I usually buy groceries on my way home from school...but sometimes it's fun to have the kids along to do the weekly grocery shopping!
ROCIO, BORDER OF MEXICO
My favorite store is Betsy Johnson. My Pink Angel loves to get funky clothing there. I love their purses and accessories...♥
I DO NOT SHOP in Norway unless it is an EMERGENCY... it is WAY TO EXPENSIVE here... get me to the states & I am a crazy woman with a credit card. Every once in a while I SPLURGE on American food from ULTRA. You are looking at $65 worth of American goodies...
Okay, in the interest of full disclosure, this is NOT my favorite place to shop. That said, fish markets in Sicily are entertaining and lively and certainly worth a stop!
(I didn't take this picture -- I found it on the web!) Attic Treasures was an antique store I worked at while I was in college. It was like working in a museum! I loved it! And the couple that owned it were so knowledgeable about everything under the sun. I really learned a lot working there.
My favorite but dangerous clothing shop. I shouldn't go here for not spending money.
Well, this isn't actually my regular store. It is a corner store in Philadelphia. Many of the families I work with shop at little stores like this. They are very pricey. Laundry detergent that I pay $10 cost $20 in the corner store.
My favourite place to shop? Like in the WORLD? Definitely A-Souq Al-Hamidiyah in Damascus, Syria. Unfortunately I went before I had a digital camera and only took ONE picture ( do you remember those days?) and the picture turned out terribly. I guess I'll just have to go back to make that right. So, until then, here is a good runner up - Al Khan Al Khalili in Cairo, Egypt. Full of life, colour and I'm told that I can buy "Anything I'm looking for at a 'good Egyptian price.'" Ha ha, that is really code for: "I'm going to rip you off because you look like a tourist." Nisa knows. ;) It is lots of fun anyway.
BUCKEROOMAMA, HONG KONG
Book Buddy. I love browsing here.... very dangerous. I think 90% of our kiddie library came from this shop. How did you think I became a VIP member?
This "The Sweet Tooth Fairy." It is a whimsical little cupcake shop just 5 minutes away from my house. It is so charming and delicious! A definite favorite of mine. (I know, leave it to the pregnant girl to name a CUPCAKE shop as her favorite!)
CORNELIA, SOUTH AFRICA
This is our local grocery store. It is part of a large chaingroup and branches can be found all over South Africa.
