Bloggers Closet comes to life!

by - February 20, 2011

After all the planning and promoting, I am proud to say that our first BLOGGERS CLOSET was a huge success! I didn't have high expectations for it, because my main goal was to enjoy the experience, but it was all worth it and we can't thank enough all the people who came and bought from us. :)

We arrived at the venue pretty early, thanks to Gersh's awesome navigation skills and we got to set up our stuff before the people came. :) 

Here are some of the awesome things that was on sale during the garage sale...

Lovely bags from Ping!

I really wanted this bag, but my objective for the day was to sell and not to buy. I just stared at it the whole day and kept telling myself that I don't need it. But when fellow blogger, Len bought it, I heard my heart break. :'( *sniff* Masakit pala! haha. =p But I'm happy that I was able to control my urges. Good things come to those who wait. Enjoy your bag, Len!:)

Chic clothes for sale!
Wire ring--Ana's best seller!

Raining accessories!

We not only had bags, clothes, accessories and shoes, we also had yogurt ice cream and iskrambol--I had two servings of yogurt with crushed grahams and mangoes due to the extreme heat! It was perfect for the hot sunny weather!:)

I always love events that gathers friends and bloggers together. Who would have thought that the blogsphere can create bonds like these...

Me, Honey, Ana and Aie :)

Also got to meet a reader and first buyer Arizia!:) Don't you just love turquoise satchel and summery aura?

Like the usual, I brought Athan and Gersh with me, but since it was a garage sale, there weren't really any kids around, so when Athan saw these two kids coming inside our garage, he immediately screamed, "KIDS!! I love, kids!!" Witness his happy fez!

Ana, me, Aie, Melai, Honey and Donna
We weren't actually expecting Melai to come, because we were informed that she was sick, but sweet Melai said that she still came, because she promised. :) Awwww! Plus, she's the party of every chikka, so we were really happy she was present. I also had the chance of meeting fellow blogger and mom, Donna of Miss Donata. She was really nice and it's great to meet mommy bloggers during events. :)

Kuya who bought a Pentax baby from me!^_^
Super sweet Melai and JR! 

Had the pleasure of also meeting reader, new mommy and now a blogger--Diane. She just loved close by and lucky us, she not only dropped by, she also bought a lot. :) Thank you so much, Diane!

Raleene and her sister also dropped by for awhile. They'll be joining us for part two! :)

Having a garage sale like this and being bloggers that love fashion, doesn't make it easy for us to control our urges to buy. There were racks and racks of clothes, tables filled with accessories and all being sold at affordable prices. That's why instead of buying, we just tried on the things we fancied. :)

Melai and Pax trying on blazers! Don't they look fab?:)

Me and the yellow cardigan that I really wanted, but someone already bought it as soon as I returned it on the rack. :(

The bloggers sale was indeed very tiring, but it was really a great experience for all of us. Some people are already asking for part two and we're overwhelmed by the reactions. This whole thing was Honey's idea and we're really grateful that she organized this all for us without anything in return. Thank you so much, Honey! We had so much fun! :)

Are you guys ready for part two??:) Coming soon!
