My wife and I both have roots in Negros. So when the trade fair came into town, it was imperative that we go. And we were not disappointed! We found some really excellent quality items there — this trade fair (unlike many bazaars today) was not about cheap prices but about high quality.

Here we list our favorite finds from the bazaar (in alphabetical order – click to see a bigger picture):
