Unique Bulgarian Handiwork Displayed at Traditzia Charity Gallery

If you are looking for a piece that will always remind you of Bulgaria, you could be sure to make your pick at the Traditzia charity gallery at 38 "Vassil Levski" Blvd. In that cozy place, you could spot not only something to suit your furniture and curtains but something to suit your tender heart, too. Who ever felt the joy of helping somebody in need will probably understand the enthusiasts from the British embassy in Sofia who manage Traditzia to aid Bulgaria's disabled children, orphans, single mothers and artisans whose talent might otherwise go unnoticed in the remote villages they live. The beautiful souvenirs displayed at Traditzia are actually handmade by such people and all revenues of the gallery go back to them.

By buying the unique pieces or rather by donating (you could always leave more than the minimum price labeled), you help those Bulgarians buy their supper, pay the electricity bill or learn a skill that will provide for their living in a lifetime.

So, if you decide for the little hump dolls, the current hit of the gallery, your cash is going to the single mothers working at the Rozhdestvo Christovo Social Center in Sofia. You also could look very fashionable while aiding the disabled children from the St. Mina Day Center in Sofia who make wonderful silk scarves. Make sure you don't miss the unique blue ceramic of artisan Svetlozar Pamakov from the town of Isperih. His work is comparatively expensive but worth the last dime as it strongly resembles the technique used in embellishment of Bulgaria's mediaeval palaces.
