Festival

These two people own this handicrafts stall in a road side festival in Lahore, Roadside festivals with small shops and stalls selling clothes, handicrafts and food are a common site in spring. This particular stall had an assortment of wall hangings, bed sheets, table cloths and cushions in wonderful colors all made by women in the rural areas of the Thar Desert and brought hundreds of miles to the city to be sold.


Ps. Blogger issues still exit but I found a proxy that is letting me post pictures as well as view and comment on blogs, so thats good.

Clueless, it was a father and son and the were selling some amazing stuff and real cheap prices, the son was kind enough to wear the cap when I told him to.

ptowngirl, Thanks for your visits and comments,The culture is amazing , I'm glad you like the pictures. I was able to post and comment using a proxy to bypass the sensors, I hope the problem gets resolved soon because it is giving me a lot of headaches.

Yoshi, yes the colors were wonderful I took lots of pictures of other things they had will post them a bit later.

Love the way the boy's hat melds into the patterns on the wall. Had to enlarge a bit to see it better. Lively looking shop. I love visiting these kinds of places when traveling especially. Very nice today.
