It was a much cooler start today than previous weeks. We are definitely moving into winter. I wore my fingerless gloves and despite wearing my winter woollen socks, my toes remained cold throughout the day.
My first customer was from New Zealand. She’s a nurse and working eight weeks in Burnie, in the northern Tasmania. https://www.discovertasmania.com.au/places/north-west/burnie/ She purchased a “Hammock Life” print.
A couple visiting from Singapore purchased a “Hammock Life” print.
A couple from the Gold Coast bought ten greeting cards and my original painting titled, “Tickle My Toes”. https://pjpaintings.com/collections/wombats/products/tickle-my-toes
A traveller from Paris, France, working in Melbourne’s metro office, bought a “Enchanted Forest II” and “Hanging Out” print. It was fun to have a short conversation in French.
A couple from Sydney purchased “Sitting on the Fence” and another couple from Sydney, originally from Brazil, purchased a “Spiky Bunk Beds” and a “Bunk Beds” print for baby Sophia’s bedroom.
A couple from New Zealand, visiting their daughter in Melbourne, purchased a “Salamanca Saturdays” print. A young man, also from New Zealand, bought an “Afternoon Siesta” print for his sister last year. He told me that she loved it so much that she brought it to a framer the very next day! He wanted to buy another print to go with it and decided on “Hammock Life”. What a lovely brother! He bought his mother “Goldilocks and the 20 Penguins”.
A local man from Kingston, where Neil the Seal has turned up, bought a “Sea Life” print. https://pulsehobart.com.au/news/neil-the-seal-evicted-from-hobarts-kingston-beach/
While I was packing up, one of the UK sisters I met last week, revisited my stall. She bought two prints: “Bunk Beds” and “Share House” and a card. Then she returned about 10 minutes later and bought a “Scarlet Robins” print and then she returned again and bought another “Scarlet Robins” print. https://pjpaintings.com/collections/birds/products/scarlet-robins
The sisters are off to Melbourne on Monday and then to Cairns for two weeks. Then one is going back to the UK, and the other is going to stay and work. She would like to work in Hobart because she really likes it here.
Packing up was finished later than usual but there was no mad rush, so all good.
Until next week, take care and have fun being creative.
Warmest regards, Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade
