Scraps and Scribbles


Had been to this Christmas Bazaar last weekend. This was something different from what I attended a few years ago.
As I had been there early I could catch them setting up the shop, or rather the table. The best I liked about this place was the ambience. Surrounded by trees and the sun just coming up, it was a perfect place (and time) for me to take some snaps.


Liked the way the light fell on these bottles and the lamp shade.



On closer examination I found that they were ordinary bottles wound up with some colourful threads.
This guy here had some lovely paintings. I liked that one of the vintage car.


This couple had some interesting items


Few of the stalls were put up by some NGOs


 As it neared 10 am (opening time) the stall owners were all ready and waiting for the customers.




This Bhoole Bisre counter had some old stuff repainted which looked attractive. I liked that perforated tea kettle used as a lamp shade (that blue one hanging there)
Some other tables befitting the season:


One lady was selling hand painted cards and frames.


I noticed that while she waited for the customers she was busy painting new ones.


There was this stall by the name of Green Tokri.  I was surprised that it was manned and run by Europeans. I heard one of them speak and asked her "Are you Dutch?" To which she replied, "No, I am German, she is French, her husband is British . . . . we are a mixed lot" 
Well so much for my knowledge of Dutch.



It seems when they started farming, there was no market for Lettuce in Pune. So they sold them to their friends around Pune.
 Now they have expanded and have an efficient home delivery system. They have some fixed areas of delivery in Pune.

It was 10 am and the customers started trickling in.



I found that the customers were picky and selective about what they buy.

This old book’s stall had brisk business. It was heartening to see that children were still interested in books and made their parents buy quite a few .



Noticed this table at the corner by the name of Scraps and Scribbles.


There were many frames for sale and what was interesting was that almost all of them were made from scrap material.


The picture above has the tree and the grass made from paper torn from old magazines. The leaves are some dried leaves (I think those leaves have a seed in the middle and come under the category of seed dispersal by spin and flutter). The people under the tree is a collage of broken egg shells.

Many were appreciative about the effort and the idea. Some wanted to write in the comment book.

Her definition of scraps and scribbles


She said that if people placed orders, she was ready to deliver as per their requirement, and that included overseas orders too.

  30. I assume this bazaar is in your town of Pune or nearby. I'm envying the warm weather! The items are colorful and appealing which is good at Christmas time. Did you buy anything or were you just socializing and taking pictures? :)

    1. Yes Anita, apart from clicking, I did make some purchases. Also helped Diamay in "manning" the counter while she stepped out for some errand.
      This was held in the heart of the Pune city, at the lawns of a prominent industrialist here.
