Herceg Novi – Original souvenirs, the only ones of that kind on the Montenegrin coast, which are made by the family Vujovic from Baosici, provoke great attention of visitors on numerous fairs.
Thanks to the Bureau for employment, which gave them 6.000 euros, a year and a half ago Vujovic family started working. Mostly those are coastal landscapes made of clay, but they also make mountain ones.
Spouses Vesna and Miodrag have a great help from their daughter Jovana, who has finished the secondary music school, so her ideas mean a lot to them.
While Jovana is showing numerous souvenirs – the island Mamula on the entrance in Boka bay, Herceg Novi gardens, and entire street in the Old town, the island Gospa od Skrpjela, Sahat kula, and the doors of the church of St. Archangel Michael, her mother Vesna speaks about the process of production.
– First we make them from clay, without a last, so every piece is unique, the clay dries naturally, then it is died, and then bakes on the temperature of 1040 Cº – she explains. She says that they are looking for the space in the town where they could exit those unique souvenirs.
So far they have presented and sold them in a souvenir shop of the hotel “Delfin”, and on the exhibitions of flowers ad handmade things, and they are planning a presentation on the tourism fair in Budva.
They will offer souvenirs to “Splendid”, as well as to all other hotels. Miodrag thinks that their time is to come. They are members of the Association of the artistic craftsmen “Koblens” and they are expecting help from them in providing the packing for the souvenirs.
– Until now no one from the suppliers of the cardboard packing, which we visited, did not help us, because it is not payable for them to produce small amounts of cardboards. The package is a small thing, but it is also a condition for us to go on the market with the souvenirs in a right manner – said Miodrag.
MONTENEGRIN SOUVENIRS WITH ETIQUETTE FROM CHINA
Considering the fact that the town does not have its souvenir, says Miodrag, they have addressed to the Tourist organization of Herceg Novi, which would benefit from their products, mainly in the presentation of the town.
– However, they still haven’t called us – he added and reminded that for now they have a CD with their works, and that they are planning to make a catalogue. On Herceg Novi Riviera, as well as on other places in the coast, various decorations are being sold, among them, those from China.
