My dear Followers and Customers!

More than a year has passed since my last post, but what a year it was !! Bad and good things have happened to me, but let’s focus more on the good things and within that this summer.

The market season was opened by Kiskert Piac ( Little garden Market) on May 30, 2021, on the Seagull Promenade at Mom Kult. This fair was pretty successful.

Many people stopped at my booth, they were interested in my stamp art pictures, we talked a lot and some of them came back… The first picture I have sold was the map of Italy that I have made out of 100% used Italian postage stamps.

Another location for Kiskert Piac has been Anker Avenue, next to Madhouse in the 6th district.

In the summer I have found a new location, namely the Agárdi Almárium in Gárdony next to Lake Velence, which is about 50 km away from Budapest. Agardi Almarium is a Producers’s Market, Bistro, Culture Park, and a Distillery at the same time.
All the markets I have attended during summer, I had the biggest table there 🙂

See below:

This producer market has stolen my heart. It is a very family-friendly place with live music, champagne, breakfast, live theatre for kids and last but not least great people. The organizer, Kriszti Virág, is a man of all hearts, who was very positive about my products after our first letter exchange 🙂

Here I met Ildiko right at the first fair, whom I invited to my booth and after she came over, immediately fell in love with the Hand of Fatima and all my other stamp creations.
After talking with her for a long time, I learned that her great love was Ecuador because she has worked there as a missionary in one of the miserable colonies 20 years ago. She told me a lot about her experiences in Ecuador and the Galapagos islands.

We agreed that if I could find Ecuadorian stamps, I would make her the Map of Ecuador.

None of us seriously thought I was going to find Ecuadorian stamps within a short time…

I ordered them at the end of July and in 2 weeks, just on 13th August, which was a Friday, it arrived by post. There has never been a Friday 13 so lucky day in my life. As soon as I received the envelope, I opened it and saw that one of the stamps was stamped with 1889-1890 !! I was holding a 126-year-old stamp in my hand! I thought I was fainting. From whom I bought the stamps, I asked her where she bought them and she replied that she got them at an auction. It belonged to an old man who had a collection of four garage stamps …

I immediately called Ildiko to tell her the good news … she was completely fainting too. I told her I wouldn’t have time to start the map in August, but it would be ready in the first week of September. That’s how it happened, but we still had to wait for the handover. First, she got sick, then I did.

Unfortunately, I was not present at the handover because I handed over the wrapped picture to her parents, later that day Ildikó called me crying that it was prettier than she thought and thanked me for putting the island of Galapagos separately because Ecuador is an integral part of Ecuador and is visible on every map. The color of the stamps was the same as the colors of the Ecuadorian flag (yellow, blue, red) and I compiled the map with this in mind.

Ildikó gave me free hand in everything. Here is the result. The picture is now next to an Ecuadorian weaver in her bedroom. Every morning she wakes up, she returns to her memories to where she was once very happy. I am glad to be a part of her happiness.

I also traveled to Ecuador a bit in my thoughts 🙂


3 fairs were planned in September, but unfortunately, I could attend only the last one.

I had sinusitis in the first 2 weeks of September … no matter how much I wanted to go to fairs, I couldn’t because I knew if I didn’t rest, it could last longer, risking my health.

On the last Sunday of September, there was also a designer fair during Anker Avenue , where I arrived with a new collection.

I combined the stamps with the collage technique, which took me to a new dimension. In addition to the collage, this year I will also decorate my pictures with metal leafs and colored foils, which will give my works a special atmosphere.

Noémi, my jewelry designer friend also visited me 🙂

Thank you for reading my summer stories.

My next fair will be in the Szimpla Kert on 20th November, 2021 from 12-18.

I hope to see you there.
