Nova Scotia shopping

Lynn relied on one of my favorite sources of inspiration for this post card - a travel magazine. The image is from the Saa Paper Factory in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a city where Lynn studied abroad years ago (I should note that the drawing was not tilted on the card - this is a factor of crooked scanning). The card reminded Lynn to tell me about shopping in Nova Scotia, where she saw handmade cards from Chiang Mai selling for $35. The price took Lynn by surprise, remembering low Thai prices, but apparently was not so surprising since Nova Scotia prices were consistently high for Lynn's budget. Too bad, because she was yearning after Etsy-like jewelry - an itch I felt recently while in Sri Lanka at Barefoot in Colombo. Luckily, Asian prices are easier to swallow. :-)
