I haven’t been downtown much this winter but today Betty, Marilyn and I were off on a shopping mission. Marilyn was looking for a “princess dress” for her four year old grand daughter and Betty and I had various other things to buy.
More party items.
It was very hot in the dress shop and I didn’t take any pictures there but Marilyn did find a dress.
On the road back to the market for t-shirts, vanilla and other important stuff!
It was now about lunch time so when we finished in the market we decided to get on the bus and head back to the Golden Zone for lunch and a little more shopping.
Pancho’s on the beach in the Golden Zone was the choice for lunch. We each ordered a nice cold cerveza to quench our thirst and then we were brought a complementary stuffed jalapeno each along with chips and salsa before we ordered lunch. I had seafood soup and Betty and Marilyn a chicken Caesar salad each. Now we were brought a small complementary tequila mixed with some sort of fruit juice and following that a small drink of a chocolate liqueur with cream and ice….. Whewww! Could we actually do anymore shopping now? Don’t be silly….of course we could.
As we were walking down the corridor that left the restaurant we stopped in a jewelry shop that sells silver. I have an affection for brooches for my jackets and especially turtles and frogs. I was looking at this frog brooch and the salesman started at $48. I didn’t say anything and just put it down and kept looking. Now he offered it for $35. I said nothing and just kept looking. I picked it up again and he said ….how about $30 and I put it down. Now he picked it up, weighed it and said “ oh what the heck…how about $25!” Okay. He did all the bargaining and I got the brooch for $25. I guess the silent treatment works. I think it will look lovely on my jacket.
This is a shot of Michael’s, the shop that sells colorful glass, pottery and many other beautiful things. I bought some lovely glasses.
At this point we were all shopped out and it was time to head home.
Another hard day!
