Public Garden has always been the craft market and flea to look out for for really interesting things, wardrobe and home wise. I’ve visited a couple of times in the past and what struck me was the really friendly vendors who are always ready to talk a little more about their wares yet give you space to think and enjoy picking up their stuff for a closer look.
But this time, I was the one behind the booth! Pretty intense stuff if you ask me, I could never do it alone so I asked my good friend along and we had a really great time meeting everyone who stopped by.
Brought down all the things done over the past few months, including teascoops, spoons, wallflower houses and matchy-matchy pairs of butterknives (which I love making most, but also the most challenging to get both to be as identical as possible).
Here’s my favourite set of butterknives in Walnut, passed on to the hands of this lovely couple! This picture really sums it up for me.
After all the longs hours of carving, whittling and sanding, seeing these wooden wares go on to the homes of people who understand that handcrafted items are made more special by the memories they go on to create when used, and not just because they’re handmade, makes me real real happy indeed.
Was a bit sad when it came to an end but it’s my best weekend of the year so far! Thank you for all your kind words, feedback and support. I thank God for all of you cause you were part of this special experience as I journey onward on Everyday Canoe. I’ll keep on keeping on!
