The Provincial Park of the “Bois des Rêves” (Dream wood) is located in the heart of Walloon Brabant, a few kilometres from Brussels. It's a huge park and wood.

There was an art and craft market where you could buy local products.

Two big tents contained around 100 stalls of all kinds of craft and artwork.

Calendars and postcards and other stuff and a unhappy lady who told me not to take pictures ! Too late !

This man did metal engravings on glass and metal objects. The little boy was waiting for his name to be engraved on a key holder.

All this was for sale

Amongst other artists there were glass painters


very modern statues

 We liked these handmade bird houses very much ! They were so cheerful

A lady had knitted all the exposed items and was busy with another thing.

Of course there were also sweets

Ilona couldn't resist the local cheese and bought two slices.

and with that olives and different local specialities

There was also a huge collection of different sausages and many other things.

I didn't buy anything, but we had a real nice walk around the market.

Beautiful craft and art work on display at the market.

Stupid grumpy old lady. You are giving the market publicity. The products seem to be of a very high standard.

Oh no you should have bought a birdhouse as you never know when a little wandering wren might stop by for a visit!
Have a happy week

I wondered what that irate lady was pointing at (it was you and your camera, LOL!) what an upmarket market. And the sun looks like it's shining on most of the items. Very cheerful.

Wow! Good opportunity to photograph! Great stuffs. I liked the bird houses the most.

Lots to see and I don't understand why anyone would object to photos being taken. The bird boxes looked attractive but probably too bright for birds to be interested.

Loree said...

I hate it when people tell you not to take photos. But glad you went ahead and took some because we're able to see the market too.

I think the bad tempered lady was afraid you would go home and make copies of all her cards, then sell them cheaply on eBay. She recognized a fellow artist.

This looks fun! Like our Saturday Market! The mad lady is funny .... No pictures?.. I can just hear her. Love the whimsical bird houses .... And the food! I always have to buy some of that!
