Just upon my arrival at home I write these lines.
It is not even that I am outraged and furious anymore, but it makes me sad and sick to my stomach what people wouldn't do for money...
I was to participate at a market in the entrance hall of Julius Mall together with my father. For a month and a half now, there was nothing for me, but work work and some more work, that I enjoyed of course, yet there was a purpose, to sell at the Christmas Market.
It was very clear what kind of creations I have, both usable ceramics and jewelry, I mean, I have been doing this for about two years now... I tend to know for certain what exactly are the domains I cover. In the very first phone call, when I was just inquiring information about the market, I was asked what my things are, I naturally told ceramics and jewelry. So that now, after a month since this phone-call, Mrs. Sanmarghitan calls me a liar, telling me that if I put another pair of earrings on my stand, I can be sure to be kicked out tomorrow. 55 euros/square meter, I'll say! For this it was worth saying "sure, there are still places, love, come and we will settle everything this afternoon." And when I arrive she comes with this kind of crap, because supposedly it is not allowed with jewels at this market. I can totally accept that, but if I were told this at the first talk, obviously -AS A JEWELER- I would have looked for another market in town, there is really plenty to choose from.
And whenever I realize that tears are rushing down in streams on my cheeks I wonder, why is it that people are greedy to this extent, lowering themselves to this level? It is so so pathetic and sad!
And now I will be there a whole week, without my earrings, necklaces or broaches. Continuing to smile as people come around and trying to share the decorations and few tableware that I have! Luckily my dad has lots of decorations.... Come around and say hi, if you pass by. Let's show the world that there is also a different one, with a warmer heart!
