Brooms: $10Bds.  The broom lady's smile: priceless

Driving down the street near Belleville the other day, I spied this lovely broom-maker. HAD to stop.

With her homemade sign and sunny smile, she charmed me completely. Bought a broom, made with dried palm fronds — she was charging $10Bds ($5US), but I paid double and asked if I could take her photo for my blog. She was fine with it and even stood up and posed next to her broom display for this shot.

I wish I’d had time to sit and chat awhile, but I’d pulled over with lots of traffic whizzing by; I was half on the sidewalk, half in the street. (Definitely becoming a Bajan driver …)

PS The broom works great, especially on carpet.
