Denton Market Post (2)

Music for your pleasure - by the ONO BAND.
Members of the Grantham Rotary Club.Here's a stall where DW spent some of her money on, Sharon Dickinson works in pewter and silver making jewellery, mirrors and plaques making beautiful work to her own designs.
It's not often that DW buys paintings but she couldn't resist the colourful and vibrant paintings on Mike Thomas Monroe's stall. He used watercolour and collage to paint really happy pictures and at only £5 (less than 3$) he was giving away the little French boat that DW bought. Mike was telling us that he used to work for the Northern Lighthouse board ferrying people out to the lighthouses near Oban, Scotland. What he didn't tell us was that he had found Spanish Treasure from a sunken ship in 2006 and is a published author. He was selling his work far too cheaply, but what a charming man!



It sure is a wonderful Market and you never know just who you will meet there.

Mac: Sounds like a fun market, I have a hard time buying frames for that price.

Bargain prices for original works of art. I love the sea, so I'm sure there would be a picture that would be just right for me.
