The store is tiny. It catches the eye because it is so different from almost all other stores in Sofia. In the Camden neighbourhood of London, in certain parts of New York City, Berlin or Paris, there are lots of stores with hand-crafted jewelry or decoration matching this alternative style, but not here.

Zhenia, Asen and Angel are the names of the three people behind the Anum store for hand made jewelry, who offer the cutest decoration items for Christmas trees, other decorational objects, cute little pictures, bracelets, earrings and mugs. The three of them make everything themselves.

Most items they offer would make nice Christmas or Hanukkah presents for people who already have everything else, and who do have an eye for interesting art at the same time. Also, almost every little item they sell here is unique, meaning there is no danger anyone will receive the same present twice.

It feels good to find a shop like this one in Sofia. Angel, one of the owners, was just painting a new Christmas tree ball when our reporter walked in and started taking pictures of absolutely everything he found.

The people behind Anum have been doing this for ten years, Angel says. At first, they had a different location.

The Anum shop for hand-made jewelry is located at Ul. Asen Zlatarov 6, in the Doktorska Gradina quarter of Sofia.
