The fact is, while many of the goods were certainly beautiful, the prices were exorbitant. Now, now, you artsy types out there, don’t get your knickers in a knot. La Diva is all about paying people for their work fairly and as a jeweler that has sold at myriad art fairs myself, I know all about the time and love and labor put into items. But, these were just not worth the very high price tags.
This abomination is what the Aussies call a tea pot cosy. It is used to keep your tea pot warm as it brews. As this was hand-knitted and adorned with a rosette, La Diva can only imagine that it’s price was at least $50. To me, that’s about as practical as a S’mores maker from Bed Bath and Beyond and butt-ugly. Pass.
DRAT. She’s right, as usual. Besides, La Diva already bought a nice little “remind-myself-of-my-fabulous-time-in-Sydney” gift for herself, a Rockpool Restaurant cookbook for $130. Boo.
Onto the hot grill they go…
