Knox BSL

... is open again after having a facelift! I went just before Christmas and found yet another craft book for $2 (generic 70s craft, so have not bothered with a picture) and this Japanese silk scarf, also $2.

It is printed with old-style acrobats and performers:



Check out the musician sitting under the parasol... those super-long trousers were a fashion a few hundred years ago in Japan.


And as if tightrope walking were not tricky enough... this performer is doing it while wearing geta (wooden platform sandals)!


I hope this year is a great one for you and you find some fabulous things! I have another post coming up soon, but look forward to seeing your discoveries first!
