Description

Have you ever been fascinated by the lovely small Christmas figures created by hand artisans and found in markets in Europe in December? We know you have. Then you are in for a real treat at the Marseille Figures’ Market, arguably the most notorious place to be when it comes to creativity, style and diversity of Christmas figures. The making of “santons” is a thriving craft industry for many of the best artists around France, who join forces and bring their various products to the public. Keeping a tradition of more than two hundred years alive, this special fair will drag you back in time and, when you return to the present, you'll probably have a few santons in your bag.
