saturday x future market april 2014

Posted on: May 12, 2014

i really wanted to go to a saturday x future market in escolta, followed map instructions to the dot… and didn’t get lost! plus ten points in direction skillz!


they sold so many vintage looking stuff like old cassette tape keychains, hashtag stickers, vinyl records, stamps, pictures of actors, coins, and toys! i remember buying one of those bubble type things which you blow into, and i definitely had pick up sticks and jars of marbles and dinosaurs when i was a kid.


i bought some stationery and feather pins. i also got a free pin!


and washi tape! art supplies are usually cheaper in bazaars and markets like these than in malls.


they also sold accessories, was eyeing some of the cake rings, but i have so many already.


other stuff you can find are pop up wallets; tableware… i bought a hand painted bowl with chinese patterns; crocheted decors; funny animal magnets… i got a tiger one; awesome books… i bought the tao of pooh; and bottlecap stuff, they’re cute.


they had so many witty tote bags too. the not made in china and atom araullo pregnancy club ones made me laugh.


most importantly, they had some typography and other prints. it’s like ogling art stuff in a gallery, only it’s for free. specially liked the carpe diem, and filipino inspired ones.

was really happy i was able to catch this market, never thought i’d find so many treasures in manila. even saw carlos celdran in a bunny headband, was too shy to say hi though, hihi. but will definitely come back!

yun lang.
