Here is another interesting store which features all Philippine Made, specially designed and locally manufactured home decoratives, aromatherapy, bath & beauty products, gift novelties, and fashion accessories. COLOR THEORY subsists on the endeavor to provide consumers affordable yet valuable commodities, support local industries and pioneer in commerce. The store is nice and this is one of those that you go to if you don’t the hassle of Tiangge’s and Mall traffic this holiday season. This is a good place to buy gifts that is proudly Filipino made (although one could argue that you can also get them from Tiangge or Tiendesitas). I got this also from the Shopkeeper article.
My wife was not so happy about this place because I told her there would be dresses here and she was disappointed to see that there was none. Also, they don’t give you price incentive to buy it here versus their outlets in the malls or other establishments. Anyway, I’ll give you a virtual tour of this place and decide for your self if you want to check it out.
GET HAPPY and LUCY IN THE SKY ACCESSORIES by Happy David (0918-942 2305). The stuff did not appeal to my wife and was not too excited about these accessories. She argues that this was not a destination place for this and you don’t have to go all the way to the Fort to get one.
PoBi (Power Bitch) by Lynn Monroy. Individualistic bags that feature the designer’s original and own interpretations of her favorite prints (0927-5800136) Interesting designs but it lacks that fashion punch or maybe we are not the target market.
BELLIYA’s Handpoured candles, Home & Gift Accessories by Maripi and Ana Menendez (0918-9422305). Candles seems to be passe these days and it lost that elegance. Although, there is a buddha candle and a yin yang candle that we find very interesting.
