Network Spirit of Christmas Fair
Hotel Garbe, Armação de Pêra
December 1st 11am – 5pm
If you’re already thinking about what to buy your nearest and dearest for Christmas then make a note in your diary to be at the Network ‘Spirit of Christmas’ Fair on December 1st - it is fast becoming the Christmas event in the Algarve.
The Fair is already fully booked and with even more stallholders than last year – more than 55 - you’ll have lots of craft, gift, food, home and fashion ideas to choose from.
And there’s an extra dimension to the Fair this year with a special ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.
If granny’s old teapot is gathering dust on a shelf and you’d like to know what it is worth then bring it along to the Garbe on the day of the Christmas Fair. Antiques expert Janice Paull will be happy to give advice on any old items you have you are not sure about (that doesn’t include the wife!) ...and she’ll also be happy to give hints and tips on how you can go about selling them.
Janice is a specialist in English 19th Ceramics, has been a dealer for over forty years. She is also a member of the British Antique Dealers Association, the Antique Council USA and the International Confederation of Art dealers.
Janice is donating her time and will be at the Fair all day from 11am – 5pm. In return she will be asking for donations towards the work of Network, the Fair organisers, the non-profit making organisation for working women in the Algarve. We suggest a donation of 2 euros per item and ask that you do not bring large items of furniture to the Fair.Please call in advance if you need further information.
Adding to the usual fun of the Christmas Fair will be members of Silves Keep Fit for Charity group who will be CAROL SINGING at 11.30 and 3pm, and the Western Ladies Lunch Club are holding a BRING AND BUY CAKE SALE, again in aid of their chosen charity. If you would like to help out you can take donations of cakes and candy with you on the day.
Network is also holding a RAFFLE AND TOMBOLA in aid of their charity of the year, ACCA, which supports children’s charities and deprived children throughout the Algarve. Great prizes already include a weekend break at the Garbe, luxury Christmas Hamper and much more.
Santa will also be taking time off from his busy Festive schedule to be at the Network Spirit of Christmas Fair throughout the day, encouraging passing trade to visit and to guide visitors around the attractions.
Remember, December 1st is the public holiday so gather some family and friends and make a day of it.
