However, what I did buy was some of my favourite Cath Kidston! Given the space and weight restrictions on our luggage, I had to be restrained! Also, our flight was from Dublin to Philadelphia, and a SMALL commuter to Toronto, with limited overhead space. So, I had to be cautious with carry on luggage as well!
I wanted this tin set last time we were in Ireland, but since the kids were with us, we couldn't find any room in the luggage for it!
But look! You open it up and theres not one, two...
But three lovely Royal Rose tins! The colours are so soft too! Three tins which fit into one, definitely worth the space in my luggage! Also, I'm going to empty all the biscuits (cookies) we have in our pantry into these tins, so I will be organizing, and space saving at home too! AH-MAY-ZZZZING!
I've been eyeing this broach on there website, and couldn't resist it! Took no room at all!
A nice little assortment of patches! I'll put them on something!
This is a school satchel for Minnie Me (with the nicer nose, and nicer straighter hair). The patterns on my table cloth with the satchels are hurting my eyes!
I think I can officially open my own Cath Kidston shop now...its a disease!
My oldest daughter asked for this small suitcase. Look at the interior! It definitely had to be carry on, so why let that space go wasted? I filled it with this...
TAYTOS!! If you've been to Ireland, you know and probably LOVE these! Cheddar and Onion is the standard flavour (none of that boring 'PLAIN' for the Irish spud!). My kids LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE these!
|This is Mr. Tayto!|
Besides Cath Kidston, the only thing I bought was TONNES of candy! Whenever I travel, I always look for local/unique candy! I miss the days of small local candy manufacturers in North America, so I troll candy aisles whenever I'm abroad!
I won't show you ALL the candy I bought, just the different types of candy! Lets just say, one suitcase was only candy!
Four boxes of these, some which got smushed!
|These are CRAZY good!|
These were called wigwag in Canada when I was a little girl!
And that that that ah thats all Folks!
