Today Leo's Rabbit discovered a superb Golabetoon Craft Shop and Art Gallery located within Outlajan Market at the Grand Bazaar in Tehran. Its outstanding window display with a vast selection of bespoke handicraft immediately caught Rabbit's eager eye, and he promptly entered the shop. Exceptionally friendly owner greeted him warmly with a big smile inviting for a browse around the tastefully arranged shelves. Rabbit found himself surrounded by a unique collection of traditional Persian art and souvenirs. He was especially impressed by the spectacular hand-painted pottery and ceramics and exquisite jewellery crafted with a great attention to detail. Leo's Rabbit could not resist temptation and bought a pair of distinctive metal-ceramic earrings for his friend. He was mesmerised by quality leather and kilim handbags, but could not decide which one to choose. Please don't forget that Leo's Rabbit lives in MamaMus's handbag, so selecting a new one feels for him like buying a new house. Not an easy decision indeed!
Although Rabbit did not acquire a new 'house' for himself, he left the shop very content with the whole experience. He thoroughly enjoyed the authentic feel of Golabetoon Craft Shop with its delightful, inspirational handicraft.
Leo's Rabbit 'lives' in my handbag and he travels with us everywhere we go. He has pictures taken at various locations, tourist attractions and places we visit. As a part of this blog we will describe Leo's Rabbit Travels to share our personal experiences from these visits. Hopefully couple of people (apart from us :-) ) will find it interesting and may even feel encouraged to visit one of Rabbit's destinations.
