Craft Fair in Riga

Our visit to Riga was planned to include the large annual craft fair which is held at the Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum – the weather cooperated and we were able to see crafts, demonstrations and reconstructions of historic cottages and other buildings from the 16th-19th centuries. I’m sure the kitchen was state-of-the-art for its time, but I’m happy not to have to cook there!

A linen lace doily similar to the one the lady is holding (but unbleached), and a small linen table cloth from the weavers might have followed me home, but I couldn’t figure out how to pack any of the baskets πŸ˜‰
