    “made with unaltered rain
    captured from the highest
    mountains” … Oh, yes please!

    This place is amazing. It has a coffee and wine bar in the center and clothes and jewelry everywhere else. I really wanted a toe ring, but it was $8. At night, they have live bands and karaoke. And they also offer yoga classes through the week. One of the saleswomen has only lived in the states for 3 years; she is a beautiful Italian woman who married a military man. I really wish I lived there; I would so staple myself to that store. 🙂

    “Thank you for choosing
    us for your enlightenment.” … This is so ironically funny. As if you could buy enlightenment and have it wrapped up neatly. Love it.

  2. Patchouli ? do they even make it anymore. Lawd you bring back memories. A wonderfu wonderful trip down memory lane an oh so excellent write!

  3. I liked the same, Mark, about the unaltered rose water for her bath!!! This sounds like a hippie haven for sure!!! Nicely done!

  4. You make it easy to see why it’s “Her Favorite Shop” Well Done, Mark !!

  5. the supreme salesmen–selling words and peace

  6. Sounds like a fun little bohemian experience. I feel the sense of bodhi without even stepping in.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
