Eastern European Markets

There are a plethora of cute handmade crafts at many Eastern European markets.
The smell of the bees wax was amazing at this cute little booth:


I like the figurines, especially of the animals made out of sticks and wood:


Flowers:

Bells:

Books:

Pottery:
Alcohol- This was a mead (honey wine):
Amazing handmade wooden products:

If you could bring one thing home what would it be?

Becherovka! But I don't see it in the market, so I will settle for the hedgehog and some new wooden spoons.

Wow that is a hard choice... I like all the wooden things & the bookseller with those beautiful paper maché eggs. Love seeing all these venders. Thanks for sharing this wonderful adventure!

I could lose myself in that market.

I'd take home an owl. I've got a new thing for owls.

I bought a chess set whilst in Prague and some glass bead earrings.. I love PRAGUE!!

Where was this?

Hands down the bees wax owl candles. I love owls and it would add to my collection. If I would hand out with one person it would be the old guy selling the booze. He looks like a fun guy, no?

What a nice market. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I can nearly feel the atmosphere on them.
And funny, I love owls, I have a weak spot for them, and I can see in some other comments a few other people with the same weakness. I wish right now I could buy one of the wooden ones over in your pictures!

the wax candles are very ecological-there is nothing really left afterwards:)

I love the market. What great stuff. I think I would bring home something wooden and hopefully carved or painted. What are you bringing home?

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
