re creating sweet sounds.
are
_ Further on, there's a display
of colorful and exotic African
;Th=naasks. There are handmade
leather bracelets and silver
earrings of all sorts. In fact,
there is an abundance of
`iland-crafted jewelry, especial-
ly the silver that the Israelis
favor.
While people look at all of
this, a young woman seated
near a tree strums her guitar.
A street corner artist creates
portrait of a young Israeli
who sits very still as people
w=atch the work in progress.
Others sit at outdoor tables
at the cafes that line the
street, taking a break as they
watch the passing parade.
What a parade! It includes
soldiers in their uniforms,
-parents with young kids in
tow, sabras talking in rapid-
fire Hebrew, tourists speak-
ing many languages and
serious shoppers who come
here because by buying
directly from the artist, they
cn.n get far better prices than
in retail shops or studios.
"The prices are half what
they are in the shops," says
Naama Sela, who is selling
silver earrings, many with
semi-precious stones, that she
and her mother make by
hand.
Born on a kibbutz, she mov-
ed to Tel Aviv five years ago,
nd has been exhibiting her
jewelry at this booth for six
months. "I made a lot of
friends just by meeting people
right here," she says.
,. It's easy to see why. As peo-
pie stop to look at the wares,
they talk to the vendors and
also to one another. Tel Aviv
is a friendly city to begin
with, and it's especially easy
to strike up a conversation in
the informal atmosphere of
an outdoor fair.
Moreover, this setting is far
easier for non-Hebrew speak-
ing tourists than other Israeli
markets. At the larger and
more boisterous Carmel
Market, for instance, very few
C:: the vendors speak English
and it's almost too noisy for
conversation anyway.
But at this outdoor market,
most of the craftspeople can
handle English, and what's
more, they are patient and
fi iendly to tourists.
At Naama Sela's booth, for
example, several teen-age
girls have stopped to try on
one pair of earrings after
another. They ask for a mir-
ror, try on more pairs of earr-
ings — and then walk off
without buying a thing.
Those customers clearly en-
joy the lively ambiance of this
fair, the creativity of the
wares — and the bargain
prices, too. ❑
