The Not So Mad Hatter

Sunday, May 9, 2010

Certainly one of the most colorful vendors at The Olympia Wooden Boat Fair this weekend in downtown Olympia.


  1. Latin American? Always so colourful and therefore photogenic!

  2. AB Says:

    The colours from the Andes are always amazing

  3. Hilda Says:

    Never mind the hats, I see some rugs and sling bags that look absolutely fantastic!

  4. such a colorful photo and looks like fun to dig through his wares. I am glad you enjoyed the Phoenician resort series. I have started a week of cool marco images. I hope all is well. We have been working far too much lately

  5. Lois Says:

    I would do some serious damage to my wallet there!

  6. Anonymous Says:

    certainly very colorful & loads of stuff to choose from!

  7. Yolanda Says:

    Nice brilliant colors! I love the way you captured the vendor mimicking the subjects on the tapestries below him - with the hat and his hand to his mouth. Very interesting! :)

  8. Thanks everybody!

    Lois cracked me up! :-)

  9. Jacob Says:

    Nice shot, Don! I want one of those yellow T-shirts. And maybe a fedora.

    What did you buy?

  10. Steffe Says:

    I noticed the same thing as Yolanda. I normally never buy thing at markets but it looks like he has a few interesting items for sale here.

    Yolanda and Steffe, great comments. Don and Krise, great photo. I love South American woven things. I have a couple of small tapestries somewhat in the style of the yellow one, but white.

  12. Claire Says:

    This guy sells outside the library at Evergreen sometimes and he is so sweet! I used to stop and say hi sometimes. He always recognized me and would chat for a while. :)

    Great blog by the way! I'm new to it, but loving all the pictures.

  13. Jacob: Unfortunately.......nothing. :-(

    tapirgal: Thank you. They are nice aren't they?

    Claire: Thank you. Nice to have one of the locals following along! :-)
