WAMP’s Up Now?

I am certain you have heard me mention WAMP in the past. It is one of my secret pleasures to investigate their new offerings once or twice a month.

WAMP is an umbrella organization created by young Hungarian designers to play an active role in international design showcases, thus exposing the talents of many Hungarian designers to the world. It used to be that you needed to wait for the event to be held if you missed one of the twice monthly events. Since February and until May at least, this is no longer the case. WAMP is holding weekly events at Váci utca 1, right near the Hard Rock Café.

Ron and I were out for our walk yesterday, though it was beyond chilly. When we discovered that WAMP was open, it was a well-received opportunity to exercise with a purpose, while regaining the feeling in our feet and hands. The building is fabulous. There is so much more room for artists to display their goods, people to mill around, and lots of room for the less enthused shopper to relax while the militant shopper storms through. 

On another note, if you are here on Sundays starting April 7, the Gozsdu Udvar Market will start operating for the summer. Generally, there are more booths at the beginning of the season with a number of vendors falling off the grid as summer progresses.
