Salamanca Market Aug 24, 2019
It was a rather mild day with a few scary wind gusts but things thankfully stayed intact. Today, “The Bun”, “Hair Extensions” and “Hair Accessories” debuted, and they did well but not as well as the Sleepy Head series.
“Hair Extensions” and “The Bun”
There were heaps of people dressed in the Kangaroo and Demon colours. They were doing the market before the AFL game at Blundstone Oval, Bellerive.
A couple from Melbourne, to celebrate her birthday, flew to Tasmania for the day, not even spending one night here. She purchased “Devilish Siesta” and “Afternoon Siesta”.
Two girlfriends, one from Cairns, the other from Townsville, both wearing the same plum coloured beanies with a beige pom-pom, bought “Spanish Eyes (Red)”, “Hayride”, “Afternoon Siesta”, “Devilish Siesta” and “Spiky Bunk beds”.
A lady, from Melbourne, having a weekender on her own, bought, and started using, a “Sleepy head” tote bag. A couple from Western Australia, purchased a “Salamanca Fresh” pouch for her to use at university.
I met the sister, from Adelaide, who travelled to Tasmania with her family, to celebrate her sister’s 40th birthday. Her sister is doing psychology/weather thesis, which involves visiting Antarctica.
I met a family, living in a small Western Australia town. She’s originally from Seattle, USA. They bought a wombat and “Double Date III” print.
A group of young people from Hong Kong bought a variety of prints from the Sleepy Head series. Two ladies, visiting from Melbourne, bought a kookaburra print. Another couple from Melbourne bought a “Helping Hands” pouch. She said that she has so many tote bags that it was nice to be able to get something a little different that also can serve as a souvenir.
The most popular prints today were the Sleepy Head series, featuring Wombats, Echidnas and the Tassie Devils.
