Last Saturday was a historical day for local Coca-Cola Memorabilia collectors as they organized the very first Coca-Cola Philippines Collectors Fair at Fishermall.
The event was supported by Coke collectors from all over the world. Mr. Arjay Mendoza, president of Coca-Cola Philippines Collectors Club mentioned exhibitors from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Japan, Turkey, Switzerland, Macau, South Korea and Russia.
Coca-Cola Philippines representatives were also present during the occasion to support our local collectors. The event was a testimony about how a global brand can also have a global community of collectors.
As a Coca-Cola consumer, it was somehow a throwback time for me. I was happy to see some old Coca-Cola products like Fanta and remember how much a liter of Coke costs back then, from an old poster, would you belive it was only P14.00? Yeah.
A wide array of coke bottles were on display and were on sale too. Enjoy viewing some of my snapshots.
I was with my daughter and she was also in awe seeing myriad of Coke items from way back the years she wasn’t even born yet, like these ref magnets.
Actually, she can’t get her eyes off this cute Barbie doll in Coke outfit.
And she wants to take home this “Sari-Sari Store”
I love this bag with complete Coke dinnerware.
Of course we didn’t go home empty-handed, because I bought her my favorite childhood toy, a Coke Yo-Yo.
It was a one day yet a very successful exhibit for our local Coke collectors. We hope we can see them again next year.
