Black Friday? Cyber Monday?
no thanks, I'm waiting for my holidays to spend my hard earned pennies!
Mondays are always pretty slow to begin with,waiting for the shipment to arrive , and our office in China to open [insert- trawling Internet for inspiring images- here].... then of course it gets crazy hectic, and why so often my Monday inspiration is posted on a Tuesday!
and this week is no different, but instead of spending my time trying to grab a bargain
rather than looking for inspiration [as I had imagined I would be doing], what with Cyber Monday et al, I keep finding myself drawn to all the things I am hoping to discover when we head to South America next feb.
I am particularly looking forward to doing some shopping in Peru. Given that I don't see much shopping happening in Patagonia and we have limited time in Buenos Aires, of which we are planning on spending catching up with friends. Plus Peru has all the things I love, handicrafts, textiles and hand crafted metal smith-ing
so I may well return like this..... minus the super model cheek bones that is
I always love coming back with beautiful items from my travel, the exoticness they have is always so alluring and they stay with me for years, much longer than most bargains I find online (although I have found some great ones which are life long additions to my wardrobe).
I have a ring (silver, black pnyx & pyrite) I picked up in Laos 7 odd years ago which I wear on a daily basis which I think ranks as my top find thus far....
how about you? what's your best travel find?
