It’s that time of the year again. One of the metro’s most exquisite bazaars is finally happening tomorrow and we can’t wait to see all the fine, proudly Filipino products that ArteFino’s brands have in store for us. To organize our shopping, we came up with this wishlist of new things that have piqued our interest (and had us daydreaming), so we won’t be scrambling around The Fifth at Rockwell for the next few days. We're sure these novelty items from these fresh brands will be the next classics.
