online shop by helping each other in creating items that are not mass produced. Ghoent (yes, that's a girl's name!) is in charge of the designs of the products and the site maintenance, while Jan Ralph takes care of the logistics such as sourcing for materials, transporting, and storing the goods.

"We are not trend followers; partly because we can not afford such a lifestyle, and mainly because we are unbelievably practical," said the adventurous and fun-loving Ghoent Junior owners in their website.

"We are at a constant search for the discovery of things - whether its the best burger store that's existing (Wham! Burgers is our current champion), to the most random (and probably useless) questions like: what is infinity divided by infinity? "




"Chuck Palahniuk is one of Jan Ralph's favorites. We are inspired by what he said:
The goal is not to live forever; the goal is to create something that will."

Impressive, indeed. :)
