I have been looking for a door sign for our apartment for a long time, but even in a city full of artists nothing really jumped out at me. A door sign is really not a big deal but I wanted ours to not only reflect the style of our apartment, but also to represent us as a couple. I wanted people to feel excited and at the same time calm as soon as they reach our front door, and to immediately feel at home.
Last week I was strolling along the quirky Arts and Crafts Fair on Nahalat Benyamin in Tel Aviv when the door sign I had been searching for all along was suddenly standing right in front of me. The artist was a charming young lady from Japan who had come to Israel to be with her Israeli husband. She had given up her successful career as a Japanese animation artist and was now using Japanese clay to create delicious signs, magnets and jewellery. Immediately I bought the sign and she put our names on it and now we have the perfect entrance to our home
Nahalat Benyamin Arts and Crafts Fair is open on Tuesdays and Fridays, and is home to over 200 artists, well worth a visit!
