A really fun christmas Party was held, November 11th by Fiona and a group of artisans and vendors of all things Christmas. The nice thing about this fair is that the ‘sellers’ were mostly friends of Fiona, and also many were friends of the clients. This made for a very congenial atmosphere all during the day. As well the day gave Fiona a chance to show off her wonderful line of garmets for the fall and winter.
Hans, Fionas husband was at a small table just outside the door offering up delicious hot swedish mulled wine to everyone free of charge.It was delicious! Donations were made for the Bombeiros.

There was a group of 8 artisans from Caldas de Monchique selling items they normally only have in their shop ART@SPA including gorgeous glass beaded necklaces, hand blown fish, beautiful fine Ceramics, hand painted gift cards etc. You can also visit them in their unique shop in Caldas de Monchique, open February to end of November.

The fair was a great success, and we can look forward to many more in the coming years.
