When I set up my new space at Hidden Treasures, I asked the manager Junior if it would be OK to contribute a large zen garden to be strategically placed near the entrance where people could “feel free to play in the sand!” Of course it would be a great way to steer interested people to my display down the aisle.
Apparently, as soon as it was up, the child of one of the vendors began to pick up the rake to play. Once again, I realized that the children always seem to know what to do with the little gardens. Unlike some adults who walk away from my display, scratching their heads saying “what the heck were those things!”
Below, this young gal is having fun, playing in the sand.
