Vendor Highlight - Mega Store

From time-to-time, we at From The Earth like to recognize local vendors who partner with us in providing quality goods and services to the public.  This week, we would like to introduce our readers to Mega Store located in Mecca Mall.  Mega Store needs little introduction to those who frequent Mecca Mall, as it is one of the larger and more popular stores in the mall. 

Mega Store specializes in all forms of media; books, DVDs, magazines, video games and much more.  It has state-of-the-art electronics and accessories for Apple fans, as well as for those of us who just want a quality headset or that latest video game at a competitive price.

In addition to a great selection of the most current best-selling books, Mega Store also has a special “Kid’s section” guarded by a ferocious stuffed tiger – no adults allowed!

We are pleased to be able to display some of our olive wood jewelry, magnets and key chains in Mega Store, along with a selection
of some of our picturesque photo cards of unique Jordan scenes.
The next time you are in Mecca Mall, stop by Mega Store where you will be greeted by the friendly and helpful staff who will assist you in finding that latest electronic accessory, best-selling book, or the most recent movie or TV series release.

Souq by the Sea in Aqaba

Are you planning a trip to Aqaba to enjoy the sun and do some shopping?  Then be sure to visit the crafts fair known as Souk by the Sea every Friday in downtown Aqaba beginning 1 April.

This street bazaar has it all!  If shopping is what you want, then stop by to purchase something made locally to remember your visit.  Over 30 local artisans display their work each week.  Everything at Souk by the Sea is handmade by the people of Jordan.  Handicrafts include jewelry, embroidery, mosaics, baskets, soaps, sand-art, and perfumes.

Join From The Earth along with other local crafts artisans and distributors to experience a taste of authentic Jordanian culture.  We are pleased to be able to partner with one of our key suppliers of olive wood, Desert Rose, to display some of our unique handmade cards and jewelry products at the Souk.

If you are interested in entertainment, Souk by the Sea also provides a venue for cultural exchanges with live music, short films, theater, and other performances.

The Souq takes place every Friday next to the Captain's Hotel in downtown Aqaba from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM, with live music performed from 8:00 - 10:00 PM.

We look forward to seeing you there!
