4 Fun Stores To Check Out At Artifact II

More reasons why you shouldn't miss the pop-up for the modern home


Sometimes, even after scouring all the retail shops and flea markets in your area, you still come home empty-handed and unsuccessful in finding the perfect pieces for your upcoming redecoration project. 

If you've ever been in this situation, maybe it's time to branch out and explore pop-up stores. From July 8 to 10, Ampersand Collective and Alabang Town Center are staging Artifact II: A Pop Up For The Modern Home to showcase local and bespoke finds from different creative hubs in the country. Check out our list of must-visit booths during the event below:

Tinkerknot Handmade Design

Unlike other custom-made furniture stores, Tinkerknot provides decor and trinkets crafted out of 100% locally sourced wood and steel. They take pride in their curated collection and signature items that aren't mass-produced—whether it's the clothes racks made from hardwood and recycled steel pipes or the carved columns—you can be sure that every piece is unique in its own way.

Tweed & Twine

For those who have a soft spot for travel accessories and handmade homeware, Tweed & Twine doesn't disappoint. Using textured fabric, wax or resin, every item is designed with style and purpose in mind before being carefully crafted into functional pieces that can be a part of your daily routine.

Studio Desegnio

Looking for high-quality, quirky furniture? Make sure you drop by the Studio Desegnio booth. Aside from furniture, they also carry custom-made doors, unique sculptures, accent pieces and even offer reupholstery services.


While you're still saving up for a genuine Van Gogh to hang in your humble abode, you can showcase your love for classic art through everyday essentials and make every moment a chance to express your creativity. Take your pick from the works of Gustav Klimt, Claude Monet, and Georges Seurat printed on umbrellas, wall clocks, coasters and more!
