Meet Pia and Alyssa Arellano, a mother-daughter team and founders of Spectrum Fair Aly is the one on the left and Pia on the right, who could pass as sisters. Both of them love to shop and felt that there weren’t enough well curated bazaars being organized in the Metro. Since Aly started her business, Aly’s Cookie Bar, she felt that it would be nice to have a venue to sell her goodies. This could possibly help others who are in need of a good venue to sell items, one that could capture their target market.
Both Aly and her mom have separate roles and responsibilities for Spectrum. While Ally handling everything from curating the marchants to social media and PR, her mom, Pia handles all the business stuff. I love how it has actually become a family project! Even her younger brother, Josh, who is still in highschool, has ventured into a business with his girlfriend Claudia and will be selling freshly brewed iced tea infused with dalandan.
Spectrum Fair is back with new things to offer. Spectrum launched their first bazaar last September 2015 and has been a kick off point for a number of brands since then. Some of them have already put up their own stores. Part of the excitement of planning the bazaar is discovering new brands and concepts, as well as changing up the themes.
This year, Spectrum Fair will be featuring around 75-80 merchants with a mixture of food, fashion, home, lifestyle and arts always – a spectrum of things as they like to call it. There will also be new performers joining and new brands that have not been featured before. One of them is my cheese buffet, La Petite Fromagerie.
La Petite Fromagerie will be selling raclette boxes for Php300 with marble potatoes, roasted tomatoes, arugula, onions, cornichons and an option to add on The Plaza Ham bits.
Don’t miss out the Spectrum Fair this coming March 18-19 at Whitespace Manila from 10am-9pm!
