I always have mixed emotions with the St. James Bazaar.
On one hand, it’s so exciting because they have fantastic, unique booths occupying not 1, not 2, not 3 but FOUR huge spaces in cuenca!!! Shopping galore OMG!!! @_@ On the other hand, this bazaar is always jam-packed that it’s really so hard to enjoy shopping due to the crowd & heat (sun & body)! And some guests are really disrespectful of personal space just so they can park & get to the bazaar! Even reserved spaces aren’t sacred anymore, they would actually move the blocking objects and still park their vehicles on spaces intended for homeowners’ own vehicles. Now that’s what you call inconsiderate! :((
This morning, my 2 girls & I braved the 1st day of the bazaar.
Just a bridge away! ;)
It wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be. Sure, it was hot. And yes, traffic & parking is still CRAZEEEE!!! But I didn’t faint & I was able to buy some nice finds. Last year, I was so drained that I wasn’t in the mood to shop anymore. For those who know me, this is SO NOT ORDINARY!!! ;))
Most of the items for sale are still clothes, but there are some very interesting & unique wares…
Personalized santa bags 500php . C-U-T-E!!! <3 Sayang, as I already have something similar to these.. If you don’t have this yet, but one. Great way to hide your all kid’s gifts! m/
