Tinkers Toy Shop ~ Canggu, Bali.

Just on your left before you get to Splash Waterpark Bali, Bounce Bali and Strike Bowling Bali, you will find Tinkers Toy Shop at the Canggu Plaza. This cute little hut is jam packed full of costumes, books, kites, mobiles, snorkle and googles, pool floaties, puzzles and so much more. They also stock some stunning wrapping paper for gifts as well. Pop in if your out this way and check it out. We shopped up a storm ( as per ususal ) and got some mini lego stuf, bows and arrows for the boys and a weird little skelton coffin thing for all of Roccos treasures etc. My boys ( and I give it the thumbs up ) . Its about 15 minutes from the top end of Seminyak xxxx

Oppps I have been shopping once again ……

Ok so I may have gone a little bit overboard at the pretty hand painted basket shop the other day, it’s was fun getting this lot back on the motorbike…..in the rain…… But gee it was worth it. I paid about 200 000 rupiah for 7 different sized baskets. The do fit into each other for packing. To get them through customs, spray them a lot with a bug spray and bang them on the ground to get all the bugs off. Declare them and all good. The perfect gift wrapping which can be used to store all kinds of stuff too. These are from a small shop on Jl Legian, about 300 meters and the same side as the Bintang supermarket if your heading to Seminyak. You will find them at markets and especially on the way and up in Ubud. XxxBaskets

 

A new little clutch, I just HAD to have ….

My name is Melissa and I am a shopaholic, or as I like to think I keep the global economy going. This is my new clutch ( larger than a purse/wallet, enough to carry my phone, mozzie spray, suncream, cash, scooter key, yet small enough to store in my scooter seat as I am paranoid about bag snatches) I now have a quiver of wallets, clutches and tote bags made with this bright embroidered fabric. What I am confused about is if they are actually imported from Thailand to Bali or are they Bali imitations of the Hmong style of embroidery? Does anyone know ? Either way I love them and you can get purses starting from about 80 000 Rup, clutches from 150 000 and large tote bags from around 320 000 in the Bali market stalls.hmong

Bali Souvenir ( its just sugar sticks but Uber Cute)

HOW cute is this box of sugar sticks ??? Yeh I know Sugar is so passé right now. ( I am yet to quit sugar), but how cool would you be taking a box of this back for someone who still LOVES a teaspoon in their tea or coffee hey ? I found these at Coco Supermarket for only 13.500 Rupiah ( about $1.30 AUD) on Jl Kayu Aya, Seminyak. You can probably get it in any supermarkets across Bali. (I hear also possibly at Carrefore, Bintang and Tiara Gatsu in Kerobokan).

Lulu Yasmine ~ My Favorite boutique.

For several years now, my favourite go to boutique for any special occasion items has been Lulu Yasmine. It must be the mix of beautiful boho chic and femininity that draws me in, matched with the quality of the clothing with the softest and most delicate silks and lace. Since the development has marched north so has Lulu Yasmin now with her elegant Flagship Store located just near the entrance of the W Retreat on Jl Petitegnet.. I have been addicted to Pinterest and found myself repeatedly pinning delicate lace tops and wanting them to match with worn cut of denims, as I wondered in due to being notoriously early for my massage next door at Amo spa, I ohhhhh and ahhhhhed as this stunning silk top caught my, eye. I tried it on and even with no make up and the sweatiest helmet hair, I instantly felt beautiful and said this is it the top I have been longing for. Armed still with some birthday money to spend, I almost skipped with glee to my next appointment. Like Lulu Yasmin on Facebook and see her new website. http://www.luluyasmine.com/

Triette Store ~ Jl Batu Belig Bali

Triette Store is a tiny bit of shopping heaven with the prettiest home wares, jewellery and baby clothes you really need to pop on up and have a browse. I brought the cutest batik shopping bag and resin Koi candle holder and could have done some serious credit card damage. Oh but *sigh* if I only had a baby girl they have the sweetest little girl jewellery, which reminded me of when my Opa and Oma would return from Holland with the daintiest silver jewellery for me which was very similar. Whilst checking out the rest of the little gems on the best street in Bali you need to add this one to your list. It is just near Coco and Ginger, Bathe and Bambuku on Jl Batu Belig which is about 10 minutes from seminyak at the end of Petitenget turn towards the beach ( left and follow it down to the beach.

Miss Debby ~ Fixed Price Bali Trinket Shop Legian

If you are after some Bali trinkets perhaps a polyester Spiderman costume, monster hat, skull Tea light holder, stubby holders, Bintang towels ? pretty much all the stuff you see in the markets and don’t want to barter then perhaps head to Miss Debby. Her shop is fixed price, she has a small shop front which she prefers you go and ask to be taken around the back however we just wandered straight around no problems. The shop front is on Garlic Lane in Legian or Jl Sahadewa and two shops down you will see a lane way head to the end and walk through the elaborate arch way. It’s really neat, there is a cool breeze, it’s all fixed prices so no need to barter. Have fun and shop up a storm ! xxx
