For this week I guess I am closer to a legitimate market than I have bene for a while with sharing some shots of the Holiday Fair in Grand Central, and annual event in one of the passages ways in Grand Central, always worth a walk through to see what they have, but often so busy its hard to get shots of the stall, but lets go in and see what we can find.

Of course on stall that caught my eye was this photographers stall, with hand made prints on Gold Leaf, Iam not sure how it is done but I loved this guys work.

And another stall with items for men caps Belts and other colorful things, I am not sure how much they have to pay for a stall in this fair but i would guess its not cheap, and for that matter neither are the prices of goods in this fair, but some are unique items you may not find anywhere else so if its something you love it may well be a fair price.

And another stall more focused for men, or perhaps items for men, but I did notice after this shot some ladies shopping in there perhaps for the men in their life.

Some nice ties and socks in there I must say I seldom wear ties these days, but for the odd time I do a colorful one like they sell would be my style, the ones I have inthe office at the moment for meetings they require a more formal look are by the Jerry Garcia Brand ties, so formal with a tie but the colors and patterns stand out shalI say LOL

Now this stand is another one that caught my eye with such colorful plates and dishes, I could have happily picked up a few things from this shop also, but sometimes my tastes for items like this clash with the color schemes we have so shopping for these sort of items I do with my wife to save me having to return items that look a lot more beautiful inthe shop than they do at home

Now these were just a few of the stalls that caught my eye,I may go back there again for a future post showing some of the other stalls

This is pretty cool! I am excited because I actually get to take part in the Market Friday posts today.

Cool I will be sure to watch for your post

Tis the season to buy a tie or belt for dad lol I like eclectic bright plates too but share your caution in bringing one home

LOL I know my taste for things can sometimes be eccentric so its good I am curious, I was tempted to buy some belts though LOL

Really fantastic to catch a glimpse of these stores at Grand Central Jay. Haven't heard of printing on Gold Leaf before but the smaller mounted works look incredibly beautiful and very special. Also the prints of trees on the top left wall. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Gold Leaf printing was an old technique that not many do these days I must research how it is done
Yes I particular liked the trees prints as well

Amazing photographs of Holiday Fair..
Thanks for sharing with us this beautiful place..

awesome your work friend,i like your post @tattoodjay

Thanks Kindly

thank you again friend.

Oh, yeah!!! I really love these little stalls, they hold such unusual little treasures and like you, the allure of the gold leaf reeled me in! Aren't they so beautiful???

It is a real process to do and too complicated for me to want to fool with it, but the results are quite amazing.

I am always a sucker for unusual or cool ties. Jerry Garcia is a fave because his were always a little different than the run of the mill. Thank you so much for taking me there and the glass... Oh!! I love it but it would clash with my house! ;)

I can love it from afar! Thank you so much for the time and effort spent putting these together.


I love these fairs they have at this time of year you never know what you will find, I must do some research on the gold leaf printing I mam pretty intrigued by it, may be something to add to my list when I retire

Ohh yes If I am forced to wear a tie it has to make a statement lOL
