Well it’s just about that time again, and we are getting ourselves ready for the Craft Market to be held in Via Garibaldi here in Venice at the end of this month. We have a fairly good stock of bits and pieces, but were surprised at the last market by just how many earrings went, so need to make a few more of those. The odd thing is that on the previous occasion, the felt items seemed to be more popular. These markets are so infrequent (only 6 a year) that it is very difficult to build up an accurate picture of what goes or not. The passers-by vary so much because of the different kind of events going on in the city, so as this market it linked in with the Venice Marathon, who knows what the ‘average’ customer might be like!
Anyway, if you happen to be in town, do pop by to find us even if just to say hello! If you do decide to make a purchase, you can be sure of a discount just by telling us the name and address of this web site!
You will find the event listed in the events’ calendar on this site, but just to remind you, here are the details:
‘Mercatino di Via Garibaldi’, Via Giuseppe Garibaldi, Venice on Sunday 28th October, from about 10.00 through until 20.00, weather permitting.
When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experiments. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not only buying a thing, but a piece of heart, a part of the soul, a moment in the life of someone.
