Del 9 al 10 de junio tuvo lugar por primera vez en Valencia The Pop Up Market. En su blog se presenta como un mercado en el que tanto nuevos como consolidados diseñadores presentan sus creaciones, al tiempo que se celebran actuaciones y talleres. Yo lo visité el sábado por la mañana y conocí a unas artistas muy interesantes.
From 9 to 10 June took place for the first time in Valencia The Pop Up Market. On its blog it says it’s a market where new and established designers present their creations, and at the same time performances and workshops are celebrated. I visited it on Saturday morning and met some very interesting artists.
My first encounter was with the designer of bbco, a Valencian firm of ecological products for babies: cotton dresses, bibs, diaper cakes, foulard baby carriers… I liked very much the fabrics and the small details adorning her handmade creations.
Then I met AamapolaA, a crafter from Madrid who makes complements with all kinds of materials: crochet, fabric, beads… The light was not very good, they are much nicer than it seems in the photos. I loved her bracelts with crochet bows adn pearls.
Interiors Originals was a great discovery. Carmina is one of those persons who transmit energy and optimism and so are her works in knit and crochet with bright and happy colors.
I’m excited about Jabonani. This Valencian woman makes wonderful soaps. And her cupcake-soaps are incredible; I took home two of them.
I was looking forward meeting Irene, the artist who makes the Minimís. They are so nice! It had seen them on her website, but live they are beautiful, with all their perfect details. I loved Edward Scissorhands, but finally I bought the Little Prince for my daughter, who took a fancy to it.
I finish with Altamar Handmade, which are Altea and Marta, two fantastic Valencian designers who make real wonders with all kinds of materials: fabric, felt, crochet… Their marionettes are beautiful, well, and their hairpins, cases for agendas and for mobile phones, purses, pendants… We took an agenda.
And these was our shopping. Jabonani’s pink cupcake is on my printer because it’s so nice and smells so good that I thought I would really enjoy it in my workplace. And my daughter has kept everything else.
