Treasure shopping

I would say
thriftshopping takes my breath away.
From ''Opnieuw en Co'' in Lier.
But that would not be fair
to all the treasures I find elsewhere...
From all around, from Lier Belgium,
to Richmond California.
Foreign country shopping gives me an extra thrill
although limiting to my suitcase's capacity takes a strong will.
Indian papier mache pot,
card from market in Amsterdam.
Nepali stars.
And then there are treasures from family and friends
things I am happy to take off their hands.
A groovy old school Easter deco-egg
from my awesome moeke.
So it will be more honest to state
that ''Treasure shopping'' and I regularly date.
Treasure from thrift shopping.
