The idea supports local designers and jewelery craftspeople in a similar way that the weekend market of the Rambla del Raval does: all artisan products and designs, with no brands or well-known makes on offer. I took these photos early this morning, so it was still a little incomplete and empty but the festival is going on all day and into the night, with live music and a really cool chill out Moritz lounge/bar in the basketball courts on Carrer Aurora.
It's a great way to meet the neighbours in a different setting and support the local designers in such tough times. There were some really cool bags this morning made from old vinyl records, for example that caught my eye, and although I had to go, I can definitely reccommend heading down - if not for just a chilled drink in the Moritz lounge!
Coming to Barcelona this summer? Why not rent an apartment with BCN Rentals instead of just heading for a stuffy hotel room? They have fully equipped apartments with air-con, wi-fi, Satellite TV & DVD, etc. And for some more money saving options while you're here, see these budget tips.
