Tidbits : "Weihnachtsmarkt"


I attended last weekend for the first time the Xmas market here in the neighbourhood (Weihnachtsmarkt Süderbrarup); it was in the former cattle exhibition hall. In the past this region had a lot of breeders from the beautiful Angler cattle and those breeders held their shows in this hall. An old brick & wood building, with lots of open air ventilation. So pretty romantic but very cold.... It was quite dark in there too, so my husband had to go home again to get me a lamp. Next year we have to plan that better; I need much more light on my table !
There were about 20 market stands, from wooden toys to aquarells, and of course lots of punch and food. I was surprised to see so much artists and the market had lots of visitors. There were musical events with child choirs, bands, Santa Claus, clowns, ets. too. It was nice to see those kids enjoying themselves.

At the moment I am quite exhausted from this happening; my legs hurt, I got a cold and could not speak any good German anymore at the end of these 2 days (I am Dutch myself). But I sold quite some hats, especially of the black winter ones, and my button jewelry did it well too. So, maybe next year again ???

Get well soon - it's tough to have a market on these cold days, but at least it was a success! Congrats on your sales!
