Being an entrepreneur is not easy. We all have something to say but most people don't know how much money, time, and energy it takes to have a business.
There will always be people who will doubt you or won't understand your vision until it blows up and even then, what you'll get is envy or jealousy despite working yourself into the ground while being surrounded by negativity and lack of support.
Yet again, we understand that turning a vision into reality isn't easy. Self-doubt whether you're wasting your time or not will appear. The stress, amount of work, and emotional toll of owning a business can also be daunting.
For us, it has always been our dream to have our very own flagship store. So, despite the pandemic issues and slower sale, we're not stopping to make it happen.
After fifteen months since our launch, it was made possible from the never-ending support and love from our community and customers.

We're a firm believer in the "Think Big. Start Small." mantra. The store itself isn't big (6 sqm²) literally, but we thought that it was great enough to display our small merchandise and gather amazing people together.
The location choice was in the province of Pampanga. It's near around courier companies like LBC, DHL, J&T, and Lazada Drop Off location to make sure that we can follow up all the online orders as fast as we can and has service options in case we'll need an alternative. It's also near one of the biggest schools in the province, Angeles University Foundation.
📍 533 MacArthur Highway Corner D Fajardo St, Angeles City Pampanga (Beside of AUF Sports and Cultural Center).
Starting on August 1, we'll slowly renovate our humble store with a scheduled trial run. We will announce the store hours and days via Facebook so make sure you're connected. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
