Retail therapy

Yesterday I was feeling a bit blue after the news that my friend Alec had passed away. I decided to get out of the house and have a walk around Tai Po. Of course I couldn't resist popping in to a shop or two and wandering through a couple of market stalls. I was absolutely thrilled to discover this collection of 22 people. In early childhood teaching we use them in block play or with the doll house to expose children to a variety of cultures and occupations. Amanda and Manou and you other teachers will appreciate the fact that the whole set only cost $6 AUD. They're a great resource and a great find! (Sarah, I simply must show you the store that they came's such a treasure trove.)
