For those of you still in search for the perfect gift for Easter,...I might have found something for you. The other day I was taking a walk with my friend when we both stopped to visit an Easter Fair in Bucharest, which is located at Sala Dalles. The fair is open 10.00 till 20.00 until the 23rd of April, so even as a working person you have enough time to go there and pick out some lovely gifts for your dear ones.
Besides the Romanian traditionally hand-painted Easter-eggs, you can find a lot of other hand-made items, such as pottery or blankets, there are even artists displaying their self-made jewelry or paintings and you can even get a painting done for yourself. There are also cosmetic products, most of them created on a natural base, and if you have a sweet tooth, you will be delighted to find a lot of goodies waiting for you. My attention was drawn to a stand where there were sugar-crafted gifts, representing flowers, swans, ladybugs, eggs, rabbits etc. ...surely made by a chef confectioner. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of them,...but you can find them at the back of the hall, on the left.
On the first floor, there was another stand which caught my attention.The merchandise was different and very fresh. I am passionate about design and clever ideas of design which make it into our daily lives, not just those who are meant to be put in a museum and looked at as they don't have any functionality. The products displayed at the Easter fair by tanaaa.ro are really special and functional.
Take for example this fantastic jewelry, which is based on strong magnets. I had already seen the one on the left on someone in Bucharest, and it is amazing. You can have a necklace, two bracelets,...or a thicker bracelet, or a bracelet and a ring or a thick ring,...or many rings or a block to play with or.....ufff...there is actually no limit to this. But be cautious! I have been warned this piece of urban jewelry can become addictive.
If you are eco-conscious, then there is also something there for you. Take for example these paper-watches. Yes,...paper! Of course, the mechanism is not paper, but the rest is really eco-friendly and created by an Italian designer called Giuseppe Casillo.
Furthermore, there are these eco-friendly wallets which you can find, designed to last for years and years in your use, with patterns on them or just plain and you can design them. It is also water-resistant, so you can take it virtually anywhere you'd like to.
Of course, tanaaa.ro has a lot more things to discover...this is my friend who was fascinated by some things they have.
I hope I have woken your interest in this stand and also in the fair and wish you find your perfect gifts.
