Some things I’ve snagged lately.
This time I won’t mention the prices because they were all such
bargains that I’m scared that I will get some nasty ass comments
if I do. ;)
The plastic cord purses was a “push present” from mother in law,
she gave me some cash and said “Make sure you do spend this
on something you really want.” And so I did. I didn’t have to pay
any import duty either. :D

Does anyone here know anything about the print on the bag in the
second picture? I would love to know it’s origin/history/meaning.
