Night Market

Friday night we went to the night market. Always interesting things there, and the worst of the day's brutal heat is subsiding as a balmy night breeze picks up. 

See the little girl in the white dress? She was acting out and doing all the cute little hand/dance motions to the old song "The Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round" as the performer sang. So cute!

Intricate local sweetgrass baskets:

Lots of neat things to see and/or purchase!....beautiful paintings and drawings, handmade jewelry, candles, clothing, woodworking, cosmetics, leather goods, glass items, etc.

 I spotted these bright and colorful bottles and went in for a closer look!
Wouldn't those be beautiful in a windowsill at night?

And WHAT IS this scary creepy strange looking thing here?!

Wait....it's singing and DANCING!!?? to oldies music??

It's okay....it's just "Mr. Bonetangles", a regular Charleston performer. Don't see too many marionettes these days do we?

  1. I'm sure that walking around Charleston at NIGHT in the summer would be preferable to me since I hate the hot summers... Looks like TONS of fun!!!

  2. What did you find? What did you buy? I guess I would have wanted one of those amazing baskets and then I would hope I would have a little money to fill it up! lol A girl can dream, can't she? Fabulous!!!

  3. This looks like a ton of fun. I'm afraid I would overspend!

  4. You are fortunate to live there!

  5. You really do get to see some of the most beautiful sights! I've just caught up looking back at all your pictures. Lately, I've been behind with everything. Love your outfits!
