I am still feeling soggy as I write this. It rained when setting up, taking down and in between. Because my site is on a slope, I had a small rivulet running through my stall. My bathroom has dripping wet table cloths and gazebo side walls hanging in it and the gazebo is drying upside down. Nevertheless, there were some brave souls that ventured out and visited Salamanca Market.
A couple bought two zip pouches for easy postage to their grandchildren, a “Family Outing” for the grandson and “Lazy Days’ for the granddaughter, who has heaps of coloured pencils, crayons and more. A “Lazy Days” zip pouch was bought by another person for her granddaughter who also has a large supply of drawing utensils.
A retired hairdresser from Brisbane was tickled pink with “Glamour Girls”. She told me it was her and her two friends.
A young lady, who has just painted her house and has lots of blank walls, bought “Double Date IV” and “The Three Amigos II” prints.
A teenage young man, with some assistance from his mother, decided to buy a “Hanging Out” tote bag for a Christmas present for his 15-year-old sister. What a nice brother!
A young couple, from Spain, who arrived before the COVID outbreak, bought a whale and “Salamanca Saturdays” prints. Another young couple from Adelaide bought an “Iconic Aussies” print.
Upon arriving home, the rain intensified, which made me feel grateful that it wasn’t wetter than it was. Also, we escaped the 40 km gusts of wind which was predicted. That didn’t happen. Yay!
Wishing one and all a great weekend and upcoming week.
Take care, from Patricia (PJ)
