Pike Place Market
A trip to Seattle would not be complete with out a visit to the world famous Pike Place Market. The market now in it's 100th year features fresh produce, flying fish, and hand made crafts. As a puppeteer and puppet builder, I was thrilled to find Planet of the Puppet - a vendor selling hand made "pop up" puppets.
The pop up puppets were the creation of Rob D'Arc a puppeteer and puppet builder that I had met years ago at a Puppeteers of America Festival - small world. His puppets are made from fun foam and popsicle sticks. The designs are imaginative and colorful. At his booth he was selling pop up puppets of all shapes and sizes.
