The month of gifts has officially begun! We have a Christmas tree, we have Christmas lights, we have a Christmas fair, in the Council Square/ Piața Sfatului. We have also a lot of guests. We are all ready to enjoy all that the last days of the year have to offer. Party plans, organizing shopping details and, in particular, choosing the right gifts. We thought of offering you a small guide to finding gifts in Brașov: what stores do we like, what fairs do we have and maybe some alternatives to the classic gifts. Let's begin!
We’ll take you on a walk "in the center", as we say, on the Republicii, the pedestrian street in the old center, full of shops and restaurants. A very special concept store, where you find really unique things, is Pebs. The store was born out of the love for nature and the desire to participate in its conservation, the jewels from here contributing to raising awareness and enhancement of the flora of Romania. The concept is based on the identification of plants and their conservation in resin, as in an amber, on silver and brass jewelry, made by Adela Cremene. Here you have a wide range of designer products, made by local artists and small producers: silver jewelry, textiles, porcelain, 100% natural cosmetics, cyanotypes, leather products, botanical illustrations and of course, the Ierbar Collection. Plus the limited edition 14K gold - Adela Cremene design. Every day, between 9.30 - 20.00, Pebs Concept is waiting for you, on Republicii street, no. 39, Brașov.
In Piata Sfatului you have the "Christmas Fair 2019", with 35 stands where you can find products from traders from Brașov county and Republic of Moldova: chocolate, sweets, sweet cake, dried fruits, canned vegetables, cheese and traditional meat products from the producers from Vama Buzăului and Feldioara, pálincă and túică, wine, but also cooked chestnuts. Local artisans sell globes of glass and felt, as well as other seasonal decorations or hand-made products. Schedule: December 1-31, 2019, daily, from 11am to 10pm.
If you want to stay in touch with the people from Brasov and get out of the classic "tourist trip", we have some hidden events, through the old city. On December 14th we give you your password to a "Little Christmas Fair, with big hearts, spiced with tea and goodies". Go to the house in Piata Sfatului at no. 21-22 (enter into the yard and on the left). We have unique handmade products, painted t-shirts, jewelry, accessories, greeting cards, painted calendars, the cutest Christmas table decorations, wreaths, candles. Bonus: you can taste and buy homemade sweets, with 100% fresh ingredients of the highest quality.
If you are tired from all that walk, chill and stay in your room and ... buy directly from the internet. We have a handmade gift manufacturer from Brașov that you will love. Romanian Fairy Tales ® by Nicoleta Toma started because she wanted to perfect itself in other crafts besides sewing. Fascinated by the way in which the universal symbols have been taken over in our popular ornament, they have been adapted differently from one area to another, enriched with various influences and blended so beautifully in our pure Romanian style, she can bring these symbols back into our lives. On the site you can find bookmarks, clothes and shoes, baskets and decorative items.
