NOEL Bazaar at the Filinvest Tent

Christmas bazaar season is finally here! And I got to go to my first one - the Noel Bazaar at the Filinvest Tent, located along Commerce Avenue corner Spectrum Midway in Alabang. It is currently ongoing until October 27 from 1pm to 11pm.

I believe regular entrance is P100 but we got in for free yesterday since no entrance fees on Monday to Wednesday.

The venue is fairly small compared to the World Trade Center or SMX, but there were still lots of finds and interesting things to check out. We went at around 4pm and there weren't that much people yet, which made it so much more enjoyable to look around.

This stall below was probably the most popular one in the bazaar - everything for P100! But you have to check the items carefully for damages since they're export overruns.

There's also food stalls inside the venue like Yellow Cab, Sbarro, Tapa King, as well as other food items for sale.

To complement the shopping event, the Mercato Centrale group is holding an outdoor food fair for those who want a break from their usual fares. We really enjoyed this part since the weather was nice and cool during the time we went. Although I wish there were more food stalls to choose from (I think there were just about 7 vendors, but maybe it will increase during the weekend).

We ate merienda right before we entered the bazaar...

 And then had a quick dinner before heading home...

Here's what I ended up buying:

bangle - P350, rings - P100 each
striped shirts (the material is super nice and soft) - 2 for P250
long cardigan - P100 from the export overruns stall
our pasalubong for the kids - Monsters Inc. toys for P200
Christmas tags - P20 per pack of 100 pcs.

I didn't buy so much since there are still so many bazaars in the coming weeks. And besides, I'm still hoping to squeeze in another Divisoria trip before Christmas comes (fingers crossed!).

So hurry to the Noel Bazaar if you want to catch the last day of the free entrance (although it will run until October 27). If you don't get to go this weekend, you can catch the bazaar at the World Trade Center on November 22 - December 1 and then back at the Filinvest Tent on December 19 - 22.  Check out Noel Bazaar's FB page for more details.
