Yamato Shrine Sale

I went to my first shrine sale yesterday and it was heaven! They are basically Japanese versions of flea markets/antique markets, usually held around a shrine, although this one didn't seem to have a shrine anywhere nearby. They sell all kinds of things from kimonos and obi to old scrolls and baskets, often at discounted prices if you are willing to forage. There was an endless amount of juicy stalls selling the most amazing Japanese artefacts and fabrics and it was heaven. Becky and I went a bit wild, but came back with some amazing finds.
