Well, despite good intentions we just didn't have the time to make a quick detour to Kyo! So, I've decided that I'm going to have a to make special trip down to Ocean Grove to spend a couple of hours trawling the aisles of this massive warehouse that carries an unusual mix of Argentinian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese and Moroccan wares. Here's just a taste of what I missed out on (or thinking positively, a sample of things I can look forward to seeing):
And a few of the things I spotted on their site that I particularly like...
A safi ginger jar - beautiful design & colours:
A Chinese hat box with a lovely floral design:
I could perhaps imagine a couple of these storage chests lined up together in my hall - they might make a nice hall table:
