The items include leatherwork, glassware, woodwork, textiles, paintings, home-decor items and designer gifts—all made by members of the Sai Jai Thai Foundation. There will also be organic vegetables and rice from Sai Jai Thai village in Sukhothai province.
Among the highlighted items is a textile photo of Their Majesties the King and Queen set in a handicraft frame. It’s a limited edition and priced at 5,000 baht.

The dance is presented by National Artist Pakorn Pornpisut, director of the Performing Arts Office, the Fine Arts Department.
