a curated pop-up shop that brings together hearts and brands
RE-STORE @ Circuit Lane
12 amazing homegrown brands generously donated quality locally-produced items such as Heima, Stoneriver and Piopio. On our line-up of NGOs are One Million Lights PH, Save Philippine Seas, CARA Welfare, MovEd and Cropital.
Of course, we couldn't have done it without our event partners Circuit Makati, Illumina Digital Printing and Brand Connect who share our knack for making out of the box ideas come alive. And with that, we feel extra pumped to have Sassy MNL, The Humble Bee Society, DiscoverMNL, Neighborhood.ph and WheninManila.com to help us spread the word about the pop-up. ♡
Rounding up the numbers
We’re so happy to share that we collected 300% of our target donations for the initiative. Through the one-day pop-up shop, we monetized 15% of the donations. We're done crunching the numbers and it’s official:
drum roll please…
We raised almost ₱ 25,000 for 5 different causes! Subtracting the expenses we incurred, we netted ₱ 12,667.25.
"Wait… expenses are 54% of sales!? That’s pretty high!
Oh, we totally agree with you! But hear us out, 45% of our expenses are one-offs, meaning it won’t be incurred again. Moving forward, expenses should normalize to around 25% of total sales.
Now, let’s slice the pie.
SALES PER MERCHANT
Onto better, bigger things
After testing the waters last April, not only do we feel more empowered and inspired but we also have more clarity & focus in the direction that we want to steer this initiative towards. Instead of just dreaming up plans in our heads, we’ve actually done concrete steps in taking it to the next level.
Catch us at Eden & June's creative flea on June 3 and 4!
Finders Keepers at The Tent
We've got homegrown brands on board + a curated selection of local stationery and indie magazines, home goods and summer outfits -- a perfect fit in the Finders Keepers scene. We're so thrilled to join other local brands they have lined up for the fair!
