Top 10 Finds from the St. James Bazaar
We checked out the biggest bazaar in the South and found a treasure trove of ideas for your gift list (or wish list)!
(SPOT.ph) It's been an annual event for 22 years, with over 500 concessionaires-most of whom signed up as early as September-selling everything from food, to home décor, to fashion accessories. The St. James Bazaar in Ayala Alabang is always a great place to get all your Christmas shopping done in one go, but if you didn't get a chance to make the trek south, we're listing 10 of our favorites.

Pouches are great for keeping everything in your bag in some semblance of order, and the ones from Izzoshop sport clever, cute phrases that make them that much nicer to actually use. Our favorite: a pouch that says "I'm only pretending to be organized."
