There weren’t as many people at the market today, possibly because of the big Agfest event taking place in the north of the state. Agfest draws thousands to its gates.
Regardless of it being down in numbers of people, I had conversations with plenty of lovely people. A young Auntie-to-be bought a “Suspended” print for the upcoming new arrival and parents from Queensland purchased a “What the Devil?!?” print for their son’s bedroom.
A lady chose a “Barn Owls” print. I asked her if it was a gift for someone. She responded that if was a ‘me’ gift, on her ‘me’ time, ‘me’ holiday. Sometimes we just need to treat the ‘me’ in each of us. 🙂
Three sisters, visiting from Perth, WA, on a week’s holiday in Tassie, were enamoured with the Cheer ‘em Up series. Two young ladies from Sydney, NSW, one of whom claimed that her friend had an ‘owl problem’ added a ‘Tu-whit & Tu-whoo’ print to her owl collection.
A grandmother bought a ‘Story time’ print for Lola’s bedroom, her three year old granddaughter. A family from Queensland decided that ‘Helping Hands’ was the print for Grandma. One of the young girls was wearing a Hockey T-shirt. They had come to Tassie via Sydney, where she had played in the National Hockey tournament. She told me that her position is striker.
Pack up time came just as the wind began to pick up. It was good to not have to deal with that!
This week’s most popular print is: Tu-whit & Tu-whoo
A thought to ponder: “Inspiration exists but it has to find you working” Pablo Picasso
Take care and I hope that your upcoming week is great,
