Little Miu came with us as our "traveling mascot" XD Unfortunately this was the only picture of Miu that we took during the trip, though ^^;; We had planned to snap a quick photo of her in many different places, but in the end she stayed in her little travelling bag for most of the time... It was for her own security though, it was quite crowded on the ship (many people have their autumn holiday now) and there are always annoying drunken people u_u But I do have pictures of our shopping haul!
The main place we always want to visit is Kangadzungel, a big store with all kinds of different fabrics and crafting supplies. We've visited there many, many times, but the selection never ceases to amaze us XD They had one floor full of stuff that was 75% off the prices and combined with the already cheap prices the stuff was basically almost free ^^; On the main floor they also had this campaign that you get 50% off if you have their client card (which we do!), so we got more stuff for cheap too!
Here is our combined haul, though this time most of it is mine ^^;
Sarg wanted to get some felt for making cute cat mascots and maybe some other animals too! The blue polkadot fabric is hers as well. I got the black & pastel fabric for Jade, since it looked like it'd fit perfectly for her pastel goth style :) The crown patch applique and most of the cabochons are for her too, the grey & white one is for Sarg's Umbra. The laces and other stuff are for general use!
Closer look at the smaller things~ Bows, roses, studs, cabochons... The leopard print jewels are for Zinnia and my upcoming Iple girl, Katherine ;3
Besides the sewing/crafting stuff, we also shopped for some other things!
Here's the souvenirs we brought back! Sarg bought that "All Sorts" candy box for her dad, I got the Smarties tube for my brother and "Old Cars" candy mix for my parents. My mom also asked me to bring her that face cream, since it's much cheaper on the ship than in the Finnish stores.
Of course we couldn't resist getting some candy for ourselves too ^^;; We bought all this from a supermarket in Tallinn, the prices were super cheap compared to Finland! I love Kinder Chocolate so I caved in and got two packages... I also thought that those fruit pixels looked funny, so I wanted to try them out. Sarg chose Miisu and Mesikäpp candy for their funny names and pictures XD
Another thing that we bought from the supermarket were these bottles of water in blueberry and peach flavor *o* We bought them last time we went to Tallinn as well and it was great to notice that they were still selling the same products! These taste amazing (as you can see, they're empty hahah), wish we had them in Finland as well ;___;
We also went to a store called Accessorize, they sell jewellery, bags and other accessories. There used to be Accessorize stores in Finland as well, but for some reason all of them are gone now :/ There were these cute animal-themed things (for kids, ahem...) and I fell in love with this little penguin, it's actually a little coin pouch! I also got a bracelet - I can use the animal face charms for making doll necklaces :3
A close-up of the bracelet, it has deer, owl and polarbear faces ^^
Another nice find was this pair of stylish rubber boots! ♥ Rubber boots are quite mandatory during the rainy autumn and I hated my old ones, which were so ugly... I'm really happy to have found these, they're so pretty that I could even go to school wearing them~
Here's what Sarg found :) The Kuromi pouch and Hello Kitty pencil case are from a Hello Kitty store. I still can't believe that I managed to get out from there without buying anything, though I almost caved in with a few plushies... They had dolphin and jellyfish Hello Kitty plushies, can you believe that XDD
She also found a new winter coat (not pictured) and a nice warm scarf to go with it, as well as a bracelet and necklace set! ♥
Overall, it was an awesome trip ^w^ We'd love to go on a cruise to Stockholm (Sweden) at some point too, but that'd probably require us to stay there overnight (which would cost more :/) since there's a lot more to see! Maybe that'll happen during some other holiday~
