Also, I'm so sad that photos weren't allowed in the figurine shop because there were some things I'd have really like to have posted! No amount of search keywords can find a likeness of what I saw in one of those shops, but still I search..
There were so many cute, useless things to "aw" over and tons of curious kitchen wares there. I came home with a peanut shaped pencil sharpener for my sister (with accompanying miniature peanut-shaped eraser) and something for myself that can only be described as a.. piggy lingerie mobile. That, I think I'll have to get a picture of.
