Today the weather was a pleasant contrast to last week’s, thankfully! I couldn’t cope with too many Saturdays like last week. My nerves would be shot!
The morning started with somebody visiting the stall wearing the most gorgeous, blue felted-wool hat. It had two beautiful felted flowers attached to it. It looked stunning. I was tempted to ask her if I could buy it off her! She used to live in Townsville, Australia, and now lives in Phoenix, USA. She bought a tote bag and some pouches to take back with her.
There were quite a few students about. The university year is finished and people were off on well-deserved holidays. A young couple from Greece, bought “Spanish Eyes (Red)”, a Dutch couple, she is doing a PhD in Sydney, which is focusing on sleep with people with Celebral Palsy, they bought “Bonnie & Me!” and a student studying at the University of Tasmania (UTAS), from Maine, USA, studying seaweed (polyculture – seaweed, shellfish and fish, a proposed more environmentally friendly fish farming methodology) bought a couple of stickers. A young lady, from Indonesia, who has finished her Master’s degree, bought two tote bags for two of her friends, who also finished their Masters degrees. The three are going back to Indonesia.
A lady, visiting from San Francisco, USA, bought a “Two to Tango” and “Hoo, Hoo, Hoo Merry Christmas!” tote bag. She said that she does tango dancing and that outside of Argentina, San Francisco has the largest population of tango dancers. It is a very popular dance in San Francisco!
A couple, with his sister visiting from the UK, bought five different small dancing emu prints. They are going to hang in the billiard’s room. Then, a man from Borneo, purchased an A-3 size print of “Poppy Fields” and “Salamanca Saturdays”. He said that he is going to design his house-build around these prints! I don’t think there are too many Pj paintings’ prints in Borneo.
A packet of Christmas cards were bought to be posted to the UK. A framed “Salamanca Saturdays” print will be adorning a wall of Dunromin B&B in Mountain River, Tasmania. A “Salamanca Fresh” tote bag was purchased for a Secret Santa present. A “Salamanca Fresh” print is heading to Townsville, a “Salamanca Saturday” to Brisbane and Adelaide. I think a lot of people are taking advantage of the direct flights from Adelaide to Hobart. A young lady, from Brisbane, bought “Scarlet Robins” and “G-Day” and then returned with her friends, who also bought a “Scarlet Robins” print. A “Duck Crossing” pouch is going to Minnesota, USA.
It was a welcome relief to put my feet up at home and enjoy a cup of tea after a busy, but interesting and good day at Salamanca Market.
The most popular print this weekend was: The Three Amigos
