T’S still Oc­to­ber but it seems Christ­mas is al­ready here. We hear Christ­mas songs blar­ing from the malls’ speak­ers, and see Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions sold in de­part­ment stores or in their glass panes with Santa Claus, snowflakes, Christ­mas balls and bells.

Ber months have al­ways been the sig­nal for the be­gin­ning of the yule­tide sea­son.

One store in par­tic­u­lar is so catchy in the eyes of mall shop­pers at Cen­trio, since in­stead of their usual wooden fur­ni­ture and home decors, they now have var­i­ous Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and items dis­played for its cus­tomers to browse.

Twin Head Fur­ni­ture, a Ka­gay-anon hailed fur­ni­ture man­u­fac­turer and re­tailer of home decors and bou­tique items, show­cased its Christ­mas Col­lec­tion lo­cated at the ground floor of Cen­trio Ayala Mall, Ca­gayan de Oro City.

This is the fifth year the Twin Head Fur­ni­ture has been do­ing the Christ­mas Col­lec­tion in the said mall which spans from Septem­ber to De­cem­ber.

The Christ­mas Col­lec­tion in­cludes var­i­ous items such as Santa Claus fig­ures, Christ­mas trees, or­na­ments and wreaths, star lanterns, Christ­mas themed pil­low­cases and bot­tle open­ers, na­tiv­ity of Je­sus and the pop­u­lar and eye-catch­ing Christ­mas Vil­lage set, among oth­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to the owner, Tess Acut, the idea to start sell­ing Christ­mas decors and items dur­ing the ber months of the year be­gan when she was still col­lect­ing Christ­mas themed items.

“I de­cided to come up with this kind of busi­ness when my friends started to buy my col­lec­tions, pang­pal­i­tun man nila then I made money. This is a good op­por­tu­nity na mag benta na lang,” Acut said.

Price range for the Christ­mas decors de­pends ac­cord­ing to the type, sizes and sets, ac­cord­ing to Acut

Each piece of the Christ­mas Vil­lage will cost around P2,000 to P12,000 for the mov­ing pieces and around P300 to P1,000+ for the non­mov­ing pieces.

Apart from the Christ­mas Vil­lage pieces, an­other fast­selling item in Twin Head Fur­ni­ture’s Christ­mas Col­lec­tion is the na­tiv­ity of Je­sus or the Be­len as we call it in the Philip­pines.

A set of the na­tiv­ity costs around P800 to P120,000 for those made out of porce­lain, and around P800 to P12,500 for the usual set.

Acut said that last year, it was the Santa Claus decor that their cus­tomers al­ways pur­chased, how­ever, this year the na­tiv­ity of Je­sus has been their fast-sell­ing Christ­mas decor.

“It’s be­cause it’s Christ­mas di ba, it’s the birth of our Lord Je­sus Christ. That’s what we nor­mally cel­e­brate for,” Acut said.

She also shared that their sale usu­ally go up dur­ing the ber months due to the Christ­mas Col­lec­tion, com­pared to the months they sell fur­ni­ture and home decors.

“Ang home decors kasi its not fast sell­ing items. Dili kay sya as in lag­ing hi­na­hanap pero pag Christ­mas items, murag ang mga bonus dinhi padu­long. They do buy, mag­palit gyud sila,” Acut said.

This sec­ond week of De­cem­ber, the Twin Head Fur­ni­ture will be hav­ing a 20 to 60 per­cent sale to most of the items in their Christ­mas Col­lec­tion, Acut men­tioned.

“Ac­tu­ally, bisag dili pa ka mag sale, I no­ticed the peo­ple will re­ally spend for Christ­mas gyud. Naa gyud sila’y bud­get, es­pe­cially for the dec­o­ra­tions. Murag na set aside na nga this is for Christ­mas. Ga buy gyud sila,” Acut said.

THE Christ­mas Vil­lage is the most pop­u­lar and eye-catch­ing dec­o­ra­tion in Twin Head Fur­ni­ture's Christ­mas Col­lec­tion.

The Twin Head Fur­ni­ture show­cased its Christ­mas Col­lec­tion, a dis­play of Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and items which are for sale. It will run from Septem­ber un­til De­cem­ber.
