Markets by Jaya One is back for the 17th time in a row since they started 5 years ago, marking it's final installment for the year 2015. Who else over here is panicking like me because we have yet to shop for Christmas presents and Christmas is less than 2 weeks away!
If you guys are not familiar about Markets bazaar by Jaya One, you can read my previous post about it here. Hope that would at least give you guys a gist of what to expect for this weekend's Markets!
Date: 12th &13th December 2015
Location: The Square Jaya One (not the school)
Time really ain't gonna wait for any of us, just a blink of an eye a week has gone by just like that.
This also reminds me, i apologize for the sudden week long hiatus due to last minute work projects which i can't wait to share with you guys :Ｄ
It's been so long since i last did something this crazy, not slept for 6 days straight trying to finish sewing everything lol.
More reasons to visit them for every single installment because you'll never know what to expect from them lol.
Those of you who want to make Christmas experience a lil different this year, can start by ditching the mainstream commercialized overrated gifts and try getting them something unique yet wallet friendly at the bazaar! There are just so many hidden gems here, all you need to do is keep a sharp lookout for them and who knows you might score yourself something irreplaceable!
Many of the artisan goods sold here are of limited quantity, carefully handmade with love by local talented aspiring entrepreneurs, by purchasing from them you are also supporting their local business in a way :)
Will you guys support my works if i were to do so? lol.
Don't worry about it just being about food and fashion finds (that's usually the bundle i hit first as i am a fashion thrift shopper lol), as they have many other stuff to offer like baby section (cute clothes & handmade toys!), handcrafted arts and craft, artisan beauty section, DIY booths and even live band performances to keep you guys entertained as you go around shopping.
As this installment is slightly special than their usual other markets installments because it's their 5th anniversary so there will be mouth watering homemade food from over 100 specially curated vendors. Sponsored by Shopee Malaysia, this last installment of the year is upping the ante by featuring new thrills such as car boot sales by Honda Malaysia, freebies giveaways by Yelp and various other contests.
So, it's a shop and win time for you guys!
