You only have until December to enjoy the Rockwell branch!

The opening of Common Room PH in August 1 last year had arts-and-crafts enthusiasts flocking to the store, which was full the whole day, even if it was raining. Common Room PH, the brainchild of sisters Roma and Maan Agsalud (the duo behind PopJunkLove), recently opened a branch in Rockwell Power Plant Mall in Makati City—making the artsy picks and delightful finds more accessible to those who live in the southern part of the metro.

If you haven't gone to the Rockwell branch yet, here are 10 things that will make you drop everything and head to the store stat:

The size of the store

Common Room PH's Rockwell branch is almost twice as big as the store's Katipunan branch. This only means there are more shelf space for more makers and crafters to display and sell their creative outputs.

The scents

And we're not just talking about fruity and floral scents here. Simoy ng Haraya's colognes and perfumes boast Filipino emotions and qualities like kilig, lambing, and sulyap. Try them and see how they make you feel. Simoy ng Hiraya also offers aromatherapy oils, so you can fill your home with the brand's comforting scents.

This shelf full of plushies

Havin' a bad day? Hug one of these plushies and pillows by PopJunkLove, and you'll instantly feel better. They're great gifts for your friends, too.

Illustrated kraft tape

And we're not talking about little pieces of kraft tape. It's an entire roll that doodle artist Ella Lama illustrated with love! DIY crafts won't certainly be boring if you have a never-ending roll of good vibes.

These plants and their unusual vessels

Think outside terracotta pots when it comes to plants and succulents. These greens from The Green House Project PH prove that you can grow plants anywhere—in cups and mugs, in clear vases, and even on a Troll's head! These plants make for great decor on your coffee table or on your night table, too.

Ink Scribbler's Scribble and Color pad

This consists of 30 cards that you can color and give to friends and loved ones. You can use any medium to color them—colored pencils, crayons, or even watercolor! To learn more about Ink Scribbler, click here.

These cute button pins

Who won't go "awwww" when you see these button pins by Ar+syology? Pin these adorable goodies on your shirt or fabric tote bags and you just might make someone's day a bit brighter.

Tweed & Twine's soap

Aside from hand-marbled notebooks and fabric phone and pencil cases, Tweed & Twine now makes handmade soaps. Conjure up a seaside vibe with the Beach Bum soap, or treat your skin to the light and refresing Lemon & Poppy soap. Don't miss the Turmeric & Honey soap—once you sniff its sweet scent, you'll find it hard to stop!

The lovely Trink necklaces

These Trink necklaces by Kartwheel make great gifts for your mom on her special day. Wear them, too, to add a bit of edge to your personal style.

These cool rubber stamps

It's easy to love these meticulously carved rubber stamps by Tish Hautea of SQooiD. These stamps carry a variety of designs—from animals and skulls to short and sweet messages—so you'll surely find one that suits you. Happy stamping!

Common Room PH is located at 2/L Rockwell Power Plant Mall, Makati City. Follow them on Instagram @commonroomph. For more details and updates, you can also check out their Facebook page.
