A little over a month ago, Papel de Pinay joined yet another Maker’s Market — this time, for a two-day stint at the newly built Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons. For some of you who may not have heard of this event before, Maker’s Market is a seasonal event held by the fine people of Craft MNL. Crafters, makers, artists, and what-have-you’s gather in one event selling stuff from yarns, paints, cutters and sculpture materials, handmade soaps, paper quilled accessories and cards, handpainted paper mache forms, to handstitched leather goods and prints to name a few. It was my second time to join such an event, and being someone who have enjoyed her first Maker’s Market last year, I decided to sell my handmade products for 2 days — the last weekend of June.
It was a fun two days. While I enjoyed entertaining inquiries from buyers, and even passers-by, I also loved the feeling of being surrounded by other makers, such as BioArt.ph, Frou Frou Crafts, Sqooid, Craft Carrot, Sketchnotes, Dagatbeads, and like, 40 others (yes, FORTY). It was the biggest Maker’s Market to date, and I’m so thankful to have been a part of it. Looking forward to the next one! 🙂
