Markets Fourteen @ Jaya One

Happee Friday my awesomesauces!!

I am so looking forward to this weekend, mainly because its been such a hectic work week, and I’m in a dire need of a good shopping and day out with the girlfriends ❤

Tomorrow I’ll be heading out to Jaya One to experience the 14th Markets @ Jaya One. If you recall, I’ve been attending Markets religiously since their 10th Installation, lol! #LoyalCustomerAlert! If you’re wondering what to do on a sunny Saturday morning, why not come and join me tomorrow?

Date: 20th December 2014, Saturday
Time: 11am to 9pm
Venue: The School, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya

Here’s a throwback pic from one of their previous Markets.

Markets @ Jaya One (4)

The Markets is held quarterly, and is back for its 14th installation in its regular location, at The School in Jaya One. If you’re in need of some last minute Christmas shopping, I highly suggest you drop by for massive sales, and a shopping paradise where everything and anything is literally a few footsteps away.

Markets 14 - Vendors list

There will be more than 60 specially selected vendors offering fashion, food, homemade paraphernalia, and a whole lot more of other amazing items. 

As always, Markets have been stepping up their game every quarter, and this no, they are introducing Special Sales Hours, where you can find  amazing discounts at selected vendors during those certain times.

Not only that, the first 1,200 visitors will be taking home special goodie bags filled with products and shopping vouchers!

AND, if you get hungry, not to fret, there will be a whole lot of food trucks selling a variety of yummy meals.

PS: A lil’ birdie told me that there will be a Photo Corner, where one lucky person with the most creative picture will win a Xiaomi smartphone, so go crazy 😀

And as a Market veteran, here are some good ol’ wise tips you should/must know: 

1. Dress for warm weather. Even though the bazaar is held indoors this time, a lot of the clothing stores will still be outside in the heat, so think summer!

2. Collect business cards for stores that you are interested in. At Markets, most of the booths will have their business cards handy, and if you spot a store that you may want to look up sometime, you better pick up their card!

3. Carry a tote bag to fill up your purchases. Most booths will have a no-plastic bag policy, so you might want to bring a tote of your own to tote around haha..

4. Bring a bottle of water. Its amazing, I could find stores selling all sorts of drinks, but I couldn’t find one that sold H2O. The horror :O

5. Oh, and bring cash, hahaha. Most of the booths will not be accepting credit/debit cards. 🙂 Cash is king yo!

Markets at Jaya One Easter Extravaganza!

Hello hump day. :/

I cant wait for this week to be over already, since I’m superduperultramegalord excited about this Saturday! What’s going on this weekend that has got ye old me abuzz?  I’ve got an Easter Bunny to catch. 😀

If you’re familiar with the local Malaysian bazaar and festivals scene, you would have come across the Markets at Jaya One at some point. This bazaar has been one of my favourite ones to attend for a while now, and I’ve been dragging le boyf to all of the ones I did go to!

This will be Markets 12th time organizing  their seasonal bazaar and its one you should keep an eye out for.

Markets at Jaya One

Markets happens every 2 months once so (give or take) , so I do make it a point to attend when I can. They have played host to more than 80 vendors ranging from clothing and craft to food and housewares and many more!

One of the reasons why Markets is one of my favourite bazaars to attend is solely due to the fact that its held outdoors, on a bright sunny day with fun and quirky stuff all around me. I’ve been attending these kinds of bazaars since I could remember, and they always make really happy on the inside. I remember going out with my family on an early Sunday morning to visit local antique markets and I loved every moment of it. 

Markets is no antique market BTW, it boasts the most creative, fun and quirkiest of our local talents with a penchant for knick-knacks, one of a kind items and vintage fashion.

Markets usually has certain themes to their bazaars, and I think the last one they had in September was themed Uniquely Malaysian, where they had a Lorong Makan ( food alley) filled to the brim with homegrown vendors, talents and entrepreneurs.

This time round, they’ve got Easter Bunny in da house! Apart from having an Easter Bunny Pinata, there’s a swap for charity going on at the same time. Trade your pre-loved clothes for a good cause, with a minimum of RM5 donation entry fee, you get to exchange your stuff with friends and help out the people at Chow Kit Youths CKY!

Here’s how the Charity Swap works 🙂

Markets at Jaya One1

Aside from charity swapping, Markets usually boasts quite a number of vendors who will be selling their craft-wares, clothes and even food! Considering the fact that most of the vendors usually operate online, here’s your chance to shop for their stuff OFFline!

Some of the vendors I know who will be around?

Claire Organics, Individium, Deeper Than Fashion, and a whole lot more. They usually don’t announce all the vendors who will be around, so I’m in for quite a surprise this weekend! I’m hoping MyBurger Lab makes a show too 🙂 I’ve been itching for one their burgers for a while now.

I don’t know if this might be applicable, but this is the list of vendors who were around during the last Markets in September, and I know at least half of them will show up again! Markets not only gives the vendors a chance to sell their wares, but to actually talk/meet and interact with their customers on a more personal level which is sometimes difficult to achieve when doing business online.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet & Bazaar 2014

Fashion lovers , I have GRRREEATT news for you!!  😀

The Malaysia Clothes Buffet is back for its 4th Installment, and this time around, it’s going to be held for 3 days with 50,000 items up for grabs! Read up for the juicy deets!

578581_281426665354820_643388407_n

I was at last years Clothes Buffet and I managed to stuff 8 items only into my bag. I got two skirts, 4 dresses & two tops. The record to break is 16 items! I wonder who that girl is, I need to pick some tips up from her.

How does the Clothes Buffet work?

Buy a ziplock baggie for RM60, and you’re given 15 minutes to stuff everything you can into the bag! If you manage to lock the bag, everything in it is yours.
FYI though girls, there is a penalty of RM20 if your bag is torn, so be careful!

This is how big the bags are, I think they’re 9 inches x 14 inches in size.

Venue : Syopz Mall in Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus

How do you purchase the baggies? You have two options, one is to attend on the day and buy one bag, BUT, as my experience tells me, the crowds will massive, so I would suggest you to pre-purchase the bags by clicking here. The link will take you to the app where you can buy the bag in advance.

The crowd you can expect?
