Joined a couple of bazaars this year and I can't thank my Beb Ana enough for exposing me to the bazaar world. She would let me join her booth from time to time and I wouldn't have known what to do if it weren't for the experience she gave me. So, when I finally had the chance to have my first ever major bazaar two weeks ago (overdue post!!) at the ETC Glam Camp, you could say I was semi-ready for the people and booth preparations with the big help of my Mom, of course. :)

The place was already familiar to me since I live close by, but I never realized that The Tents Alphaland actually had a venue for events like these...



The event was also packed with big and amazing sponsors such as Close Up, Century Tuna, Wi-Tribe, Skin White and more!


Since my Mom and I focused on food to be a bit different. We stayed together with the other food booths at the "Cafeteria" area. :)

For day one, I didn't really know what to expect because it was our first major bazaar and second the people were quite few when it started, but luckily late afternoon, more people started coming in and I'm SO fortunate to have supportive friends, readers and new found friends who bought from our booth!^_^


First time to meet Brie even though I already tweeted her before regarding winning the Glam Camp exclusive invite, but she was already picked by Denise, so I had to let go. But meeting her was a pleasure! She's a sweet and pretty girl!


With Maris and Denise!

With Dewi and Beb Ana!

Vern also dropped by the bazaar and bought our best seller, Chocolate chip cookies. I was happy to see a few of my blog friends that day. :)


Jen, Rache and Kai( don't have picture with you :() also dropped by and I met Jen's super sweet and pretty little girl, Sophie!^_^


For day two, we still had the same baked goodies, but added some pink cupcakes! We also changed our table cloth. Notice the difference?:)


A few bloggers and friends also dropped by during day two, like Diane and her ever so cute baby!


I'm sure some of you want to see the different fashion booths there, so here are some of my favorite stores...

Ana and Krissy's Fashion Compass booth! I got a skull bracelet from Ana!:) Super cute!



Pink Pum Accessories. I absolutely love their shirts! Was really tempted to buy the Zebra print. Cute, right??


Ms. Style and Soul herself with her F-STOP booth. If you're looking for asian fashion, go to her shop!:) She's also another very supportive friend. She bought cookies from me during day 1 and 2. :") Thank you, Melai and JR!!


I've heard about the Pin Up Girl store online, but it was my first time to meet the owner, Andie. She's so sweet and nice. Among all the people who bought from Artsy Ava's Cookies & More, I got the most overwhelming response from her. Thank you, Andie!!  I love your store and sketches!



My ultimate favorite booth during Glam Camp was none other than, The School of Satchel! I really have a weak spot for satchels as you all know and when I saw Bianca's booth, it was love at first sight!




All her bags are made from 100% genuine leather and all of its materials and manufacturing is made here in the Philippines. I think this is a perfect example of loving your own country's product. Definitely prefer this over Cambridge right now. ;) Another thing great about S.O.S. is for every satchel bag purchased from the S.O.S. premium pledges collection, they'll be giving one school bag to You get an awesome bag and you also get to help out!:)

We had a picture on the rooftop as requested by ETC with all the bloggers who participated at the bazaar. I was looking at the other camera here, so I seemed dazed. =P

All in all, I could say that I enjoyed the bazaar. I joined because I wanted Mom to feel how it was like to join bazaars. She loves baking and wants to pursue it full time someday, so I thought this was a good chance. It was also an awesome bonding time with her, so even if it was extremely tiring due to all the preparations, I still had a great time and I think this was a nice experience for the both of us. :)

Thank you again to everyone who came, supported and to ETC, 2nd Avenue, Diva Universal, Solar Entertainment and Ms. Milette Roque for having us!

I heard there will be a Bloggers United Part 2. Do watch out for that and ARTSY AVA'S COOKIES & MORE part 2 as well! ;)
