April 11-13, 2014 marked another first for me and for my still budding own clothing line, Miss Merie. It was actually a first time for Miss Merie to participate in a big and eventful bazaar. Held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, an experience that for me was still worth it.

Truth be told, being a "one-man team" isn't easy. Joining this bazaar was actually a rush. From sourcing fabrics to designing to packaging and all to everything -- it was tiring but fulfilling. Not to mention pocket-burning. Nonetheless, it was all charged to a great experience.
I shared the booth with The Berries. I met the whole bunch because of Micah, Luke's friend. And the rest is history.
|The Berries pretty floral pieces|
|This is my side of the booth. I started with really few pieces.|
|The top that got sold out first. I don't even have my own. It's a favorite.|
|This floral print is also a bestseller.|
|My packaging for the bazaar. I do hope that I can own this paper bag. I really like it.|
|Talking to RV, my greatest encourager and motivator!!|
|With my bestfriends who never fail in showing support!!!|
This bazaar will not bthe only bazaar I will participate in. I'm definitely looking forward to the next. I've gathered lessons to make it better next time around. It was such an enriching and learning experience and I thank everyone most especially the One up there who made it possible.
