Purses in place

Standard

A bit of a jumble, but the leatherwork stall is now dressed for market – though not the leatherworker, as yet.

Passing through

Just a smidgeon of this and that

Seem to have let the rhythm of working a little bit when possible slip. Have got some of the items for the leather worker’s stall mustered (mostly purses and bags and a couple of bottles) but not sure yet how to display them. Need to make some belts to go with them and possibly add a rolled sheep skin to add to the two rolls of unused skins below the stall. The four in the holder are for the remaining characters still waiting to be ‘built’ and dressed.

Must get back into the swing of things 🙂

Chip off the old block?

Another trader on the market that doesn’t use a stall to display the wares is the granddaughter of one of the Hogepotche Hall washerwomen – yes, granny’s still got her hands in water

Animals at the market – the menagerie so far, dog, chimpanzee, hens, chicks (in cage) cockerel, cat, rodent … and two humans

The mildly damped and plastic + elastic band wrapped skirt got dried the next morning and the very marmalade cat had some dark makeup rubbed in to make it a little less vibrant.  I chose the cockerel and two loose hens as they came without a stabilising hunk of grass etc under their feet but I found myself creating a base for the two hens from spare pieces of faux stonework to make them a little more stable and give an area to wax stick some of the meal corn being thrown down for them.

Next up should be the leather worker but I’ve not yet prepped enough goods for his stall, not to mention that I’ve used a couple of items of his stock to give purses to Autolycus and the chuck girl.   Leatherwork first.

The pedlar laiden down with goods has set up his spot at the very miniature market next to Hogepotche Hall

He’s acquired two hairy friends who take part willingly or unwillingly in his wandering lifestyle. He’s trying at the moment to cajole one unhappy worker with an apple

Um … considering the apple

Other comanion wants to know when he’ll get a little something!

Have a good weekend one and all 🙂
