A picture of my purchases next to the square sign:
The lovely bouquet of flowers I bought for only $5:
E waiting to go home:A lot of people were selling hand made jewelry and I fell in love with some of the charm bracelets that one lady made...but I made myself put the $25 bracelet back because I hardly ever wear bracelets anyways. (Even though, with that bracelet, I could convince myself that I would.) I have to practice self control. lol.
What did make it home with me was relatively cheaper than that beloved bracelet.
Here, a feather hair extension. Have you given in to this trend yet? I was contemplating it and when I saw this at a vendor's booth, I decided to give it a try.
I had to take these pictures with flash so that the detailing would show up. The little black comb is not very secure in my own hair, so I might have to add a bobby pin to make sure it doesn't come undone. I clipped it behind my ear so that it just kind of peeks through. I kind of like it- but I am just worried that it will fall out. This was purchased for $6.
Next, I bought these hand-made Swarovski beaded earrings. These were two for $6, but the lady selling them noticed that I was also Hmong, so she gave them to me for $5.
I am giving the green pair to my mom. I love how dainty they look.
Later that day, I took E and my nephew M back to the square to play in the splash pad there. Kids were running through them with their clothes on, but I was prepared and had them come in their swimming trunks. There was also a BMX bike show, where kids were doing crazy flips off of ramps. E and M really enjoyed the awesome tricks these guys were doing.
And then my faithful summer sandals broke while I was there. Very sad. I had to walk barefoot back to the car. lol. These went into the trash when we got home.
I am trying to squeeze the most out of these last summer days before school starts. E will be going into second grade this year, so I am a little bit sad that he is really all grown up. :(
Broken sandals & hearts,
