Music fests, weekend bazaars, and the Salcedo Saturday market all have that certain outdoor charm that lure people to stay under the sun, eat, shop, and listen to music. But considering the bipolar Manila weather, events like these can easily go from hit to miss when the rain starts pouring its feelings out.
Enter Spectrum Fair Manila, the brainchild of the mother-daughter bargain hunter tandem, Pia and Alyssa Arellano. Bridging all the things they’ve learned from various markets here and abroad, they're bringing the outdoor experience, indoors—with faux grass and all—to address this weather dilemma. Featuring a harmonious mix of the unique, the exotic, the exquisite and the grand, find great finds for a great bargain in their diverse mix of products that were personally curated by the Arellanos. You'll even get to meet these celebrity merchants below!
