    Old Skopje bazaar macedonia skopje

    On the left side of the river Vardar , in the ancient part of Skopje is the old Skopje bazaar. Up to the present time the bazaar has experienced several changes in respect of the appearance and the organization, but it has still kept the spirit of the past. In the small innumerable handicraft shops, the Skopje’s handicraftsmen can still be seen, tailors, cobbler, quilt makers, shoe makers, tinsmiths etc. The old market place is still alive and full with a vivid atmosphere which radiates from the small shops, coffee and tea rooms which are always full with tourists which are delighted from the appearance and the life of this part of the city.

    Macedonian filigree and folk art

    There are shops both in the main city shopping center and the carsija.

    What to buy: Macedonian filigree is lovely -- whether the pieces are small or grand, old or new
    .
    The two central filgree pendants were purchased in the carsija. The pins on the right and left at the gallery in the main shopping center. They are both "old" -- the right one is not filigree, but a button from a Macedonian wedding costume. Be sure to click on the picture for better detail.
    .
    The embroidered cloth was a present from our Macedonian "family".
