Annual Christmas Fair!
Many vendors sold their merchandise on Sunday the 11th. They had homemade breads and rolls, homemade jams and pickles, customs jewely, baby blankets,etc. One booth had lots of things made of wood. I got a few things from a girl whose grandma's lives here in town and this girl actually lives in Thailand and brings lots of stuff every year to sell at this fair. All things made by women in Thailand. This helps women which is something I would endorse. Her company is Sapahn. Take a look at www.sapahn.com. Handmade items are great.
Uma feirinha annual do Natal aqui na nossa cidade. Eles tinhas  pães , roscas, geleias caseiras, pickles, bijouterias, roupas e coisas pra bebes e muitas outros artesanatos. Comprei algumas coisas de uma jovem que vive em Tailandia, a  avó dela vive aqui na cidade. As coisas sao lindas e feitas pelas mulheres da Tailandia. A companhia e Sapahn, de uma olhada na internet.  www.sapahn.com



These dish towels are going for four sisters in laws, mom-in-law, one for daughter and one blue one for myself! :) They are actually sack towels that she attached a panel  in front for color and fun. I also got this cute baby cloth with yellow crochet trim and a burping cloth for our niece who is having a baby next January.
Essas toalhas de prato tem uns apliques bem bonitos, alguns com o tema de cafe outros com bonecos de neve como pode ver. Havia varios temas. Comprei um paninho com bico de crochet e outro paninho pra ombro pra o bebe da sobrinha Ruth que vai nascer nesse Janeiro.
 A close up:
These items were from Sapah. You may check sapahn.com   .  This bag is vintage, with very colorful embroidery and letter handles and cames with 4 antigue Burmese coins adorning it. A bolsa abaixo e feita de material antigo. E um bordado em alto relevo,  alsa de coro e decorada com conchinhas e moedas antigas de Birmânia.
Glass beads jewelry that cames in tiny woven straw containers as you can see below. Contas de vidro e o que usam pra essas bolseiras que vem em caixinhas de palha como pode ver abaixo.
 This is a close up of a small bag, these tiny pleaded work used to be all done by hand but now a days they are done by sewing machine. It's so tiny that I couldn't imagine my eyes ever working on something like this. Essa bolsinha e feita de pano com todas essas preguinhas minunciosas. Sao bem pequenas e não posso imaginar meus olhos fazendo algo assim.
 In another booth I got a Catholic medallion. No I am no longer Catholic but I enjoy these medallions. Hoping this has been a good week for you so far and wish for a great weekend ahead. Tambem comprei umas dessas medalhas Catolicas. Ja não sou Catolica mas apprecio essas medalhas. Desejo uma boa semana a todos voces!

  1. The first report I have seen about a Christmas Fair, I suppose I will not be able to avoid thinking about Christmas much longer. Looks like a good selection of things were available.

    1. The stores here all decorated with Christmas things and ready to sell merchandise related to the holiday. It's incredible how every year they seem to do that earlier and earlier. We have not had Thanksgiving yet.

  2. I love these kind of places. They are soooo much fun. I cannot go with my 3 children, but when my husband is home again, I will sneak out to some local places like these. Thanks for sharing! I always love seeing handmade things.

  3. Aren't these local Christmas craft fairs wonderful?? Every church in town has one here and I try to get to as many as possible. The beautiful handmade crafts and homemade breads, cookies and cakes are simply delightful. Of course, in a small towns like mine, everyone knows everyone and the ladies working the stalls are always quick to tell you who made what---which is always nice when considering buying baked items.

    Eu adoro essas feirinhas, sempre acho alguma coisa bonita e diferente. E gosto tbém do 'clima' da energia boa q emana desses lugares. Meu problema é q muitas vezes eu me esqueço da data e só me lembro uma semana depois :(
