Souq Albastakiya

I have always read about Albastakiya: which houses XVA gallery and the Basta Art Cafe.. However, given the fact that its literally in the middle of Dubai's hustle n bustle.. and that traffic is unbearable over there during working days.. I never made it...

So today, i decided to check out what the fuss is all about.. They have a new weekend flea market with various vendors from all over the place.. and live entertainment.. the weather is perfect for checking out something outdoors right now.. Here are some pix..

I loved being surrounded by art.. the outdoor flea market, and that authentic feel of everything old..

- to arts n crafts xx
