Find the Fifty

Time has flown by so fast!  The business has been so blessed!  We are so happy to share with you that we are turning 50 this year!

From a small little gift shop on Tomas Morato, Quezon City, we now have 21 stores and counting!  The late Papemelroti's proprietress, Socorro Alejandro used to say that she never planned for the business to be as successful as it is now.  Indeed God has miraculously transformed the outlet for her hobbies into a thriving family corporation.

Presenting our 50th Anniversary Logo!

This year is certainly not like the rest!  Our 50th birthday is coming soon!

To be able to look back in an instant, to what this year was for us, we thought we would have a happy, fun-filled image!

The logo was designed by our resident master artist, Robert Alejandro.

Let's take a look!

Drum roll please....

What do a cat, owl, deer and a couple of birds have in common?  They're all on Papemelroti's 50th Anniversary logo!

The animals suddenly come out of a great big tree and they seem to be wide eyed with excitement!  

Papemelroti customers represent a varied mix of tastes and styles belonging to a distinguished brand of shopper.

The catty shopper likes the cutest, most whimsical products. The wise shopper is represented by the owl.  This type of shopper doesn't settle for less.  He or she is usually familiar with other shops and with the price of similar items.

The deer is the shopper who loves to find hidden treasures in our shops.  They decide fast and like to stay and browse before deciding which products are the best to buy!

They all come together at Papemelroti to shop or sometimes just to de-stress.

The great big tree at the center is the business.  Since it has grown steadily through the years, it provides livelihood to an ever increasing workforce of over a hundred.

It's obviously been a fruitful and exceedingly blessed business!  

We can only give thanks to God and to all of you for the support better in the years to come!

Thanksgiving Photo Album

Meet some of the people behind your favorite Papemelroti products!  They came out to last January 12th in full costume attire!

Traditionally, we have our company thanksgiving party on the 12th day of January as this is the late founder Socorro Alejandro's birthday.

Each branch of the company had their own squad theme, competing for the best squad costume award as well as a mannequin challenge clip!

Our favorite costumes were - our factory personnel's theme of Rice Farmers (pictured above)!  They look like the real deal don't they?

We couldn't resist showing you the live Petunia Dolls!  They are as cute as can be!  Alongside the real live "dolls", are our resident "pirates", company owner and President Benny Alejandro, Director Robert Alejandro, and Managing Director Patricia Paterno.

For reference, these are the Petunia Dolls found in our shops.

Can you guess what this group was dressing up as?


We are truly grateful for each individual working with us, striving to bring to you the best in Filipino artistry and design!
