craft market

The Christmas Craft Market opened this week in Plaza Nueva and I took a stroll through this afternoon. There was good social distancing with cordoned off areas for people to wait and plenty of hand sanitiser available. I noticed quite a few new artists this time, as well as several familiar ones. Last year I was sent on a mission by my Canadian friend Pam to find a replacement for a hand-painted silk scarf she’d bought here that had gone missing, and so I stopped by Entresedas to say hello. I saw that they are now making silk masks and they were so gorgeous I sent a photo to Pam, who asked me to send her a couple and to get one for myself (her treat) while I was at it. So I’ll probably do that last week. Yay! My first “dress mask”.

If you’re in Sevilla, the market is open until January 5th. It’s a great way to support local artisans and also find some lovely unique Christmas presents.
