Romanian Craftsmanship

So every year on August 15th there is a HUGE celebration here for sailor's or people named Maria, Mary, Marius, etc. - in honor of the virgin Mary.

Well for a week prior to the 15th, tradespeople come in from all over the surrounding area, artistsans of every type have a booth set up where they sell their goods.  Here are some of my shots. 

Please bear in mind I'm an amateur whose still trying to learn all the "tricks".

I know right??? I really want some of the hand carved spoons, and those olive oil jars!!!

Glad you said what you loved - now I know what to send you guys next summer! I'm awful at picking out gifts!

WOW! Beautiful stuff! BTW, the little guy in the privy reminded me of my mid-week post. How do the prices compare with the shows in America?
