Shopping in Marrakesh is always wonderful fun.'
You can pick up the little bowls with the calligraphy design in the souks. They come in lots of colors. The tiles are handmade by a craftsman whose workshop is between the rue riad Zitoune LaKadim and rue riad Zitoune djedid.
The painter Mortesi's shop is next to the mellah market.
But since I'm in New York, I won't be able to pick up
any of these treasures before Christmas.
Next best place for unusual and lovely presents and accessories from all round the world is Novica's website with super women's silk scarves ( like the ones they sent me above)
and also men's accessories like cuff links and walking sticks. Leave a comment below and I'll put your name in a jar and pick a winner to receive a $100 gift certificate from Novica. Drawing next Saturday November 5th.
(Novica are also looking for people who would like to host parties featuring all their fascinating products. Go here to find out more details.
