It’s that time of the year when the talk of Christmas decorations, holiday travel plans and gift shopping arise in the air. With bazaars filling up calendars, each one lined in rows of new products and brands – there comes a nostalgic twist to the weekend affair on December 2 and 3, 2017 at Warehouse Eight, La Fuerza Plaza, Makati.
‘Istorya Ng Pasko’ is the 2nd installment of a vintage appreciation fair that first opened up its doors last March. A charming scene of passionate antique vendors selling, to name a few, vintage typewriters, stamps, coins, cameras, books, and spectacle frames.
In collaboration with The Curious Artisan and Warehouse Eight, they’re bringing back the intimate gathering of collectors, hobbyists and enthusiasts over their common love of the past. “We wanted to create an intimate and approachable setting to bridge the gap between people who have been collecting for a long time and people who are not as familiar, but would like to be with pieces from our history,” co-owner of Warehouse Eight Kayla Dionisio shared.
