Curaçao Market Place
Lensu di Kabes
Lensu di Kabes, which used to be worn everyday by Curaçao ladies are nowadays only worn by folkloric groups during Curaçao's annual Harvest (Séu) Festival. This ancient African tradition is considered a specialized (dying) art form and Cenaida van Dinter is one of the few remaining masters of this art. Purchase a scarf and Cenaida will artfully tie it for you.
Serena Isreal's, famous Chichis®, the sensual, well rounded Caribbean statue, representing the smart, strong, happy and caring elder sister everyone deserves. Two of her larger Chichis® will be part of a Silent Auction, benefitting both a San Francisco and Curaçao Youth Program. There will be a selection of Chichi's available for purchase, in case you too, after meeting her, find yourself wanting to take her home to tell all your secrets to.
