Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011

So this is how it feels like to man a booth in a bazaar.

It’s the first time I ever experienced selling in a bazaar. Well, I’ve had pseudo-experiences on fair selling when I was on High School, but I think that barely counts; especially when you account my friend-coercing efforts :P Anyway, I learned how to appreciate bazaar sellers. It takes a lot to man a booth – with all the crowd, the questions, the impossible haggles, etc! You can’t leave the booth just anytime. You can’t appear tired, you must always smile. Above all, you must sell your stuff to indecisive buyers (I quoted as such because I believe people do not know what they want and are generally indecisive.) Though I have to note that we’ve had a couple of buyers who just showed up and bought.

We were situated outside the tent, right at the entrance to the bazaar. I don’t know if that is particularly good, but hell yeah it was cold inside the tent. Here are some of the stuff sold inside the tent…

DSC_0195One of the last brands that I visited was Timbre (pronounced as Tam-ber, according to owner Paul.) I love the design – globally competitive with the tribal artisan and proudly Filipino! Looking forward for this on December!

Thank you to those who supported Punchdrunk Panda! I was really tired that day, but it was fulfilling at the same time. I have newfound respect for bazaaristas for that matter :P
