Cane Artifacts@Street sale

Roadside sales are the only option for these cane artisans. Using a bicycle to load the items and carry them to the nearest market place. After a good bargain, they might be able to sell entire lot over just one weekend due to great demand for bamboo items and affordable pricing to consumers….

I thought they might be biking around trying to sell the baskets — which I think are lovely, by the way.

Beautiful street shot! His cane creations are incredible! Looks like A LOT of work and skill. How many Rupees for one? Fun snap!
