Common Room X Power Plant Mall

If you’ve always wanted to visit the magical happy place that is Common Room, but can’t seem to find the time or energy to trek to their shop in Katipunan, Quezon City, great news: they’ve just opened their new (pop-up) branch at Power Plant Mall in Makati! This charming arts & crafts treasure trove will be there for the next six months, hence their pop-up hashtag #180daysofmaking.  (Note to self: the perfect place to do some Christmas shopping!)

Arts & crafts

Drool over the handcrafted creations from over 60 local artists, crafters and makers (that’s double the amount of partners and concessionaires when they started just a year ago)

 

Craft supplies! Stationery! Paper flowers! Journals! Accessories! Horsies! Handmade dollies! And so much more...

Craft supplies! Stationery! Paper flowers! Journals! Accessories! Horsies! Handmade dollies! Dreamcatchers! But wait, there’s more…

 

Run by sisters Roma (of plushie brand Pop Junk Love) and Maan Agsalud (who runs the Type Kita collective) and a host of dedicated partners, Common Room provides a wonderful home for a growing family local crafters and makers, as well as a workshop space for artists, dreamers, and crafts enthusiasts.

Sandwiched between sisters Maan and Roma Agsalud, the fairy godmothers of the Common Room family. I’m so thrilled that beyond lovely arts and crafts, they have a cool indie book section too, which includes my little poetry book The Heartbreak Diaries!
