The sky was a glowing orange-red when I left the house for Salamanca Market this morning.
My first customer of the day was somebody from Sydney visiting Tasmania. She’s looking forward to doing her three-day acrylic class that she enrolled in. She purchased a “Salamanca Saturdays” cushion cover to remember her Tasmanian visit.
A family of four were drawn into the PJ Paintings stall by the 9-year-old son. A “Sitting on the Fence” print. I gave him a hefty discount. They used to live in Tasmania and now they live in Melbourne. They are here for their Nan’s 80th birthday, along with her other 18 grandchildren that live all over Australia and have also made the journey for this milestone birthday.
A grandmother bought an “Unwinding” print for her 4-year-old grandson and a teacher working across two primary schools bought four emu prints to display in both her offices. She wanted the emus because she thinks that the children will engage with them. She purchased “Family Outing”, “Glamour Girls”, “Story time” and “Joy ride”.
A visitor from Byron Bay bought a “Spanish Eyes (Red)” print and another visitor living in between Sydney and Brisbane on the coast, Bought a “Salamanca Saturdays” print.
Evelyn, from Netherlands, who has relatives living in Australia, is visiting Australia five weeks. She paints water colour landscapes. She purchased a “The Three Amigos” print.
A lady, living approximately 80km from Melbourne, in regional Victoria, bought a “Christmas Siesta” print. She has a wombat that lives on her property, and she has recently spotted an echidna! I forgot to ask her if she has named her wombat.
