  • Isabellas by San Pedro Shoes - Made in Manila

    So excited for today. First day. New job. Ready to embark on a new chapter. 

    Looks like rain. Who cares. Love my shoes. It is ready to take on that next step.

    My uni friend Barbara launched San Pedro Shoes in October 2018. "San Pedro of Manila is a handcrafted shoe collection made by the sapateros in Manila. They were meticulous in making every shoe with eco-friendly man-made leather and black matted rubber outsole for extra grip. Every pair comes in an eco-friendly re-usable pouch bag. I know we cannot please everybody but we want the ones who own San Pedro Shoes to be happy with their purchase."

    Her superfly comfy shoe line are made for moms and daughters, sisters, besties. Made to match each other; or twinning as we say it today. My favorite is the black and white Isabella shoes which remind me of wing tip loafers. You can find this on my site www.filipinotown.ca. Buy.

  • Lumago Upcycled Fairly Traded Accessories at the REUZ Market in New Westminster April 6th

    I'm excited I signed up with REUZ Market www.reuz.ca to sell Lumago Design's upcycled, fairly traded accessories. It's a perfect match. REUZ is committed to providing a market for sustainable shopping. Where like-minded people who have an interest in upcycling, re-purposing and re-use come together.

    In faraway Dumaguete City, in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines, UK-born Becky Stanbridge and a group of women living close to the garbage dumpsite create beautiful, fashion forward jewelry. All from used, recycled and upcycled materials. #filipinotownlovesthis
