Monteverde market.

Saturday morning farmers market in Monteverde; it takes place year round in the high school gymnasium, quite modest but obviously acts as a social meeting place as well.
Here is the chicken...

and some veggies

Monteverde is also home to Casem... started in 1982, a homegrown womens artisans co opereative. I have been buying gifts there for many years, but this time, nothing caught my eye and I feel they have 'gone off the boil' in recent times. Perhaps its because they are consciously making for the tourist market.

here in the cloud forest I am still plugged into etsy.
Two very interesting and unusual treasuries have featured some of my items this week

A vintage 40s silk scarf was used in She's a natural beauty was put together by LauraGlassArtQuilts. She has a lovely etsy craft shop, original and very pretty.

and this 60s woven bedspread was used in patches of fire and ice, a super list curated by Hagarae, who has a brilliant jewelry shop in Israel. Both worth checking out.
