It was dark and 4 degrees when I exited my house. My set-up took about an hour and a half, and right on cue, my first visitor to the stall arrived, a lady from Deloraine, Tasmania. She bought “Under My Red Umbrella” and “Hayride” prints.
A couple visiting from Queensland, recognised my art because her daughter follows me on Facebook and ordered a wombat tote bag online for her as she is wombat-mad. She was wearing a wombat badge, wombat earrings and a wombat top. She purchased a “Lazy Days” pouch.
A couple, from Launceston on a Hobart weekend get-away, purchased a “Meet Me at the Gate” print. They already have quite a few of my prints. Most of them are hanging up in their daughter’s bedroom. They have four sons and one daughter. I think they are very deserving of their get-away break!
A couple, expecting their first child, who left Geelong, Victoria, just before the lockdown, bought “Share House” and “Sitting on the Fence” for their nursery.
A mother and school aged son, visiting from Burnie during the last week of the two-week school holiday period, chose a print titled “Hanging Out”. Another lady, leaving Tasmania and moving to South Australia to be closer to family, also purchased a “Hanging Out” print and “Double Date IV”.
Two young ladies, extending their Tasmanian holiday because Victoria has gone into lock-down, bought a “Sitting on the Fence” print.
Honeymooners from Cairns, visiting Hobart for four days, then Freycinet and Cradle Mountain for the remainder of their time away, perused the stall. She said that her sister is having a baby and that a wombat print would look really good in a nursery.
Jodie and I rugged up at Salamanca Market. We’re next door neighbours at the market, site 30 and 31.
I’ll be back at Salamanca Market in a fortnight, July 31st. All the prints in this post are available at: http://www.pjpaintings.com
Wishing everybody a safe upcoming week.
Cheers, Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade
