I had a purpose to go to the market. There are two stalls selling prints on canvas. In the heat of the excitement I forgot to photograph them, but here is what I bought.
I had brought home some in the past, released them from the frames, cut them to size and used them in bag designs. Just now I am working on Bob Marley, Marilyn Monroe and Laurel and Hardy - such fun!
Off the Carmel Market alley are small streets with many old fashioned shops selling sewing notions, ribbons, buttons, buckles, lace, fasteners and so on. And at an angle to the market runs Nachalat Binjamin Street, which is the fabric sellers domain. One shop after the other, wholesale and retail, is aligned along the street, with bolts outside the doors to show their treasures and lure you in. I bought some gorgeous fabrics there,
and stocked up on sewing stuff and a bit of hardware at the little shops.
We have the most wonderful weather right now, the local outdoor swimming pool is open already for two weeks, the sun is shining, the sky blue and clear - I might go for a swim today. :-)
