  • The fair covers various audiences. It is for those seeking arts, as anyone looking for antiques and collectable items like who wants to trade currencies. Independent production outfits. There's Alexander with their handmade wooden glasses (excellent) I have been a client. Inside the galleries surrounding the square you can find many objects (decor, clothes, funny cards, frames, fridge magnets fun) and too few places to eat (actually there is not much option). The price of the items are varied, but accessible. Worth checking out!
