USA, UK, France…Where were the Greek flag phone cases?!

There are some “real shops” too, although I mostly stuck to the stalls.

Note to self: Do not carry a black plastic bag whilst walking around in 35 degree weather!

This was in a really cool, enormous bead shop. Not quite sure why the dinosaur and British phone box were relevant…

My new rings. Everyone agrees that the temple one is super tacky but also strangely nice. I love it and have worn it loads!

Summer 2014 2152

When I was in Athens a couple of weeks ago, I made my annual pilgrimage to Monastiraki, a flea market which is basically Athens’ Camden. It is very touristy, but I always find loads of nice stuff and have a great day (and tan, and sweat out half my body weight – it was so hot!). Everyone is super friendly, especially if you attempt to utilise your rusty Greek (my sister and I got free fridge magnets for our troubles…and asked out… :-p)

More pictures to come…

Happy hump day!
