First weekend of my first trip to Sao Paulo! I was looking for some liveliness and an excuse to mingle in the city. Ended up in Praca Benedito Calixto where there are many elegant vintage wares being sold - china and crystal, vinyl records, other home accessories and gifts, and some booths with things by independent crafters. some of the vintage wares are authentic but pricey - good to look at, and make you wish you are building your own home in sao paulo!
in the middle is the tent for some food stalls, live bands, people dancing and being in joyful company. i don't speak a word of portugese but everyone was accommodating and kind. around the area are alot of restaurants and cafe where you step into for a break. people in the cafes were friends and couple enjoying their weekend. for my context, prace benedito calixto weekend fair is a lovely confidence-boost!
