So you know the last three months? When I was backpacking around South America? I kept you in my thoughts, friends. So much so that I even bought some stuff for you! Ridiculously, at some point between the near the death experiences and the farting donkeys, I purchased some random stuff for one lucky, lucky person.
So what are we looking at here?
I actually bought these at the Witches' Market, the same place that sold the dried llama fetuses I may (or may not) have rubbed your postcards on. There are seven charms here, one for health, love, luck, home, money, career and babies. So I figure you're pretty much covered.
A traditional Andean stocking cap
Complete with ear flaps! Engineered by mountain climbing Peruvians, so I imagine it can handle anything the western world can dish up. Probably made from alpaca and knitted by a tiny, gnarled woman who was chewing coco leaves.
Guys, I'm not actually sure a) how they dye these seeds b) how they drill holes in them c) what kind of seeds they are. But they made it through customs so I think we're okay! This necklace is wicked adorable, long enough to wear in one layer or two.
Are you keen? If you'd like like these things for your very own, just leave me a comment detailing what you would name a pet llama. If you were lucky enough to have one. Winner will be chosen at random next week. Good Luck!
