Sant Jordi's Day. Dia de Sant Jordi4/28/2010
We had a great Sant Jordi's day and thanks to everyone who popped by to see us! Our stall was full of button and felt brooches, rings and hair bands all in the form of roses. On Saint Jordi's day in Catalunya, men typically buy women a rose and women buy men a book, so the streets are filled with stalls selling roses, books and rose themed handcrafts.
