FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1992

he hand-lettered sign
reads "Aroma Pot-
Relaxation, Balance,
Tranquility." On a table, a
variety of pots is assembled,
along with bottles of aromatic
essences.
It's somewhat a surprise to
find aroma therapy pots at an
outdoor bazaar in the heart of
Tel Aviv — which is not, after
all, Southern California.
The amazing variety of
crafts on display, from aroma
pots to ceramic face masks, is
what makes the Nachalat
Benjamin arts and crafts fair
so unique.
At this fair, held twice a
week, the display booths ex-
tend the full length of the all-
pedestrian street for which
the fair is named. Over 250
craftspeople participate.
For the tourist in Tel Aviv,
a visit to this easily accessi-
ble outdoor bazaar is an ideal
way to experience the vitali-
ty and creativity of this live-
ly city.
"I make the pots myself,"
explains Noam Zimin, a
friendly young man in blue T-
shirt and ponytail who stands
next to the table where his
aroma pots are displayed.

He sounds almost like an
American when he speaks,
and it turns out he lived in
Boston for six years. But he's
a native Israeli who has his
own studio and uses a pottery
wheel to make his aromatic
pots.
His booth is near the en-
trance to the crafts fair, and
he's in that same spot every
Tuesday and Friday, rain or
shine, as are all the
craftspeople.
They're here because ,
they've been through a selec-
tion process, have proven that
the crafts they'll display are` ' -
their own work and have
agreed to be here on the '
designated days of the fair.
Their crafts cover a wide
gamut. There are hand- H
crafted toys, decorative
ceramic bowls, leather belts;
pins, bracelets, paperweights,
stained glass window decora-
tions and more.
Not far from Mr. Zimin's
booth, people are gathered
around a table where wooden
boxes open to reveal tiny,;
animals and insects, too. Kids
are intrigued, of course, and –
so are adults.

While people watch, there's
the sound of chimes from a
booth a few steps away: in the
breeze, stained glass chimes
