    Formerly the Marikina Shoe Expo, this place was developed in 1972 where the best shoes of Marikina are found. It was closed down in 1997, and made a comeback in the 2000s sporting a new vibe of art and everything hip. This destination is a U-shaped complex with 2-storey shops. The shops usually sell quirky finds such as vinyl records, retro and antique items, paintings, art books, clothes, accessories, comics, and anything related to art. The things you will find here will make you appreciate art even more, thus very popular among artists and vintage item collectors.
