Ok, let’s not start on a negative note. That is not the Three Stone Steps way. But, I find myself waiting a great deal. In fact, I feel as though I’ve been waiting so much that I have the Kinks song in my head…..but, I’m not tired of waiting for YOU, really….I’m just a little tired and I feel as though a lot of waiting.
The Kinks – Tired Of Waiting For You
So, what I am waiting for? It’s noting existential. I’m waiting for a new shipment of messenger bags, wallets, big bags, little bags, and jewelry rolls to make it from Cambodia to Three Stone Steps’ world wide headquarters here in lovely Baltimore, Maryland USA.
…ok. I’ve been back for a few hours under a week now. And, so much I missed here on this Three Stone Steps blog: I missed Chinese New Years and Vietnamese New Years, or Tet. In honor of the holidays, I present this photo from Singapore’s Chinatown. What this has to do with the new year of the Rat, I’m not certain, but it’s a fun and festive and a little scary reminder of a huge holiday elsewhere in the U.S.
I’m home long enough that I’m back to work, and getting low on inventory and waiting to replenish it. In case you’re wondering, I’m very low on the mosquito netting messenger bags. Very few of these are available, and in very select colors. I’m also currently low on the cotton messenger bags with the lovely Khmer pattern. More are coming soon, in some very great colors. Although I hoped, as mentioned below, to find more great handbags, messenger bags, wallets, and scarves from all over the region, all my ordering has come, so far, from Phnom Penh. If you’ve not been, here’s a picture of the Independence Monument there. A really fantastic landmark, although mild confusion at times about exactly which turn off it is for my guesthouse!
This is my last night in Asia. It’s been a relatively quick and relatively eventful trip. I’m excited to get back to Baltimore (well, as excited as one can be when confronted with close to 20 hours of flying….and, in coach!).
Here as some of the new offerings on tap: new bags made from mosquito netting, and made especially for Three Stone Steps. One is specifically a women’s bag, and two others are unisex. There will be a man’s wallet, too. In addition to mosquito netting, some of these items will be offered in a woven black plastic bag material. Just wait until you see them!
I’ll be some of the same great cotton and silk bags, but with some tweaking, and in some fantastic new colors. And, new, fantastic cosmetic bags are coming soon.
Anyway, there’s more of course. But, I have a very early morning flight, and must try to get some sleep.
I promise some photos and more tales of travel soon.
