Confessions of a market junkie!

image

Coming from Brazil where the merchandise is far less authentic, I went a little crazy when I got to Peru. From traditional stripped gringo trousers, the cutest fabric backpacks, alpaca jumpers, blankets, scarfs and socks to pretty patterned purses, quirky leather handbags and funky footwear; I’ve become obsessed. I mean how can I not? Everything is so awesome. The bright colours. The cool textiles. The unbelievably soft baby lama apparel. The unique patterns. The authentic essence. I love it all and I can not get enough.

So I’ve gone passed denial and reached acceptance now, because since landing in Peru I haven’t managed to walk through a single textiles market and not buy a thing. After holding back my shopping addiction for 10 weeks, I’ve well and truly had a relapse- now I have no control. So yes, I’ve become a market junkie.

I’m not quite sure why or how I’ve gone back to embracing my inner shopaholic; it’s not like I’ve been able to walk into Zara, Topshop or Selfridges in the past 3 months. Nevertheless, I now have two pieces of extra luggage filled with South American goodies and I can’t wait to get home and utilise them all. I’m actually quite looking forward to summer in the UK. With less than 3 weeks to go; bring it on!
