A short time ago the Patches Christmas market was held showcasing local talent in the form of handmade arts and crafts. This was an ideal occasion to hunt around for some presents and for many it was also an opportunity to taste some exquisite delicacies whether savoury or sweet. The amount of people who visited was quite overwhelming but it bodes well for artisanal independent-owned shops as such events enable locals and foreigners alike to discover unique gems, ranging from bags (local bag designer Fransina) and jewellery, to home decor and stationery. Here is what caught my attention.
