Yesterday I went to the Third World Bazaar - a huge barn out in Manotick where for 6 weeks in the fall they sell products from all over the world. Clothing, jewelry, housewares, carpets, Christmas decorations, furniture....and everything is reasonably priced and absolutely gorgeous. Knowing shortly I will have a new kitchen to furnish, I went a little nuts with purchases. It didn't help that they have beautiful kilims for GREAT prices. I had to bring a great big one home because the price was too good to pass up ($155) although I have no clue where it will go. I picked up some baskets, a table runner, placemats, a little teak opium table, 3 kilims and 4 kilim pillows (some went to my boyfriend's apartment). Check here for details. In the end, I'm ecstatic with my purchases. They are open one more weekend after this one so folks in Ottawa, you've got time to check it out.
