Tricontinental Handicraft Fair


Puerto de la Cruz was recently host to the first Tri Continental Handicraft Fair, (Primera Feria Tricontinental de Artesanía) in which two hundred artesans from South America, Mexico, Africa, Portugal, mainland Spain and Canary Islands displayed their works from October 27th to November 1, 2010.  The event was held down at the harbour wall, near Plaza del Charco and included live music in the evenings, as well as stalls of food and drink, some of which I showed in a previous entry here after I discovered the stall of special baked goods and gofio made in the town of Vilaflor, Tenerife.

This was well worth a visit and I'll look forward to the next one.  There were many displays of handmade orginal jewellery,  much of it quite inexpensive.  Here are some photos I took while there.


I've made a slideshow of more photos taken of the displays at the handicraft fair.
If you wish to see it,

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope to see you again soon, until then...
hasta la vista!

Omigoodness, how absolutely gorgeous! I would love one of those straw handbags, and some of the baskets. Oh, heck, I would love to live where you live...!

It's cold, wet, damp, foggy, soggy here on the we(s)t coast -- a typical fall day. Fireplace weather. *sigh* :-)

Fabulous, colourful photos - really warms up the computer screen.
Our nearest neighbour here on La Palma makes traditional embroidery and sells them in her artesenia shop.
It is such a labour of love!

In my next life I hope to come back small enough to fit in your shirt pocket.
Until then, I will continue to live life vicariously, through you and your camera lens.
