The beloved shopping pop-up Travelling Trunk will be holding its last event for the year, PASKO: The Holiday Collection, at a11 at 2680 FB Harrison at Pasay City, this weekend from November 19 to 20, 2016.

This season’s Travelling Trunk show features an all-Filipino lineup of established and upcoming fashion and home brands, such as the indigenous, intricate fashion by Filip+Inna, dresses by Anika, and pieces by Beatriz Accessories, whose jewel-like clutches were some of Oprah’s favorite things this year.

In between shopping, join in on the snow-globe-making and floral arrangement workshops, dine at Apartment 1B, watch an al fresco movie, or extend the fun by having a staycation at The Henry Hotel (they have special rates that weekend). And while you’re there, just enjoy going around the lovely 2680 compound, which is also home to the Avellana Art Gallery and noted fashion designer Jojie Lloren’s atelier.

Here are some of Real Living’s fun and stylish Travelling Trunk picks:
