i'm actually filipino-irish lol! my great grandma was from south africa. i haven't lived there since young tho but i do live in manila now. the stuff i'm more familiar with are filipino/ chinese antiques.
there is a festival every year but it's not my province.
i was abit more interested in the true collector's pieces though and in general would have liked to talk about the designs that may have caught your eye.
and from my previous thread on wood aversion, do they mostly come in wood? i have seen metal ones put on a stand. i liked those. will snap a pic when i have a chance.
