Curate is our new fave one-stop lifestyle shop!

Hey, everyone! I’m really excited to share with you this really cool and newly opened lifestyle store my wife and I recently discovered in Makati.

The place is called CURATE.

Curate - Assembly Grounds

Curate is unlike any other lifestyle store you’ve seen or been to before. That’s because, just as their store name suggests, the products that are showcased and offered inside the establishment are all curated; carefully selected items that are guaranteed to be only of great value and quality.

Curate - Assembly Grounds

Not only that! At Curate, I happily learned that the products sold there are all-natural, eco-friendly, beautifully handcrafted and unique. They’ve got over 50 brands inside the shop ranging from bags, crafts, an assortment of accessories, shoes, home items, clothing, wellness and skincare products, as well as interesting novelty items. Curate also serves as the sole physical store of a variety of limited edition food items and products.

Curate - Assembly Grounds

Best of all, for folks who are mindful of the environment and our planet (which should be ALL OF US), many of the items sold at Curate are organic, sustainable, and zero-waste.

Basically, what I’m saying is that Curate has a little bit of everything for everyone.

Here are some of the products you can find at Curate.

Curate is located right inside the newest mall in Makati — Assembly Grounds. It’s a great place to visit because of its accessibility (very near Buendia and Ayala Ave) and ample parking. Plus, the store itself is uncluttered and comfortable to go around which makes for a very great shopping experience for anyone who visits.

Great and affordable products you can find at Curate
