I was going to post the contents of my air freight shipment to China today but then thought better of it. Maybe Mr. Understanding wouldn’t be pleased to know about those darling glass pumpkin lanterns from Illuminations, made in China, being flown back from whence they came. Or the new fancy garbage can and 4 boxes of garbage can liners. Poker chips and Scrabble, along with game guidebooks which arrived in the mail from the Ferdnancy family, were packed in the Igloo ice chest. At the last minute some Restoration Hardware martini glasses made it into the shipment because the packers thought I might need a daily cosmopolitan in China. Mr. U does know about the pre-lit Christmas tree, made in Hong Kong, however. (I have been stockpiling since late November.) Giddy with excitement to see the last of the shipments to leave, I then remembered there are still suitcases to pack. Deflated would be my current state of mind. I never thought I would say this, but I am close to being shopped out. And I still need to purchase panty hose.
Just so you know, all of the above mentioned items were manufactured in the PRC but are not available for sale there.
