Shopping in foreign destinations
Posted on Jul 02, 2013 by
Like many of you, I love shopping in foreign destinations and, for several years now, have used this as an opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts for children and grandchildren. I also keep the bags the gifts come in as many of them are suitable as gift wrapping. My daughter has several evening bags I`ve purchased,
earrings, bracelets, etc. And, of course, kids love T-shirts and bathing suits. For me and hubby, I`ve also purchased canned food products unavailable here.
On my most recent trip to Mexico, I purchased yet another Mexican blanket and managed to get one of those beautiful tin mirrors packed in between the layers and got it safely home. I also bought some beautiful cotton clothing which is difficult to find in our small town. And there is a young Mexican jewelry designer who has a lovely little boutique with beautiful, yet fairly inexpensive pieces which are a fraction of the price of similar pieces I`ve purchased in Canada. While there, we availed ourselves of the beautiful fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood with fish and shrimp sold right on the beach and filleted before your eyes!
