TECHNIMA exhibition in Athens (13.01.-17.01.2011)


As most of u already know last week I was in Athens, with a reason. My boyfriend had an exhibition which was held in the Metropolitan EXPO center near the airport. It was opened from 10am until 8pm and it lasted 5 days. TECHNIMA event is the leading exhibition of artistic handicraft and limited production objects, and it represents the largest folk art and tourist item associations in Greece. U could find there typical souvenirs that are available in each souvenir shop- cups, glasses, ashtrays, miniatures, statues and sculptures, small things with Greek emblem, icons, paintings, ceramics; some clothes, bags and shoes; leather items, knitwear; well known Mediterranean cosmetics from the olives, spices... What I preferred the most was beautiful jewelry, very unique pieces... Unfortunately taking the pics wasn't permitted, nor the individual shopping- only wholesale (mostly the whole story was dedicated to the retailer shops)...
Luckily I took some photos of our stand!:) My boyfriend works with the icons (family business), but I will tell more in the other post since we're going tomorrow to Crete for the same reason- another exhibition...
STAY TUNED AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!
