A little gift for Mother's Day?
This Sunday 11th March is Mother's Day. If she is around, you might visit or send her a card, some flowers or chocolates. You could if you want to give something a bit different, handmade and unique, visit Jambala Bookshop in Bethnal Green. This small, friendly second-hand bookshop is affiliated with the London Buddhist Centre a few doors down and is stocking some of my little porcelain bowls (£10 each) and some little stoneware dishes (£15 each).
The bowls are for tea or sake but could also be used for condiments, hold a tea light beautifully, or a special gourmet chocolate. The little dish is great for soap, trinkets, jewellery or yes...you guessed it...some treat like delicious chocolate! You might also come away with a book or two!
