Bright and early on Saturday, we headed to the SSIS Charity Bazaar.
We’ve been going since 2009 and there’s always nice items at very good prices!
Yup! That’s a water cooler cover!
Books for 20,000 VND! Even the hardcovers!
Vietnam Vespa Adventures came to talk about their services. I am convinced. But I need to convince the hubby and friends.
My goal for the bazaar is to get postcards and Christmas cards. And yup, these were my first buy of the day.
Postcards from Global Village Momentos (firstname.lastname@example.org). Their designs are awesome! And yes, I bought Sharpies from them too!
Very Ngon Homewares was there too. Their fabrics are unique and beautiful. Great idea for gifts!
This shop is delightful. They have magnet boards, cake bags, and lap tables that have cushions! Terrific idea!
I would have loved to get a basket from this but I was driving a bicycle. 😦
More beautiful fabric turned into clutch bags. Verrrry pretty!Peaceman Vietnam brought their tees. Part of their proceeds go to two orphanages.
Finally met Bridget March! Her watercolors are just inspiring! I had to get Christmas cards from her. Now I’m regretting I didn’t buy her postcards. 😦
Another good find is the Artful Gallery.
The photography is just amazing!
They’ve got a shop in Nha Trang and they’ll be opening a shop soon too in Saigon.
Another must try is the La Petite Epicerie. The fruits of the jams are all sourced within Vietnam, then processed and cooked by French chefs in Saigon. We love the Pineapple Cinnamon and Mango Ginger!
Another thing I regret is not buying more candles from Linhtinh. Their candles are affordable!
Another unique find is this shop selling cinnamon Christmas ornaments! They smelled like Christmas! I’m sorry I didn’t get their contact number. 😦
Got a cinnamon candle here too. Now I wish I bought the dragonfly rope for the tree. Sigh.Products by Playful Sweets by Ms. Lisa Featherstone were lovely! Sometimes I wish I have a baby girl for these stuff —
If you want to buy a non la or the Vietnamese conical hat —There were lots more to see and buy but sadly, I didn’t have much cash on me. 😛
Thank God the bazaar only happens once a year or else, I’d always be broke. Sam wouldn’t be happy going to bazaars all the time as well.
Yup that’s him in the middle of the bazaar trying not to be bored. Boys.
