If one of your new year’s resolutions was to focus on self-care and make 2023 your year, here’s a weekend event you won’t wanna miss — the March edition of The Wanderland Event!
This time, in celebration of International Women’s Day and International Happiness Day, the roving pop-up market, which showcases curated crafts and design goods by talented local merchants and artisans from all walks of life, will be situated at NTUC Club @ Singpost Centre near Paya Lebar MRT station on 18 and 19 March 2023.
There will be 27 vendors and plenty of unique, handcrafted treasures to browse — here’s what you can expect!
For instance, you’ll be able to snag beaded pearl keychains and handmade crochets, with the option of DIY-ing your own keychain at ohits.joybox, as well as cat-themed crochet crafts from Manja Mao.
If candles and fragrances are your jam, you can purchase handcrafted artisan candles from vendors like Candles Collective and Candlelicious in scents that will sweep you off your feet.
Crystal girlies, this event’s definitely for you. Regardless of whether you’ve yet to venture into the wondrous world of natural crystals, or are seeking to expand your collection, you can hit up one of the multiple crystal sellers at the event.
Mei.Crystals is your go-to for crystals in all shapes and sizes, ranging from adorable animals to gorgeous globes, as well as jewellery like rings and crystal bracelets.
Aside from the extensive range of crystals and gemstones (including those of the more, uh, phallic variety), Crystally Co. boasts a customisation bar where you can DIY crystal bracelets for yourself, your bestie, or your boo.
One of the activities I was most looking forward to is the aura-chakra scan by Yuniverse Speaks.
Through this 10-minute scan, you’ll be able to gain an understanding of your aura chakra health, namely the current energy flows and types of blockages within your body.
You will also get advice on what you can focus on at the moment to “realign the flow within yourself”, along with an aura/chakra photo and activity/affirmation cards.
Yuniverse Speaks also sells uniquely crafted blends of Magick Oils, Magick Sprays, and Magick Candles — I definitely had my eye on the Money Drawing candle for “amplifying and welcoming opportunities for success and growth”.
Feeling stressed or tense? Go for the Intuitive Singing Bowl healing services by Crystal Hut and experience the calming effects of sound vibrations for yourself!
Unlock new perspectives and gain insights into your life with Saorsa Tarot, which specialises in tarot readings based on your tarot birth cards. Opt for either a Personal Reading (S$28) or Relationship Reading (S$38), and maybe even bring home a tarot-birth-card-based crystal bracelet or two.
Do note that both the tarot reading and aura-chakra scanning services are extremely popular, so we highly recommend reserving a timeslot online (if available) or with the vendors themselves as soon as you reach!
Those who wish to channel their artsy side can grab a chair and DIY their very own keychain at the Paint-A-Bear Workshop.
Alternatively, consider getting jagua tattoos from No-Pain Cool-Stain or Tea & Gasoline. Jagua tattoos can last for up to two weeks, are meticulously drawn onto the body using 100% natural ink, and look very realistic — ideal for those who are thinking about getting a permanent tattoo, but have yet to take the leap.
All things considered, it’s a great space to connect with like-minded individuals and immerse yourself in creative, inspirational, and positive energy.
There’s no better time to kickstart your self-love journey and #supportlocal at The Wanderland Event this weekend!
