The Crafty Corner of DUBAI is in Zabeel Park!

I left for Dubai with very low expectations about creativity. But I happily find out that there is a little crafty market every Friday morning on Zabeel Park, the Ripe Food & Craft Market from 9 am to 2 pm, thank to my friends that live in Dubai for already 7 years.

And said to be the last Crafty Market of the season, as long as Dubai is getting warm and warmer!

Since it was already almost 40 degrees, there were not a lot of stands – like it happens in the flea markets of Zurich in the middle of the winter when it is freeze cold!

But I really enjoyed. I loved especially the stand of our friend’s friend who makes little cards with a special Japanese Origami-like technics.

And 2BIRDS stand with middle-east inspired items produced by two Aussie birds who live in Dubai. The fluo-neon colors are really a trend everywhere now!

Do you remember my necklaces of last summer? I should give it a try and make some new ones for the market of June…2015-05-01 12.52.42 2015-05-01 11.56.11

I fell in love with this Oriental hanger of necklaces. Don’t you think it is magic with the sun-rays that come in-between? Does anyone know where could I find one of them?

My opinion of Dubai and the middle east went definitively up. It is a sunny place full of contradictions and mystery. Very lively. But you must go a bit around to discover that the nature is amazing and even more spectacular than the city itself.

I’ll tell you more next time about our on and off road trip in Oman!

Happy week

Ale
