Christmas market.

The weekend is over and it's time to sum up.

I didn't sell much. What did sell was the amigurumis, I had seven and could probably have sold more. There were alot of people visiting and there were a good feeling. In beforehand I had good expectations for my dolls but they didn't sell. Many people liked them though and smiled at them while passing. Too expensive I guess.
But, I learned alot and am not sad. I know what to do if I join in next year. This was my first time so I had much to learn, and I did. All in all it was a fun event. Both Saturday and Sunday a male choire visited and sang beautiful hymnes and Christmas songs. I love choires with male voices only, there's something special about that.


I don't think I've told you about my latest purchase. I happened to stumble upon a book made by my all time favorite Christmas artist. I wrote about him before Christmas last year and wrongly called him Andreas Midthun. His name is Kjell E. Midthun. He has specialized on painting nisser, ( a combo of a gnome and a santa) The book contains alot of new images and I simply love them all. You can see some of the paintings here. if you choose to preview the book.
A favorite of mine, in this book, is a painting called Easy Rider, where Nissen rides a bike. Another one is called National grief, where Nissene are in grief because of July 22nd.
I'm so glad I found the book, and I already have bought some Christmas cards for sending this year.

I hope you've had a nice weekend too.

  2. Sorry you didn't sell more but now you know what people want so next year will be better.
