And then it was time again. To become a saleswoman, or “kremmerkone” as it named in norwegian. I have contemplated setting up a booth earlier this year, but decided against it. We are heading into the most busy months for all that sell something. I am better off saving up some energy for those. I am having three fairs this winter. Two of them are new, and I am revisiting one of last year. The one where I actually sold something…
This year I have been accepted into the large Christmas Fair at Norsk Folkemuseum. I have no idea how that happened, but there you are. We are talking heavy tradition here, and a large number of visitors. I am a bit scared. So scared I only signed up for one day.
Two of these fairs are outdoors. Ooof. Which is fine if you live in New Zealand this time of year. That wonderful place where they celebrate christmas on the beach.
This is sadly Norway, and I know it is going to hurt. You simply cannot fend off cold for so many hours standing still, even if you are an expert in dressing yourself up for the weather. It is going to be great though, a lovely experience. Just look at that first picture. Don`t you agree?
