Of all the traits a Filipino possesses, I believe ingenuity is the best characteristic we have. We can create out of anything, from scratch, raw materials, wood, natural products even plastic and metal. Out of these raw resources come the most stylish, innovative, creative and definitely one-of-a-kind pieces and items that Filipinos truly love and foreign visitors undeniably adore. To find these hard-to-find items, you need to go to a handicraft store or the natural product section of the department store just to buy these stuff. Aside from the price which is a little bit too high, at times, stores do not have what you are looking for and what you want or need. Collectible items, precious necklaces, vintage products and all natural fashion items can only be found in a specific marketplace.
Then, I found this newest, hippest and definitely Filipino online shopping in town.
