Interesting Souvenirs

I love walking in markets and quaint little curio shops whenever I travel. It’s amazing what little trinkets you can find in the dusty corners of those shops. My mom loves that too and over her many trips have carted back lots of pictures, little plates, dusty little salt and pepper shaker sets that looked wonderful when she cleaned them up and a big table lamp with some intricate native carvings. Looking for these stuff needs an eye and some imagination as it may not look very attractive when sitting dusty and forlorn in a dark shop. But with a little bit of cleaning or touching up, it can be a very interesting centerpiece indeed. So do keep your eyes peeled whenever you travel. Someone’s junk could end up being your treasure!
