And my first “De Zelfgemaakte Markt” participation has come and gone. It was a beautiful day with many visitors, many clients and many people with a great sense of humor. I was asked many times why “The World of a Dinosaur” as a name and where are the dinosaurs, which makes me feel I should tell you more about this in a future post.
The morning started on a funny note as my neighbor’s dog decided that the place under my table was much more appealing and thus spent the entire day with us. He got closer and closer to us when a pretty little girl decided that he was an adorable dog and must be petted and loved. She was quite persistent as despite the subtle gestures of the dog (and the hilarious look of desperation in his eyes) of moving further and further from the path, she kept coming closer and delicately petting him. It was a truly adorable and funny image. Her father tried many times to get her to move focus without much success. The whole thing lasted about half an hour and it made for a perfect beginning of the event.
There were many beautiful items, created by beautiful and talented artists. Every stall told a different story.
I am grateful for the opportunity, for the nice neighbors, for the sun that was shining, for the lack of rain, for the presence of the coffee guy at the market, for the people that took out of their time to come to the market, for the people that stopped and admired my creations. I would like to express a heartfelt thank you for every smile, kind word and purchase that you have given me during the event. See you at the next market!
