And so we come to the end of May, and to the end of my self set challenge to only buy recycled or handmade items. I have to say I feel pretty proud of myself, I only slipped up once (and that was to buy a Zooey Deschanel T shirt from teefury, but don't judge until to see how awesome it is).
In a fitting end to Hand(may)de, Lovely and I went to MarkIT designers market at Fed Square; I would describe it as the little sister of Finders Keepers, and although they had some great stuff, there was lot less of it and a lot more crowded, whereas FK is more towards the opposite. There was a lot of stuff I had seen before, but I did get to buy a beautiful print from When You Escape, which I was and still am psyched about (I fell in love with her work at Finders Keepers earlier this year, but was sadly lacking in funds for pretty things).
I had a lovely Sunday today wandering around markets, eating little danish pancakes, looking at paintings and just enjoying his company. Makes me realise what I was missing by working on a Sunday for all those years.
