SHOPPING

With the development of the sugar industry and its economic  boom during the 1950s, Bacolod's prominent families have acquired fine antique collections. Some are on sale in the city's antique shops, others can be viewed in ancestral homes or private collections. Good buys include shellcraft, ceramic ware and woodcraft. It's weaving centers produce "hablon", a locally-developed shimmery fabric which was the rave during the 1960s. Bacolod delicacies like piaya, barquillos, squid flakes, guaple pie and bañadas cookies are popular take-home gifts.
