We have found clothing made for Americans.
We found there here.
In *hushed whisper* Thailand.
And do you want to know the ironic part (because ya'll know how much I love irony)?
It's at a mall we frequent every. single. week. No joke!
You see, every Sunday after church we stop and eat at a place called Food Land (it doubles as a grocery store... weren't they smart!) Normally we'll eat lunch, grocery shop, and go home. Boring, I know.
But today that routine changed a little bit, oh yes it did! Our driver -aka Bro. Tom - is out of the country so we winged it by taking a taxi to church and then taking a taxi to Food Land. Well, after we were done eating lunch (yummy cashew nut chicken!), we decided to stroll through the four-story mall and see what wonders we were missing out on.
Oh yeah, we were missing out alright!
On the second floor, Krinny stopped to look at a long-sleeved shirt for her granddaughter. For 49 baht ($1.50) she decided that was super-cheap enough to buy for the little girl. Before you knew it, we were raking through the bins and bins of name-brand, quality stuff that would be super-expensive in the States.
How do I know? Because the price tag had two different prices: one in baht and one in dollar. For instance, a shirt that I picked up today from Old Navy? $24.50. The price in baht? 149 - $4.28. We rummaged through the bins for two hours, but that was a small price to pay considering (a) we found something that actually fit us (b) the price was beyond right. I was really excited that one of my finds was a shirt for $1.00! We feel that was just an extra blessing from the Lord today and I got out all of my "gotta go second-hand/bargain shopping now!" urges:).
The only sad news is that Carolyn missed it. But no permanent damage done! After all, we go to this mall every single week:).
