Take a break from those frenzied days of shopping for good deals, friends, and enjoy this feast of color and goodness from some of Thrums Books’ favorite places to shop.
“What do you sell, O ye merchants?
Turbans of crimson and silver,
Tunics of purple brocade,
Mirrors with panels of amber,
Daggers with handles of jade.”
“In a world full of wonders and splendours
It is sweet to shop under the sky.
Here are marvellous bargains for you;
For this is the mart of the many
And not of the few.”
“Their baskets measure time
both bought and sold,
woven and rewoven
in the language of trade
Joy to you all as we enter the season that gathers all colors into one.
