The Club Elsa bazaar starts today at the Congress Hall at the Pueblo Español.

The annual Club Elsa bazaar gets bigger and better each year, and it now lasts for four days. The fair opens today and continues until Friday evening, at the Sala Magna, part of the Congress Hall at the entrance to the Pueblo Español in Son Armadams. It will be open from 10am to 6pm. On Friday, there will be an auction from 12 noon until 3pm, with a personal appearance by well-known local astrologer Casandra. There will be 20 stalls, and in addition to bargains in clothing, books, bric a brac and furniture, there will be footwear, handbags, toys and costume jewellery. Bargain hunting can be tiring work, so there will be a cafeteria and buffet service to restore flagging energy. The stalls will be run by 160 members of Club Elsa, plus an army of volunteers. Prices range from 200 to 3'000 pesetas and this year the organisers hope to beat last year's figure of 8.2 million pesetas. The money will be spent on Club Elsa's charitable work, which includes scholarships for children with handicaps, aid to non-government organisations which work in Bolivia and Peru, and children from the Saharan refugee camps. The Club also helps out in individual cases by paying back rent or outstanding electricity bills.
