Sunday 20th November 2021 – PRESS RELEASE with Mike Smith
Are you looking for really nice and original presents for the people who matter to you? Then you could do worse than visit the craft fairs that AMATA will be holding in Jávea between December 6th and 8th inclusive. This is a real craft fair run by real craft people who sell only what they make themselves. They can even make something specially for you, if you can’t find what you are looking for!
In a beautiful setting on the sea side promenade some twenty stalls will be set up around an enormous Christmas tree. Every stall is offering something different and all participants are real craft people, who bring their tools along so they can make small changes or personalize a chosen item, and can even accept special orders if you don’t find what you are looking for. Some artisans will be at work in their stalls, so you can see with how much love and patience every item is made.
This fair opens on the Monday 6th December at 11.00am and will remain open until 8.00pm, the same on Tuesday 7th December and Wednesday 8th December, although they will close a bit earlier on the final day. Last minute changes (e.g. in case of bad weather) will be anounced in Facebook and Instagram (Amigos de Amata).
General information about the fairs that Amata organises you can find on the AMATA web site (www.amata.es – also in English), or you can ring 639 979 678 and talk – in English – to Elvira whilst photographs of the last fairs (in 2019!) can be found at here and here.
Come to the fair and see for yourself! And if you have other plans or live too far away, you can have a look at the virtual craft village click here, created by AMATA so you can see the artisans busy in their workshops, buy their work in shops on line or virtual fairs and even follow small tutorials, at any moment and wherever you live!
