Happiness unlimited

This funny little shop is in Rondebosch on the side road going past the police station and the end of the Anglican church property, but you can see it from Main Road.  I am always attracted to that Indian-style of bunting that hangs across doors and windows, but I know from going into shops like that regularly that it’s very expensive. Which is as it should be – it’s all exquisitely hand-embroidered with shisha mirrors and must take months to stitch.

This particular shop also stocks a variety of party things, masks, hats and scarves, and dress-up stuff.  I once bought a rainbow-striped velvet-covered stetson there for a friend’s rainbow party.  Hmmm, somewhere there’s a picture of me in that hat waving a marguerita around and trying to do the macarena!

But I digress. Happiness unlimited – what a marvellous and absurd and crazy concept.  Would that we could all achieve it.  (And what a great name for a shopful of glitzy Indian bling with my name on every single item.)
