Old Time Market – Umeå

market5

I love the craft markets at Gammlia in Umeå! This one had an emphasis on old fashioned crafts but they also had all of the usual crafters in the area there. I was really happy that this one happened while my mom and aunt were visiting so that they could see it.

Phong and I played count the dogs. There were eighteen! We saw an amazing stand by an artist called Nymla. I was so excited by her work that I didn’t even take any pictures! She makes trolls and horns and leather bound books. She has an Etsy under that name as well as a facebook.

We found a candy stand with rope candies. They’re a long gummy tube filled with sugary flavored paste and they come in a bunch of different flavors. Usually they come in strawberry, watermelon, cola, and raspberry.

 

This was Phong when I pointed out that they had a coconut one. >
