I'd been part of the Fashion Bazaar for 3 days but I feel like I had known the people and other vendors with me for a long time .The way we chat and talked to each other during the day made me feel like I belong to their group . The 2nd table after mine and right beside Angeline's was by another Jewelry Crafter named Raymond. He's a very nice and also very easy to get along with Singaporean Chinese guy who's the eye and hands for creating handmade Beaded jewelries too. We had shared some ideas on how we created our jewelries especially with wiring techniques. Just like me, he'd never been to any beading lessons to learn the craft. It was just pure passion and a hobby.
He would always come to my table to see my displayed items and ask if I'm doing Ok with sales. He had shown me a very attractive bracelet piece he'd just finished . It was generously made with Swarovski Crystals & Pearl Beads accented with Sterling Silver findings . A pity I was not able to ask him if I can take a picture of it to show here in my blog . That piece was an absolute stunner !
He also makes Simple but elegant Pearls & Crystals beaded earrings , as well as Bracelets and Necklaces with great sense of style . He has his own Company called AZORE and manages a Pushcart where he sells most of his own made stuff + other ready made Sterling Silver pieces he had sorted out from other countries inside Vivocity which was according to him was located just beside the Golden Village. I will surely come down one of these days to check it out ...
Once someone was born a natural crafter , the urge to create something artistic cannot be hindered by anyhting ... be it the poor lighting , lack of necessary table & materials nor even a sauna heat like environment with so much sound distractions all around you !
All praises for Raymond for doing a great job and enjoying what he's doing anywhere ... anytime !

FACIALS ... Anyone ?
The Fashion Fair Bazaar was over but the lasting effect of it to all the participants ( local Chinese / Mixed Singaporeans and 1 Filipino who was solely me of course ! ) came with mixed positive and negative sides. Positive in the sense, I met & gained new friends and in a way became part of their community even for a short period of time. I was able to mingle more with the local Singaporeans , be a part of them somehow for the last 3 days during the event ( which I really enjoyed and appreciated a lot despite of the poor sales outcome suffered by most of the vendors brought about by lack of buying power from the public ) and realized how hardworking these people are and how they face and manage the challenges of their chosen careers .
My neighboring table to the right side was managed by Angeline who had admitted to me that she had started selling Facial & Eye Masks beauty products from Taiwan only 4 months ago. Her items with an extensive range of over 40 types of Facial Masks like Q10 Collagen Mask, Ginseng extract Mask & Deep Ocean Mask & also Eye Masks like Hydrating Eye Bag mask , Q10 Elastin Eye Bag Mask just to name a few comes in handy and ready to take anywhere . These products are super affordable , very handy to take anywhere and very easy to use . It will only take about 20-30 mins. to apply the product and you'll feel the difference it makes afterwards ... Guaranteed !
Angeline is a very friendly local Singaporean lady with matching nice and friendly husband too. We always find some time to chat over woes about how the fair was organized the pros & cons of it , the kind of buyers we encounter and exchanging ideas on how to introduce our products more to the buying public together with other vendors . I bought some of her collagen eye bag patches to try when I get home especially for tomorrow Sunday while I take my beauty rest at last !

" FASHION FAIR "
Where ? Atrium Dome ( Beside Plaza Singapura Orchard Rd. )
When ? Sept 25-27 from ( 12:00 - 10:00pm )
The 1st day of the bazaar wasn't that exciting ... although I was happy I was able to set up my table in time. The event place was too hot due to low ceiling and lack of fans for more ventilation . Whew .... it's an absolute sauna from 1:00 - 4pm .
Sales wasn't that good for the moment either although traffic of people wasn't that bad, I always have people attracted to my displayed items the moment they pass my table . It's a good sign people like my items and spread the news to their relatives, friends and office mates. I'm always happy when My-SECRET-Corner gets recognized by word of mouth ...
Car park was also a hassle since I need to take the car all the way up to the top deck of Plaza Singapura car Park. The Atrium Car park was closed at a certain time during the night and available for Season's Card Holders only. Such a Disaster coz I need to push my trolley of things in the middle of Carrefour inside Plaza Singapura ,,, so what I did, I just left all my stuff and things at the venue and covered them with my textile materials ! My biggest worries and fear is - I just hope they don't get stolen overnight !
Well it's too early to complain since it was only the 1st day though but hoping today the 2nd day and tomorrow the last day of the bazaar would be a much better experience as well as better business for all vendors.

It's been almost a week after I had surgery and my dressings are still there. Tomorrow I'll have to visit my doctor for check up and see if the wounds had healed well.
Being home lately for a couple of days made me do some cleaning up in My-SECRET-Corner Beadroom and did some inventory ... woosshhh ! I got dizzy from time to time not because of pain from stitches but from knowing I got so much beads hidden in the cabinets. So what I did was sort them out , place them neatly in plastic bottles and create a few things out of them .
So now, I got More necklace holders ( about a dozen more of it in assorted colors since I already sold some to friends and they were asking for more ... hurray ! It was a huge success ! ), more fancy dangling earrings for the party girls like me and my social friends like as usual and a few sets of long Necklaces with matching earrings .
Here are some of the earrings :

Today is the 1st day of the month and I just came back from Belgium the other day.
