I went last year and I was hoping to see good quality work of art, when there was all these chachkahs and expensive pieces of work that did not appeal to me.

Some beautiful pieces. Better, several artists whose work I'd seen in Etsy were offering significant discounts at the expo.


It was very small, not a great quality. The map does not show the reality. Only one of the streets has a max of 15-30 artists.
