Have you started shopping yet? Happy Holidays everyone. I don't do much for decor around here, just have a fake tree with some fun ornaments. I usually go south for the holidays to La La land. I hope to have a great 2013. 2012 was a tough rough year for me, so its going to be interesting to see 2013.
I met this really great family owned business in Milan that manufactures and has traditional and unique hardware for handbags and leather goods. In fact, I liked them so much that I decided to help them to bring their business to the USA market. They have great quality hardware and I like the fact that they are a family run business and they can do smaller MOQ for custom hardware!

Talikud Island in 1996 had a few tiny rustic resorts along the coastline that were mostly thatch roof huts on stilts and were we reachable only by water. The island was covered by dense jungle and primarily uninhabited. One tiny beachfront resort had about 8 cabins, no running water, and no electricity, except for a small generator. The resort was managed by a married local Filipino couple and catered to Filipinos tourists with the rooms renting for 200 - 300 Pesos ($8-12) per night for a small 12 x 12 ft thatched-roof hut on the beach.
To get to the islands, one would take a small ferry from Davao City to Samal Island, the larger of the two islands. Samal island was more developed…
