Last time we were there we met Rachel Sidi, she makes stuffed dolls, and her stand is right next to the stringed instruments quartet. Rachel’s dolls are the old fashioned kind; she makes them from cotton, fleece, fur, and more. They are all in beautiful natural colors and they remind me of my childhood.
Guy wanted the olive green and white checked teddy bear; we call him “Pasim”, which means stripes in Hebrew. Raz chose the grey fleece hare, we call her “Shuli”. This time we visited we bought presents for friends.
Rachel encourages the children that pass by her stand to come over, touch, hold and play with her dolls, while you listen to music by Beethoven and Shubert.
On our way back to the car we purchased fruit and vegetables in the market. Winter is over and the strawberry season is nearly gone, we purchased sweet and wonderful organic strawberries so I can make jam and we can preserve this winter fruit we love so much.
