10 Cool Sellers at Artifact, Alabang Town Center
We found flamingoes, aromatherapy pillows, and more at the weekend pop-up.
(SPOT.ph) With Christmas just around the merry corner, we welcome weekend bazaars that give us a headstart on our holiday shopping (and yay, another reason to shop!). Over the weekend, we checked out Ampersand Collective's Artifact pop-up from October 2 to 4 at Alabang Town Center featuring home trinkets, and even furniture pieces perfect for gift-giving.
Here are our top 10 picks:
What’s not to love about a shop that offers flamingoes, pineapple catch-alls, and polka-dotted placemats? Completing the glam poolside vibe (piña colada, please!) are modern tropical Silla Loca chairs and beautifully packaged Philippa coconut oil-based soaps.
Elle + Ken
#Yayprons! Whip up your kitchen specialties in style with denim aprons from Elle + Ken. After all, you have no reason not to look easy breezy when taking selfies as you nuke your signature baked chicken.

Local perfumes in classy bottles with dreamy, hugot names like “Kilig,” “Sulyap,” and “Unang Halik” are guaranteed to get our attention. They also have this ingenious product appropriately called “Trono Poop Drop” to keep your bathroom affairs discreet.
Earl Estrera’s reclaimed and repurposed furniture pieces are perfect for those who are looking for alternatives from the usual streamlined kind. His staggered chest drawers and cassette tape coffee table are conversation-starters. He accepts custom orders, too.
If you’re looking to lend a rustic and classic touch to your photos for functional decorating, the folks at this store can turn them into coasters and wall hangings using wood.
We imagine the colorful crochet rugs and vintage-y wall hangings looking right at home in chic spaces. They also have throw pillows in punchy colors ready to give love to a staid couch and lonely occasional chairs.

This shop’s adorable teepee, pillows, and beanbags make us wish we could have a second childhood. We’re embarrassed to admit that we actually had the urge to crawl inside the teepee while no one was looking!
How does the idea of a microwavable pillow for aromatherapy and thermotherapy sound? Good. And it feels and smells good, too! The XS ones would make for great stocking stuffers for officemates and friends.
We are smitten with The Wareshop’s little plates and bowls that are laden with elegant quirk perfect to use as a jewelry dish or tabletop décor.
