You'll be pleased to know I am still walking when possible, incorporating my daily tasks into a walk. This morning it was the post office, the dollar shop and the supermarket (all usually driven to).
Along the way today we discovered a towel shop (this is the towel district remember) that sells Shinzi Katoh towels. The shop wasn't open so I may have to return one day.
We also found a pottery studio/gallery/shop just around the corner. It looked interesting. The shop was also closed like so many businesses are on a Monday in Japan so I don't really even know what's on offer. Whenever I am in New Zealand I try to visit the famous Morris and James Pottery. It's about an hours drive out of Auckland but it's well worth a visit if for nothing else but the cafe.
And good news! After many many inquiries and comments about the cuteness of the Happy Party Table set (runner and place mats) it has finally set sail for its new home in Scandinavia. But just last week I found the store has a new supply of the same fabric ... of course I still have on Happy Tote bag in my store.
