The Christmas Season is definitely up in the air! Have you finished putting up your Christmas decors yet?
We were in search for a few more decors when we stumbled upon Christmas Factory along A.H. Lacson (corner F. Jhocson) in Sampaloc, Manila. We were on the other side of the street when we saw this colourful and hard-to-miss facade. Seemingly Santa’s home with all the Santas on display, we decided to make a U-turn to visit it.
If there’s a haven for Santa Claus, this must definitely be it! There was a Santa in every nook and corner!
Just look at these shelves! Santa Claus in all poses and sizes adorned the 4-tier shelves.
A closer look at the displays.
They also have these moving displays with lights.
And some nativity scenes.
And Christmas pillowcases and tree covers.
Santas apparently, also fall from the sky with their parachutes. 🙂
Going further inside, this scene greeted us. It looks like something plucked out of a movie!
Here’s a closer look at the Santas and the sleigh.
Santa can be in the kitchen too! Look at these pantry worthy Santas!
While we were there, owner Jo Santos, was there to assist her customers. Overwhelmed by all the Santas, I forgot to take her photo so I got this image from their Facebook page. We found out that she makes all the Santa designs herself! Wow! Talk about hands on! After her stint with a bakery and a school bus service, she finally went back to what she loved doing most, crafting decors. Her creations not only cater to the Filipino audience but have also reached far and wide as they also export it to other countries. While their store may be open for only 3 short months, September to December, they are still busy the whole year round creating designs and making decors for export.
Their Santas are mostly made from fiberglass material, making them more durable and longer lasting. Here are more of Jo’s creations.
If you’re looking for more Jolly old St. Nick to adorn your homes, a trip to the Christmas Factory is a must. Their designs are fresh and new and the quality is truly commended, with the owner herself supervising the quality control. Their store display arrangements are also well thought of and not done haphazardly, making you want to copy the arrangements into your own home. Oh yes, we were able to bring home some Santa decors and I can’t wait to set it up! 🙂
