Commerce Market (Nantes France)

Dispatch 19/9/2010

Below are photos of figurines purchased from African market women. It is my habit to purchase something form street vendors particuarly market women when I visit a place.
African wood cargo played a big role in the slave trade in Nantes.  I’m just doing my part to appease the spirits on the Loire by recirculating the wealth.
