My day at the SUNDAY MARKET in Amsterdam

Not scared off by all doom and gloom weather reports, a lot of people visited the Sunday Market in Amsterdam today. I was one of them.
One of the reasons was: it being an opportunity of saying hello to all the Etsy sellers who had a booth. 

The other reason was that in autumn I would like to take my knitwear to a crafty / handmade market, so I am doing some field research.

The atmosphere on the Sunday market is relaxed and friendly. I liked the variation of crafts represented. There is something for everyone and on top of that delicious food available.

You can find a pic of some of my purchases here.
*The earrings are from Fleurfatale.-- [similar earrings from her shop]
*On my way to the market it was my first time to travel with the OV Chip card (a public transport card) and I realised it was not convenient to put it in my wallet in my bag everytime I boarded or left a bus/train.
Luckily I found my solution in the metro card holder at the booth of Spectacle a la Maison.

Some impressions of the booths:

And a lot of other ETSY Sellers :

AmcPoelmanDesign, Mamutopia, Tizzalicious.

Keep updated about Dutch artists on Dutch Handmade.

A special thanks goes to Mitsy ( Artmind ) for the creative challenge in a goodie bag :)

I did see Matt (Etsy rep. Berlin) for a sec, but he was on a shopping spree ;-P

Hi Martice, someone else was keeping an eye on your booth when I passed it. It's funny though, we both live in the same town, and yet we never meet....
Thanks for sharing your photos. I even see myself in Thangbai's booth. It was nice meeting you again. As a fellow business women I hope your business will take off well. Best of luck.
