Last Sunday me and mom decided to participate in this crafts fair with a stall. We know is a fair we don't earn good money but at least what we sell covers the expenses of gasoline, food and crafts shopping. The place is stunning, for around 5 years we attend this fair (if I'm in Portugal). It's a different day and if you live around don't miss it!
Our colorful stall!Remeber these vintage shelves found in the garbage I made a makeover? Fit nicely with the felt+fabric owls plushes.
I would like to share my favorite artists works of the fair. They were so many! There was also an area for organic and traditional food and a small Flea Market where I bought 2 books about ecology and one documentary DVD about Maya Pyramides.

Hope you like these pieces of art as much as I do, I wish my pictures didn't turn this blurry, I'm sorry for that.
It was a wonderful day, I had a great opportunity to meet more skilled portuguese artists and exchange interesting information with them. Cacela Velha brings harmony and serenity to my life.
Which artist did you like best? Would you buy something from them? Which items?
