The Stamped Life and Manila FAME Reception

Organized by the Center for International Expositions and Missions (CITEM), Manila FAME is an international trade show to showcase Philippine design and craftsmanship and attended by buyers from all over the world. Last week I attended my first Manila FAME as a buyer. These are a couple of events that led up to the trade show.
