Agree with you about just how quickly the year is going. Looks like a fascinating market Randy. Love the vibrancy of the colours you have captured here.

I heard a story on NPR yesterday about this market in Santa Fe. They told about how beneficial it has been for these craftsmen who, because of globalization, are not able to make a living in their own countries with these crafts any longer. Because they are able to sell these items in other countries, they are able to continue traditional crafts and make a good living doing it. Wonderful!

It sure makes a colorful picture. I have made some jewelry in the past and would have loved to use some of these beads.

I like African beading almost as much as Native American beading...

The colours make this a wonderfully happy picture!
