I was out of town this past weekend in the Twin Cities area and went browsing at the Hmong markets on Sunday before the hub and I headed back to Wisconsin. I found so much cute stuff for such great deals at the Hmong markets, and wanted everything I saw, but settled on these few things:
So first off, I picked up this super cute plastic Hello Kitty contact case. Who doesn't love Hello Kitty? I wear clear contacts (Acuvue) and I also have prescribed colored contacts (Freshlook). I just currently own two of the same generic blue and white contact cases for my contacts. This Hello Kitty case now holds my amethyst colored contacts so now I know which case holds which contacts. This was only $3.
First off, I love anything that has cherries on it. Some people might find it too kitschy but I simply adore cherry themed accessories so when I find them- I just have to have them. I found these cute cherry earrings for $3.75, but when I got up to the register to pay, the cashier said they were 50% off. Even better! I like that the cherries are pearls. So chic. I was wary of buying earrings because I do have sensitive ears and have to wear the nickel-free kind, but these were so cute that I just could not pass them up.
At another booth I found these cherry bobby pins that were decorated with these little rhinestones. I like that they don't exactly match color wise- one's pink and the other is red, but they are still cute enough to wear alone or together. I knew I would use these to clip my bangs out of the way. These were $1 each.
Then I found this wheel of nail rhinestones for only $2 at a little booth that sold Chinese souvenirs. I usually buy rhinestones at the craft store because they are much cheaper than buying from a beauty supply store, but they don't come in a little wheel like this one does and not for this price. Another great find!
Lastly, while I was picking out a souvenir for E, I found this cute plastic Hello Kitty phone charm for $1. I love the adorable pink cherry accessory she has on. So me! But when I was trying to put it on my phone when I was in the car, I noticed that she has some extra yellow paint on her foot. I should have inspected it more carefully at the booth. :(
That concludes this mini haul. I love going to the Hmong markets in St. Paul because I never know what treasures I might find!
Hello Kitty Hugs,
