I SOLD MY MAKEUP... AGAIN! (Manila Sundance Bazaar 2018)

Last time, I joined Bloggers United where I was able to acquire money that I used for my dog's stone surgery. I was thankful that though I let go of my stuff, the money that I got from it saved the life of my most loved dog, Fluffy! 

This time, I joined Manila Sundance Bazaar for yet another makeup and skin care destash and resell! 

I have honestly been aiming to let go of my unused and new makeup. But since I haven't done a proper, extensive makeup collection video yet, letting go of them has been very difficult. 

The easiest for me to let go are the skin care products. I have acne-prone skin so I'm always scared to try each and every product I get. I keep the boxes and bottles unopened if I know I would only use the item once. I want my buyers to not only save money when they buy from me but I also want them to get quality stuff.

I also make sure that none of the items I sell are expired or broken. 

To see how I choose which items to sell and how I pack them for a bazaar, be sure to watch the video below!

Manila Sundance Bazaar always holds events like this at different places and various malls. The one that I participated in was last October 4, 5 and 6, 2018 at the Megatrade Hall 1 in SM Megamall in Ortigas. 

I did not vlog because I want to be able to focus on the bazaar and maybe have a chit-chat with my buyers. I sold various stuff from my pre-loved clothes, to brand new makeup, unused skin care items, bags to food such as my Mom's Yema Spread business and some trendy food like dream cake and gourmet tuyo. Now that's what we call a sari-sari store!

I just really hope brands that send me free stuff don't get mad or offended when they see me sell their stuff. I mean, I sell them at 50%-70% OFF! Also, not because I sell something doesn't mean I don't like it or it's not good and effective. Sometimes I sell an item when I feel like I want other people who need it more than I do to be able to get it at a discounted price.

My favorite part about bazaars like this is that followers and buyers get to save money from buying my brand new and discounted items and then I also get to meet the faces behind the names that watch, click and like my posts on the internet. *hehe*

These are the girls I was with the whole 3-day bazaar! I thank them for being with me!

Some Fluffies also went out of their way and accompanied me at the booth. Shoutout to Anna and Klyde for hanging out at the booth and keeping me company!

It's cute how we made friends with the sellers in front of our booth. This is Aiko of RMK online shop. I love being with people like her who are always bubbly, jolly and funny! It was also cute how she bought a lot of items from my booth while my friends and I also bought items from their booth! *haha*

It was a long, tiring day but always worth it in the end especially when I'm given sincere smiles and hugs!

I was not able to take a photo with each and every person who went to my bazaar. Here are the few ones I was able to quickly snap. 

I would like to thank all the people who went to the bazaar. I really appreciate that you took the time to drop by. I remember 1 person even came all the way from Laguna! It was also cute how some girls went with their BF or Husband. (Wow, sana all may love life! hehe) 

I never really expect anything when I hold meet-ups like this. But just to show gratitude, I post the gifts and letters that I get. Here are sweet gifts and notes given to me that day. I really appreciate "DIY" gifts the most. Why? Because for me DIYs are equivalent to giving someone your time. Because when you make something from scratch, you spend your precious time creating it. Hence, it comes with love and sincere intention. I am not saying bought and ready-made gifts are not sincere. I guess I'm just trying to tell you guys that you really don't have to give me anything bought or expensive. Even if it's just a small note, I will greatly appreciate it! So, thank you so much for these!

One of the most memorable gifts from that day was these packed lunch boxes inspired from K-pop. If you are not familiar, Kpop fans prepare and gift their idols packed lunch, especially if the group is currently busy doing song promos, long shoots and participating at an event.

These lunch boxes were given by my follower, Klyde!
