On the eighth day of Christmas…shopping in Beirut

A little over a month ago we set out to do some Christmas shopping for family in the States.  We realized pretty quickly that buying and shipping things from Lebanon might not be the best plan.  First of all, basically everything is made somewhere else and then imported here.  Which means we could be buying something that was made in America for twice what you could buy it for at home and then pay more than what it is worth to ship it to the place it originally came from.  Amazon.com became our best friend for Christmas shopping this year! :)  We did buy and ship some things, and so far 3 out of the 4 packages have arrived at their intended destinations… although no longer wrapped and packed the way they left!

  1. I love my jewelry. I wore it yesterday! It was the perfect set for what I was wearing, something that I have been searching for for the past year!
