Back in the ’80s, Shoppeville, Greenhills was the place to be. And if you were a teenager like me, you probably went to Tickles a lot to check out the cute stuff, imported gift items and colorful stationery.
This is how Tickles looked back in the day, and it was heaven.
After opening its first store in 1979, Tickles now has nine branches and has remained faithful to its original concept of “happiness all year round.”
Tickles can be found in Glorietta, Greenbelt, Trinoma (on the 1st and 4th levels), Alabang Town Center, Ayala Center Cebu, Marquee Mall, Market Market and Fairview Terraces.
This is how Tickles looks today.
It’s a great source of quirky gift items like these funny signs
Pizza and fries throw pillows
Puffy hamburger pillow
The same group that owns Tickles also launched a’postrophe at Glorietta 4 in 2010.
A’postrophe is a treasure trove of different themes carried across clothing, furniture, fashion, home accessories, houseware, and gifts.
If one were to describe a’postrophe, it would be like entering the “organized clutter” of a seasoned traveler/shopper and her cute finds, like the art mugs and hollow book organizers
We have these at home
Houseware and accessories
A’postrophe can be found in Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 1, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center, Market! Market! and Fairview Terraces.
Finally, When we were kids we were taught to memorize the colors of the rainbow through the acronym ROYGBIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). These are what inspired the group to open its third concept called roy&biv in 2013.
As the name suggests, roy&biv is all about color. Think of it as obsessive-compulsive heaven, with color-coordinated merchandise divided into groups of red, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue, purple and fuchsia.
If colors make you happy, roy&biv is your place to be.
roy&biv branches are located in Glorietta, Alabang Town Center, Fairview Terraces and Trinoma.
Meanwhile, Tickles and roy&biv are slated to open in Cebu, first quarter of 2015.
