Beach fair with a difference in Jávea Puerto

News Spain - June 2013

javea-port-marketEvery year, all along the coast, you'll see rows of little stalls with hand-made jewelry and artistic T-shirts lined up along the front. The jewelry might be made by hand, but usually not by the people selling the stuff. It will come from Third World countries and is bought from specialised importers. Nice as a holiday souvenir, but you can buy the same stuff in any pound store. And now for something a little different.This summer you will find a different sort of stalls set up in Jávea Puerto - stalls with jewelry, turned wood, scarves, carvings, leather, ceramics made by the people of the stall. Amata - the people who launched "Artesanía de Autor" - have been asked to organise a real craft market, and this looks like it is going to succeed. With the blessings of the local shopkeeper's association, who want a little bit of quality for a change.
