Thailand (Wednesday Shopping)

We had to hurry back to the resort by 3pm so that we could shop at the Artisan Bizarre that Lewis' company set up for us. They bring in local people to sell items that they make. This is the second year that they have had the shopping and people seem to love it. I like getting to pick out what I like instead of having someone pick out something that they like for us. We only had a few moments to shop as we got there just in time for it to end.

We get play money to trade for items and then the shop keeps trade the play money in for real money from Infor. Here are some of the items that we got:

I picked out these wooden vases. The are painted and then the flowers are carved into the paint so that the wood can show through. I love them.

Lewis picked these guys out. It was the first thing that he saw and he loved them. I like them too but once I picked them up I walked away. They were kinda pricey plus they weigh a ton. I could not figure out how we were going to get them home with the weight limit. Well Lewis liked them so much that he decided I could figure it out, and he bought two. I really do like them now that we have them at home, they will look amazing on his desk.

I also bought the girls bracelets and hair bows. I got myself a necklace and earring set, a dress (as I was running out of clothes), and a table runner and matching vases for my parents. We bought the boys small Buddha statues that matched their personalities. They also had lots of rugs, bed coverings, and pearls but I really did not want to spend the money. Now, I wish I had spent more and brought more back with me.
