Crazy Colours at Las Dalias Hippy Market

Last time on the blog, I was talking about the awesome perks of working for a travel website, the big one being that I occasionally get to go on little jaunts abroad to spec out destinations, take photos and get new ideas for content. Last week I was in Ibiza and Majorca – two islands that I would never necessarily visit by choice, but that I found held their own charms even for me.

Sunsets, beaches and lovely island scenery are basically the standard in the Balearic Islands, but one of Ibiza’s must-visit events is the Las Dalias Hippy Market, held every Saturday in San Carlos. Independent jewellers, artists and designers gather here to sell their beautiful and quirky creations, and I definitely wasn’t prepared for the size of quality of this beautiful market. The thing I came away with most of was photos; the colours of the stalls and the imagination involved were just incredible.

There were so many things to choose from, and I made 3 purchases only after browsing the entire market and agonising over what items to pick. In the end I chose a gold plated ring decorated with gemstones, a canvas print of a hippy girl playing guitar, and a beautiful stained glass bottle. I’m a sucker for pointless pretty things…
