I've recently been to the town of Lahti in Finland. On Wednesday morning, the fair was held and I was happy to see what people sell there.
Despite the rainy weather, buyers and sellers were many. At first I went to see the seedlings of flowers and vegetables. I was surprised by hanging baskets with tomatoes: some fruits were already hanging on.
Sure, colorful petunias, viola, tagetes, Impatiens and other flowers can brighten any garden.
Nearby I've seen bunches of lilies of the valley, the aroma was so strong that it was impossible to pass by without noticing them.
Further along the stands I've seen beautiful embroideries on cotton tablecloths. You probably know that I love embroidering therefore I looked carefully at them and especially liked the embroidery with Dicentra (Bleeding heart).
Opposite of flowers stall a cheerful elderly lady was selling honey from her own apiary. I've tried - very tasty and odorous honey. Not far from honey stall I loved colorful socks that another lady in pink was selling.
On the other side of a long table people were selling brooms those reminded me a witch's broom that she used flying in the sky :)).
There also was a stall with different wooden cutlery. These were wooden spoons and knives, spoons for honey, handles, chairs, brushes, something more don't know what for are.
There were sold natural bristle brushes for utensils, shoes, barrels... and body, many useful things for sauna.
For me it was a pleasure to take a look at this diversity of things made with love and warmth. The prices were low and I bought an embroidery and a wooden spoon for a Teflon pan.
Do you like visiting such fairs? Do you usually buy something there?
