In light of us planning a trip to Japan next March, here are a couple of shots of fabulous vintage kimonos that my friends picked up in the kyoto markets at their last trip. I feel blood rushing to my head and adrenalin set pumping whenever I think of the bargains to be had in a foreign land. Will be going with empty suitcases!!! When I get home, there will probably be not enough wall to hang ‘stuff’ on. If only we can buy a new house with long, long, long white walls.
