Hello beautiful people! I thought I might share some tips and tricks from the recent bazaar that I went to. Although it was a mom and baby’s fair, I’m pretty sure this will be helpful if you’re one who enjoys discounted shopping. 😉
Think of Divi or tiangge, that’s what you can expect in a bazaar. Only that, you can’t haggle with the price of the items since everything inside is already discounted. You also have to pay for an entrance fee per head before you can avail the perks inside.
It’s really fun shopping at bazaars and also time consuming at the same time! If you happen to go spontaneously, make sure you’re not in a hurry for you to enjoy. I’ve only been to a bazaar twice (Bloggers United and Momzilla Fair) this year and this is what I’ve learned:
1. Make sure to research ahead.
With Instagram and Facebook, there’s no way you’d get lost. Research ahead about a fair or bazaar you want to go to. Each one is unique and has a theme, for example: Bloggers United 13 – Back To Cool, 7th Momzilla Fair – Holiday Edition.
With their specific slogans, you’ll get an idea of the activities inside the bazaar and what they’re going to sell. The bigger the venue, the many sellers it can cater! Different booths offer the same products at a different price. And since everything is already discounted, you can’t haggle (or ask for tawad) anymore. Make sure to compare prices before impulsively buying and then find out later that another booth sells the same item at a cheaper rate.
2. Be keen in joining giveaways!
Either they’ll schedule it before the event (countdown) or during the day (hourly), it never hurts to join and (possibly) win a thing or two. Make sure to follow their social media account(s) to stay updated with the latest giveaway/raffle promo.
3. Navigate your way around like a pro.
Trust me on this, the place can be a bit overwhelming with all the people going in and out, multiple sellers in a tiny booth, etc. *crazy!* What I personally do is screenshot the map on my phone (they usually post it days before) and take note of the booths that I want to go to. If I still have some time left, I then window shop to other booths after.
