My Top 10 Finds in Little Dapitan Bazaar at Cloverleaf Balintawak!

Christmas came early this side of town – north of Metro Manila – as the “Little Dapitan” Bazaar officially opened yesterday at the open parking lot of Ayala Cloverleaf Malls in Cloverleaf Balintawak.

Consisting of a curated set of booths and sellers from the iconic Dapitan Arcade (Dapitan St.) in Manila, the Little Dapitan Bazaar through Ayala Land, aims to bring its well-loved goods and handicrafts for which they are best known for closer and more accessible to the market. No need to go all the way to Dapitan Arcade because of Ayala, all their best and brightest concessionaires will be under one roof to offer their best products.

A Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony Signalled the Official Opening of Little Dapitan.

At the same time, it comes at an opportune time of the holiday season; and can be considered as a Christmas Bazaar as most of the items we browsed through yesterday are actually in preparation for the Christmas Season.

Top 10 Finds in Little Dapitan

Life-size figures of Santa Claus greeted us at the front entrance of Little Dapitan in yesterday’s media preview, ribbon-cutting ceremonies, and opening day! We also spotted  interesting finds from the set of initial concessionaires!

Here are some our favorites you might want to check out when you visit Little Dapitan bazaar this weekend:

      • This is my personal choice as I actually bought one set for my wife for her small garden at home. These fixtures and other ornaments that can be used to decorate the home.
      • This would be our first time to put-up decorative night lights for her garden. :) A set of 10 bulbs cost Php 1,800 . Of course, I asked for some discount as this is an extension of “Dapitan Arcade” afterall. :)
    • Arts and Crafts by MAC ARts & Crafts (Mac Dela Cruz Santiago)

      • As bloggers, we frequently receive steel crafts as part of packaging, storage, or decors at home. But this was the first time we ever bought one as the wifey got a 12-bottle wine rack and medium-sized steel rack made of iron crafts made by MAC Arts and Crafts.
      • We got the bonze color rack and bronxe color wine-bottle rack; bBoth for a total of P2,200 only! (discounted)
