THREE MORE SUNDAYS FOR THE CRAFT FAIR IN LA NUC�A

Filigrana de papel

The weekly Craft Fair that has been held in the Old Town of La Nucía, every Sunday morning since the beginning of February, is coming to the end of its first season: only three more to go. Although they could have done with some more public, the reactions have been very positive and the participants are already planning to continue after the summer with new ideas and more stalls.

Every Sunday morning some ten or twelve stalls are set up in the lovely square in front of the church and the Town Hall, offering a wide choice of good quality hand made goods. And every week some new craftsman or artist joined the group that is taking turns so as to offer as much variety as possible. On the 9th of June there will even be three “new” stalls: one from the painter Antonio, another with jewelry and faces cut from the stones of avocado pears and one offering brooches and little boxes decorated with intricate quilling. Ricardo is coming back with his chess games made of leather (even the pieces!); there will be lamps and rag dolls, enamels and hand painted glass, soap, jewelry and crochet.

In the web page of Amata, the organizing craft association, you can see who is coming these last three weeks (the list is completed as the participants book their places); http://www.amata.es/LaNucPart.html is the direct link to this list and at http://www.amata.es/LaNucFoto.html you can see photographs of previous weeks.

KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU

“Distraction theft” happens everywhere, ATM’s at banks, markets and recently an increase in reports at super markets.

The most recent case involved a Swedish visitor who on landing at Alicante airport decided to shop at Mercadona supermarket before going to his home, as he walked down an aisle he was distracted by a young women who asked him a question – the conversation lasting only a few seconds –

Unfortunately this was enough time for the accomplice to steal holiday money of 800 euros from a buttoned pocket in his “safari” shorts.
By time he realised that this had happened the thieves had long gone.

One of the least expensive and successful ways of preventing this type of theft has for many years now been to wear a “money belt” or similar and even then to carry with you only what is necessary for the shopping trip.

Also due to thieves targeting tourists if you have rented a hire car it is very important that you do not advertise this fact and carefully remove the hire car sticker from the rear of the car for your increased safety.
