Monday, January 19, 2015 365 Project // Day 17-18 "Weekend Snapshots: Shopping, Markets and Nostalgia"

17th January

On Saturday we went shopping. George desperately needed new pants for work, and new shorts for summer. In Bing, Harris and Co everything was half price, and so we managed to score two pairs of chinos, and two pairs of shorts for $144. Bargain, considering the good quality. 

In the arvo we visited Dairy Bell, an icecream warehouse around the corner from our place. It's been around forever, and when we were kids it was a ritual to visit there at least a few times over the summer holidays. We hadn't been for years, but it was in the paper recently that they've decided to close their shop at the end of February. And so my sisters and I decided to visit one last time. It was amazing to see that absolutely nothing inside the shop had changed. They still had the same pictures, the same flavours, the same signs and the same prices! It sounds kind of ridiculous, I know, but it made us incredibly nostalgic.

On Sunday morning we headed to Prahran market. That place is magical. I think next time we'll go with a shopping list though, because we were a tad overwhelmed by all the options and all the sales and went a little nuts, spent far too much money, and I don't know how we're going to get through all this food before it goes off. But it's a darn nice feeling to have a fridge stocked with beautiful fresh produce. I also bought coconut sugar. I don't really know why, the jar just looked cool. Now I have to figure out how to use it..

When we went for a walk later that evening, we found this wheelbarrow and a 'FREE PLUMS' sign. Don't things like this just warm ya heart a lil?

And lastly, sorry Georgio. But I had to...
