9th Sinulog Export Overruns & Consumer Bazaar

The Biggest Popular Bazaar in the Southern Philippines. January 11 to 21, 2008, Cebu Trade Hall, 3F SM City Cebu. Would you like to see or buy yourself fashion accessories coming from Pakistan, export overruns; Levis, Hollister, Ann Taylor, local products and many more… Then, go to the Sinulog Export Overruns and Consumer Bazaar at the SM City Cebu Trade Hall where consumer products are being displayed and sold.

This yearly event gathers some of the best indigenous finds from all over the country, including delicate embroideries from Laguna, carvings from Baguio, wood crafts from Palawan, bamboo products from Southern Leyte, dried flowers from Saranggani Province, and furnitures from Cebu. With such exciting merchandise mix every year, the bazaar has become one of Sinulog’s must-see attractions, constantly drawing a growing number of Sinulog crowd who flock to Cebu both to experience the country’s biggest religious celebration and all-out festive shopping.

The bazaar is also the place to be for fashionistas looking for branded garments and accessories at reasonable prices. For regulars who intend to find familiar names and product lines, the bazaar staples are definitely still there. The event continues to draw a growing number of visitors each year, not only for its interesting product line but competitive prices as well. And the bazaar, being a mine place for rare yet practical finds, brings back to Cebu G.O. Engineering’s ingenious charcoal stove. An invention of a Pinoy engineer, Rizal Obligar, the stove now comes in metallic bronze and updated with a pull-out ash tray for easier maintenance. Wholesale buyers can also source their merchandise at the bazaar.

For regulars who intend to find familiar names and product lines, the bazaar staples are definitely still there. From Jayper slippers and sandals, to Laguna’s embroideries, hand carvings and bamboo crafts from Abra, fashion accessories from Cebu and Zamboanga and a delightful collection of regional delicacies.

I went there last Sunday to see it for myself and also to take some pictures here and there. I got to sneak an image since not all exhibitors are willing to "display" there products on the net.

Note: Ok, why the pictures? Most of us or majority of us are visual learners, meaning we get more information if we see things rather than imagining it. It also get not only our eyes but also our brain’s imagination more with and existing stimulation.
