MAAD November 2011

MAAD stands for Market for Artists and Designers and this event is usually held every first Friday of the month. With the revamped MAAD format, the event is held at night and there are performances held at the same time. If you haven’t been to MAAD before, it is definitely worth the visit.

Suitcase Display Case

Sellers at this event are friendly and they can event give you a lot of product information for a piece that you are interested in. We met some new folks are reconnected with old ones. We were fortunate enough to be at the same spot as our friends Yen from Yen Paintings and Joyce from Chic Noir. Other friends,  Sylvia from Bon Chat and Corine from Cloud9to5 got spots at the inside. I didn’t have time to take a photo of Joyce’s booth as there were always customer’s there when I wanted to take a shot.

Yen's Paintings and Photograph Prints

Yen made a cool sketch of our booth. She did it so quickly and I do love it. We were talking with her and Joyce the whole night long that I almost forgot about the humid weather outside. Great company made the experience so much fun.

Lovely bags, cards and shirts from Sylvia of Bon Chat

Corine's from Crochet Pouches made from high quality merino wool

Here are a few of our favorite shops at MAAD:

Illustrations from Wu Yanrong

Handmade Rubber Stamps from DROOL

Cute Notebooks with Smart Slogans from Epigram Books

Couldn’t resist and bought the pink one that says “I’m not sensitive. I’m in touch with my feelings.” I was told by one of the ladies from Epigram books that this notebook used to be a corporate gift for Clients and they were so popular that they decided to sell them. Cool idea. 

Handmade Books from Osanpo Craft

We bought this book when we were at Public Garden. It was nice to see Christine and gang at MAAD.  Get this book if you’d like an independent guide about Singapore.

Public Garden: F1 Pit Flea Market

We registered as sellers for the Public Garden Flea Market which was held at the second floor of the F1 Pit Building beside the Singapore Flyer.

When we got to the parking lot we didn’t see a lot of people around but when we got to the venue there was a good size crowd inside. I have to say that the Public Garden Team does very good marketing for the event. The location is a bit remote but the customers were there. Their social media reaches the right demographics and people were there to buy and not just browse.

Our Booth with our DIY Wooden Display Stands

We also met some great sellers and there were a lot of indie brands in the event. There were vendors selling pastries, ice cream, clothes, stationery, art and even books. The only thing lacking was someone selling cold drinks which we are very fond of.

Bought this informative little book from alter:sg

We met one of the writers, Christine since she bought our wax seals. When I was able to walk around during my snack break I saw their table and popped by. It’s so interesting to meet authors. The book was a joint project between friends who wanted to bring a fresh perspective to interesting places in Singapore. We got a copy and we recommend you get yours.

Loved the Raspberry Chocolate Cupcake

Milk Bar was one of the first stalls we saw when we came to set-up. They had their tables by the entrance. We tried the Raspberry Chocolate Cupcake which was so yummy. The icing was light and cool while the chocolate cupcake was decadent. See their products and get tempted at www.milkbar.com.sg

Illustrations and prints by minifanfan

The illustrations from minifanfan caught my eye. The illustrations are unique plus the ladies manning the booth were quite friendly. Find more of their work at www.minifanfan.com

Cool items from the little drom store

The necklaces and pins from the little drom store were just so cute that you had to stop and look around at the other things being sold at the table. Stop by their site at www.thelittledromstore.com

How can you not love these faux wax sealed clutches for Veira

So it’s no secret that we love wax seals and we couldn’t help but just love the bags that Veira made. Support this local designer and buy her products at www.iloveveira.com

Plushies, pins and other cute things from Mimipong
