I was one of the bloggers who was invited to participate in the very first Bloggers United Bazaar held at the Malayan Plaza Hotel last Friday, May 27. An event wherein notable style bloggers of the interwebzzz connect outside their computer screens and sell items from their closets or respective fashion lines. Met a lot of blog readers and made new friends as well! We all had such an awesome time! Here are photos from our garage sale:
Went there an hour early to prepare! All the good ones were placed on the table!
While the sucky ones were on the floor haha! Sold my baseball/letterman jackets, blazers, button downs, shirts, tank tops, jeans, shoes, shades, bracelets, necklaces, etc! Everything not higher than Php900!
I was ready to say goodbye to these babies. They’ve been so helpful in so many shoots!
Made a last minute powerpoint presentation for our booth! Well, Bjorn did. I couldn’t figure out how it works haha but I printscreened both of our blogs and flashed them the whole day!
We gave away copies of the latest issue of Status Magazine to our first 10 customers!
And these cool Status Magazine stickers! Thank you, Status!
With my booth neighbors Patrish, Bjorn, Tin and Vern! I had fun with you guys!
The Gondo Girls: Tricia Gosingtian and Domz Tiu! I missed them so much!
Kryz Uy, prettiest saleslady I’ve ever seen in my life! Hahaha!
Laureen Uy too! Almost all the bloggers has something feathery in their outfits that day!
And of course, Camille Co! She pretty much brought her whole closet with her. She was selling so many things!
Shared a booth with fellow blogger and a good friend of mine, Bjorn Bedayo! He designed our booth! He posted photos of some of his works and triangle cut-outs for a hipster feel haha! (P.S. My sister takes amazing photos! Not.)
People started coming in around 10am! I placed everything in one big suitcase cuz I didn’t bring a rack nor hangers lol. Also didn’t know how to fold clothes properly so I just let them be. Haha took photos of some blog readers/customers:
My first customer!!! He went early and bought a lot of stuff! Thank you!!!
Another early customer! He got a free copy of Status magazine yay!
With blog reader Christian. My second time to see him at an event! He always tweets me and now we’re pretty good friends! The power of the world wide webzzz!
This guy bought my custom-made varsity jacket! So cool cuz we have the same initials!
Blog reader Jojit! He missed work just to drop by! He bought one of my combat boots too! Thank you for buying and supporting our event!
With the most loyal blog readers ever, May and Karla! I met these girls in fashion week and they’re always present in these kind of events! Yay!
This girl bought something for her friend who couldn’t make it to the event! Sweet!
These two are not blog readers but they came to support the event! The guy bought my leather jacket and some shirts!
We didn’t really chat much cuz I was stressed out with math haha (even though I brought my huge calculator) but thank you for buying from my booth!
They have so much swag you guys have no idea! Haha thank you for buying!
With blog reader Gian. He asked me to sign his ‘slambook’ hahaha it was funny!
Yay she bought a varsity jacket and took outfit photos right after she got home. Cute!
He came a bit late so there weren’t much good stuff at my booth anymore but he still managed to find something to buy! Woohoo!
With fellow bloggers Tin Iglesias and Bjorn Bedayo!
With Lissa Kahayon :)

With fellow Forever 21 brand ambassador Patrish!
Camille and Laureen were tired already but they don’t look wasted at all. Why is that!!!
While I was busy manning the booth, my sister was getting her nails done! WTH! lol
Yay for McDelivery haha!
While waiting for the food, Sonja’s Cupcakes gave away these sweet treats! They’re so good! I wish they open a branch in Quezon City! Thank you Tita Sonja! LOL.
Cool edible treats from one of our sponsors, Sophie’s Mom!
More cupcakes by Sofie’s Mom! They all look so good!
The McDonald’s lady has arrived! We were so happy we wanted to give her a hug!
Thank you McDonald’s lady! I’ll definitely give you a call again *wink* LOL.
Having a moment with my McChicken meal. During our break time, Patrish, Lissa and I went outside of the hotel to take some photos! It was so windy! Here are the photos:
Patrish is so tall she can’t even fit in the photo haha
Who’s ready for Lissa’s clothing line? :)
My turn to cross the street haha! Hype this on Lookbook here.
I’m crazy about anything with aztec prints right now!
Something you don’t see everyday haha
Lissa and Patrish are so cute!!!
It was so windy that day!
How cheesy could this photo get? Hahaha!
Hahaha I love this photo! We were laughing like retards in the middle of the street!
Stalking Patrish haha
Vern Enciso, fresh from Bangkok! Haha! Finally met her pretty sister too!
It was windy outside haha
Then it started to rain…
New freebies at our booth: ketchup! Haha we really gave them away!
Stacy Gutierrez! They have the best booth! Complete with tarpaulins and huge tables!
Fellow Forever 21 brand ambassador Danah Gutierrez! I missed her so much!
The Walkie Talkies doing a mashup of Grenade and S&M! They’re amazing!
Look! Jason and I were wearing the same pants and socks! Hahaha crazyyyyyy!
With Lyka Orhel! SDA reprezzzent!
With Domz Tiu! Haven’t seen her for months!
This guy came all the way from Paranaque + it was raining. He tweeted me if I was selling a leather jacket, I said yes but I didn’t know he was going to the event & buy it so I didn’t reserve it for him! When he came the jacket was already sold! I felt really bad! Good thing he still found something to buy from me so I just gave him a discount! Judging our picture, I think he’s mad at me haha so sorry!
With Cheyser Perdregosa! I’ve been wanting to meet her since I saw her on Lookbook and now we’re schoolmates! She even bought a blazer for her 15-year old cousin from me! Yay!
With Cheyz, Lorenz, Patty, Lyka and Nikki! Was supposed to go with them to Fiamma for An & En Estrada’s party but I was too tired! I had fun with you guys!
Patrish and Lissa are still smiling even after a long and tiring day.
With the last customer of the day, Paul! He bought all the remaining items from my booth! So nice of him! I sold everything! Even the socks (unused of course haha) hahaha. Thank you!!!
Fun photobooth photos with Lissa, Patrish, Chiqui, Vern and Bjorn!
And that’s it! Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported the event! It was nice meeting all of you! You were all so nice! I was so exhausted (was standing from 9am-9pm) but I had the best time. Congratulations to Aisa Ipac, Melai Entuna and Ana Gonzales for a very successful event and thank you for making this happen! And thank you to all our sponsors! Till the next one!
