There was sun and rain today, and guess when the rain decided to come??? Correct, at packing-up time.
The first customers of the day were visiting from Central Queensland. They were on a bus tour. They purchased “Glamour Girls” and “Bunk Beds” prints.
A wildlife volunteer from Dubbo bought a “Bunk Beds” and “Devilish Siesta” print. She told me one of her best experiences was bottle feeding baby wombats, that they snuggle right in and wrap their fingers around your finger.
A young lady, from Paris, France, in Tasmania for a research conference with her employment, bought two greeting cards. She’s here for two weeks.
An Irish man, residing in Melbourne, Victoria, bought a “Hammock Life” cushion cover. He was wearing a cool hoodie with a “gym + coffee” logo on the sleeve. He said it was an Irish brand.
A lady, originally from El Salvador, now living in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, purchased a “Hammock Life” and “Friendship Refreshes the Soul” tote bags to take to South America when she visits. She said that there is a creek in Maleny, close to where she lives, that she walks along every day, and she sees platypus there about three times a week. How awesome is that! https://oursc.com.au/lifestyle/adventure-sunshine-coast/adventure-sunshine-coast-maleny-boardwalk-platypus-walk
Two ladies from Argentina, speaking Spanish, with one translating in English, purchased a “The Bun” print. They laughed about the story behind the painting. I told them that the yellow-tailed black cockatoo has the shortest crown out of all the black cockatoos, so when the others are flaunting their crowns, they can hold their heads high and say ‘well, la-de-da, look at my hair-do’.
A man that drove down from Sydney, purchased “Salamanca Saturdays” and “Silent Disco” prints. He’s hoping that he can still get on the Spirit of Tasmania despite the flooding in Devonport.
Two ladies visiting from Perth, WA, bought “Bunk Beds”, “Bunk Beds Trio”, Spiky Bunk Beds”, “Afternoon Siesta”, “Devilish Siesta”, and “Taking it Easy” prints, and a “Lazy Days tote bag.
Art thought for the day:
“If I close my eyes, I see things better than with my eyes open.” Henri Matisse
Wishing you a wonderful and creative week.
