It rained off and on, all day long. At the end, I didn’t bother putting the pouches and bags out. They would be hanging up only for a few minutes before I had to bring them back in under cover. The novelty of this wore thin.
My first customer of the day was a couple from Gladstone, Queensland https://www.aussietowns.com.au/town/gladstone-qld They purchased an A-3 size of “Outback Glamping”.
A lady from Port Macquarie, NSW, bought a “Salamanca Saturdays’ tote bag and said that it will be a nice souvenir of Tasmania. https://www.planetware.com/australia/top-rated-attractions-things-to-do-in-port-macquarie-australia-aus-1-94.htm A young couple, also from Port Macquarie, purchased a “Maggie & Maggie” print for their father who has a family of magpies that have nested in his yard, and he feeds them daily. It started with him noticing a magpie struggling because it had some string wrapped around its leg. He caught it with a net, removed the string and then released it. It has thanked him by sticking around and befriending his rescuer. They also purchased a “Dinner for Five???” print.
A couple from Townsville purchased “The Supremes” and “Hanging Out” prints. Another couple bought a “Hanging Out” print for their four-month-old niece that lives in a bush setting outside of Melbourne. Her bedroom has an Australian native animals’ theme.
A couple from Canberra, looking for a house in Tasmania because they plan on moving here, purchased a “Maggie” print.
An online primary school teacher from Maitland, NSW purchased a “Salamanca Saturdays” and a “Meet Me at the Gate” print.
A small group of young university exchange students from Norway, who are doing one semester of studies at the University of Tasmania, stopped by and bought some greeting cards and an A-5 sized print of “Salamanca Saturdays”.
When I got home, I hung up the sides from the gazebo, the awning, the tablecloths, and so on, to dry and made myself a hot cup of tea. It was nice to escape the rain and wind and watch it from an inside vantage.
Wishing everybody a happy and creative upcoming week.
