Feria word of the Day: MERCERIA

Merceria in Cadiz

Merceria: Haberdasher's shop, Notion's store 

A Notions store: does not carry fabric, but has all other small objects that one may need for sewing. For example: thread, trimmings, buttons, zippers.  During the different times of the year they change their merchandise. In winter they carry wool, during spring, you can find everything you need for the Penitent, like  cords with brotherhood colors, and flowers, for feria goers.  It is a great place for crafters, some even have sewing, knitting and quilting lessons.
