For three spools of ribbon and a bit of elastic, I paid a grand total of :: drum roll :: thirty five cents!!! The 3 spools of ribbon were a quarter and the elastic was ten cents! I don't know of any other stores other than wonderful thrift stores where you can still buy things for less than a dollar! =) Made my heart happy.
Afterwards I walked over to the Farmers Market in our town. It is held every Saturday under the Banyan Tree. All of the local farms come out and sell their yummy produce. Also a lot of the local food vendors sell plate lunches. They have the yummiest spring rolls and lau lau. I had to be strong to walk away seeing as how we had a fridge full of left overs that needed to be consumed. Don't those carrots above look divine! I got a bundle of carrots, onions, lemons, and fresh ginger for the week.
