I got my first paycheck on the 25th. I decided to get my sisters something that will last for a long long time to come. To remind them of me. I decided to buy them tradition wooden boxes that women keep jewellery in. Slightly smaller than a sadooqcha and slightly larger than a dibba. Something that is traditional and something that is free of time.

First we went to all the extremely expensive traditional handicraft stores in the more upscale parts of the city where prices reflect the neighbourhoods not the objects. We saw everything and made a list of what to buy. Then I went to Zainab Market. I spent four hours there and got excellent bargains on some very very unique, uncommon and rare handmade jewellery boxes.

So, for all of you out there, if you need handicrafts, ZAINAB MARKET!
