I found a market happening on Saturday afternoon in a square near my hotel in the Old Town.
Much like the market outside St James’s church in London, which I photographed the other day, it sells all manner of jewellery, leather goods, curios and decorative objects, some from other parts of the world – coral necklaces and so on. Look.
Imagine how much I wanted one of these yellow necklaces to wear with my yellow coat and blue dress. The guy wanted 200 Swiss francs for them. Even when he dropped it to 150, I was not in the market, unfortunately. I have just foolishly spent all my money on the Canary Islands and I still haven’t finished paying for the roof.
Now check out these amazing brushes and even coat hangers.
I didn’t know I was going to Zurich to take photos of coat hangers, but there you have it. And that’s all the Swiss news.
