All {Crafty} Piggies Should Go to The Market

Whenever I travel, the local market will always be my favorite destination. I blame it on the shopping gene I inherited, and maybe because Markets = Veggies + Crafts. ;P I love it because market shopping is so easy on the wallet, and the fact that you support the local craftsman makes it even better.

I've written about some market finds before, and here's more.
Take a peek into this month's loot and pasalubongs:
They do neon+wood too (my current favorite combo)!
