GPB11: Fab Manila

NOTE:  The Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (GPB11) series is a number of posts regarding merchants and sellers; and their unique and unusual creations, of which I had the utmost pleasure of discovering at Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (read a short introduction of my bazaar experience here.)  J

I'm one of those people who was such a late bloomer when it came to online shopping for anything fashion-related.  Books were a different matter, since I consider them less complicated than clothing and accessories.  With the former, there was size, fit and a whole lot of things to take into consideration.  You wouldn't want to end up with an online find you won't use since it didn't meet your expectations once it finally arrived, right?

Oh sure, I'd browse through dozens of online shops through the wee hours of the morning, filling my eyes with such cute and drool-wrothy merchandise.  But try as I might, I could never bring myself to purchase any.

I finally mustered up the courage (I'm not particularly sure if this is the correct term  J) to purchase items online before leaving for Singapore late last year.  And it was in Fab Manila that I made my very first fashion-related online purchase.

My initial haul?  A brown messenger bag (apologies for I forgot the name and price of it already as they also do not have this in stock anymore), a blue Gadget organizer (Php350) and a violet Travel envelope (395.)

I love their items, needless to say all of these have been with me through some of my most memorable moments (the bag during the times I had to stay in school for 8 hours polishing my graduate school thesis, the travel envelope when I went to trips abroad, the gadget organizer that neatly stows away my messy chargers and remotes.)

So when I saw Fab Manila at the Global Pinoy Bazaar, I just knew I had to buy something from them again.

Cam sleeve

This time I bought a cam sleeve, which was selling for Php50 only!  Woohooo!!!  Just what I needed to store my Sony point-and-shoot camera.

Peek-a-boo, I see you!

There's still a long list of Fab Manila items I want to purchase (photos taken from the Fab Manila website.)

Polly wristlet (Php150)

Oilcloth pouch (Php99)

Le Sac (Php495)

One by one, you'll all be mine...  J
