In the pre-holiday season you will do beautiful and unique Christmas shopping at the Long Live Christmas (Niech Żyją Święta) fair. Brands and exhibitors who will come from all over the country, will bring with them unique decorations and adornments produced in small local workshops.
Long Live Christmas is an event in the spirit ‘less waste’, the purpose of which is the promotion of conscious craft, handicraft and fashion. The specially arranged stands will offer – apart from adornments and Christmas decorations – various ideas for Christmas and New Year gifts: natural cosmetics, candles, ceramics and glass, handmade jewelry and accessories, conscious fashion, books and comics, teas, sweets and much much more.
