All sales come to him who waits...

This looks like a tough way to make money. Where was everyone on this sunny day?

I've been to some of those art shows in Florida - some, especially the Gasparilla Art show in Tampa, are incredible! As EG says - it is a tough way to make a living. Hope he did well.

I often wonder if these crafts people make enough money to pay for the booth space. Some can be quite expensive.

Art Fairs are a show case for wonderful and creative talent!

I like these little houses....but I've stopped buying 'things' to sit around;downsizing.

Waiting is certainly not one of my few virtues... I remember some family (uncle) who owned a furniture shop and I used to think that I would die of boredom working in a place like that, I'd rather work in a bakery or something, where there's much more going on, even with possibly less earnings...
Anyway, I love the way you capture and share with us moments of day to day life!
God bless you!

I really liked the processing treatment on this photo. Not sure how you did it.

... but remember in retirement, sitting and waiting is fine work, if you can get it, I hear.

A good book comes in handy for this kind of work.
We woke to snow this morning. And since we have no where to go, let it snow, let it snow...

I would love to browse around in there! Thank you so much for all of your kind comments lately Lowell. I really appreciate it. I hit a few rough patches there for awhile, but I'm getting back to normal hopefully and glad to be back blogging!

If he wants to make a sale he should be facing the public and engaging with them, and looking as though he means business. He can sit at home anytime and read his book

I like the capture:)

Halcyon said...

Looks like he might be there awhile! Did you at least stop to talk to him?

With more and more people like Bibi and me, people like this artisan have a tough time making it. It's sad.

Perfect display!
