The Shopping




Surprisingly I did actually return to Canberra after a weekend of shopping, eating and laughing in Sydney. We went to two of my favorite shopping "arcades" ever: the Queen Victoria Building and the Strand. Both are old fashioned buildings with fantastic specialty shops (but, unfortunately, the prices are also fantastically high). The 'cakes' in the picture are actually soaps and body creams in Lush. The red plastic bowls and jewelry are at Dinosaur Designs which I'm sure you'd love, fauxcouture. I loved the dress shop with Japanese fabrics, and the Scandanavian clothing/natural brush (?) store Funkis. And in the left of the picture of the Strand (the multi-level shopping centre) you can see your classic hip young urban Aussies haha.
