You may know that I am a huge admirer of the ladies who sell things. I see many of them on my walks and have had lots of opportunities to observe their sales techniques.
The ladies who sell things are very clever and use a range of subliminal techniques to increase their sales – you may recall my investigative stories about the use of lemons to attract customers.
The lady in the picture is selling beeswax candles. Candles are sold everywhere in Georgia and are used for prayer and religious devotion.
What may not be immediately noticeable in the picture is the weighing machine.
Georgian food is especially delicious and it is not difficult to put on an extra kilo or two or three!
Perhaps this lady who sells things has realised that people who are concerned about their weight sometimes ask for divine intervention to support their diet.
I can imagine the conversation. Your friend wants to lose 10 kilos? Then you will need two large candles and five small ones.
