We spent a Sunday afternoon at the Feira de Hip in Ipanema.. This Feira (market) has been operational since 1968 and apparently hasn’t missed a Sunday yet. We went straight after Church and then from the Hippy Fraire, we visited the lovely Wanbersie family who invited us to dinner. It ended up being a veeeery long day. It is not so clear from the pictures, but it rained most of the day and we had to purchase some umbrellas.
Many artworks on display. Marike liked this artist’s style
The Favelas in art. Favelas are the “slums” of Rio. The houses are built right on top of each other as they follow the slopes of the mountains.
The Twirling, dancing Ladies. The Ala das Baianas. They form a part of every Samba School’s performance during the Carnival Parade.
Rustic colouring pencils
Come on, smile once more!
Marike chooses the backpack she wants.
Beautiful Coasters made out of little seeds and petals arranged in their plastic coverings
The owner of the store took a pic of the girls to put on his facebook page, where he advertises. I only heard about this later.
Miniature worlds. So fun to see.
There are just sooo many versions of the statue of Christ the Redeemer available to buy. Also Pao de Acucar (Sugarloaf Mountain) momentos, Rio flags and Soccer stuff.
Franci liked these. Guess why?
On the way to the Wanbersies. This is VERY typical of the pavements in Rio de Janeiro. Little black and white tiles packed in beautiful patterns. This one was just off the Ipanema beach.
