Pashmina Mecca


This is the farm's Women Market accross the street from where I work. I see different stands there every day, kinda like a flea market and a lot of people stopping by. For some reason, I never got the urge to stop by there but today during my lunch break, my friend and I went there coz we were bored! I was in for a surprise. They sell Pashminas for $5.OO a peice! Yes, you've read right $5.00. The ones that have a design are $6.00 and the extra extra large ones that you can drape around you, even decorate your walls with lol, are $7.00/each no kidding! I don't know about you but I used to buy my Pashminas for $12-$20 a peice. And they have so many different styles, designs and colors. Also if you're buying a 100 pieces, they will sell it for $4.00 a peice. Needless to say, I will stop by there more often!

These are $5.00/each

There are $6.00/each and they have tons of designs and colors

Iraqia,
Do you live in DC? It is on 7155 Wisconsin avenue, Bethesda MD 20814. Its about 2 blocks from the Bethesda Metro station accross from Starbucks. The lady told me she was gonna be there on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays from 9:00am to 6:00pm till December. Then she's going overseas and coming back in March.
