There were twob;axksmiths worlimg bothe forges and all the related axticitu goimg om Besides therrer was a beoom maker, a rope maked,mpeop;e cjyrming butter,. a huge dulcimer vand and a fellow wirh a bass fiddle playimg with tgem. Hardly sophistixated music but rea;;y very prettu.
I knew when we left there sumdat mortmimg that I would never see the shop or the villiage I grew up in. agaim but I guess Ihave made peace with thaat, Tememories of the shop when I was a child amd seeiimg it preserved so comp;ete;y will stick with me even thoygh I wom;t be able to see it amymore
