ALMONEDA:VII Antiques, Vintage and Collectors Fair, 19-23 November

The seventh edition of the ALMONEDA: Antiques, Vintage and Collectors Fair will, once again, be taking place in the Centro de Arte La Recova (next to the TeatroGuimerá) from Wednesday, 19th November to Sunday, 23rd November in Santa Cruz.

Entrance to the fair is free, however a donation is suggested (of €2), which will go to charity.

There will be a collection of non-perishable foodstuffs (tinned food, rice, pasta, etc.) and personal hygine articles (shower gel, shampoo, detergent, fabric softener, etc.) in which you can collaborate, at the tables situated at the entrance of the fair, in aid of the Comedor "La Milagrosa" of the Hermanas de la Caridad (Sisters of Charity) in Calle La Noria. The fair also aims to promote AFATE, the Association of Families of those with Alzheimers and other forms of dementia in Tenerife.

As well as the exhibition and sale of antiques and collectables, there will be opportunities to learn about picture restoration, sculpture, textiles, ceramics and porcelain, as well as furniture.

During the fair there will be various activities, such as musical performances, talks, cultural exhibitions, retro fashion shows, an auction, etc. Up-to-date information on the activities is available (in Spanish) at the ALMONEDAS Collective Blog or their Facebook page.

Doors open on Wednesday, 19th November at 12:00, although at 19:00 there will be a surprise performance, followed by a small toast, to which all are invited.

Wednesday 19th to Saturday 22nd November from 12:00 to 21:00 and Sunday 23rd from 10:00 to 14:00.
