Kate, the young girl whom I have now learned is a witch(scary, I know, trust me), showed me around her grandmother's shop today. It was certainly an interesting experience, to say the least… I had never been To a witch’s shop in my life, but this was the last thing I expected to find. I guess I expected cauldrons and spell books, and potions, herbs… maybe a few dead birds and body parts of random animals. But that wasn’t like Kate’s grandmother’s place.

Kate’s grandmother’s shop was quaint… very nice, anddecently decorated. There were herbs and small bottles of random strangecolored liquids on one side of the room, but that was all that I expected tofind. Most of the bottles were labeled with healing words… I guess Kate’sgrandmother was a healer, whatever that means. On the other side of the room,the shelves and windows were filled with trinkets. Pretty trinkets, and cute,but completely useless. Kate said that they were for the tourists, not meant tomean anything other than look pretty on a shelf.

The trinkets ranged from large to small and colorful toblack and white. A lot of them were covered in glitter – completely typical ofany flashy American society, even though we were in Australia. But across fromthe trinkets were little jewelry boxes that caught my eye. They lined oneshelf, and they were so pretty and so delicate, I was afraid to touch them. Onewas particularly beautiful to me, with its gold wiring and purple and silverbeads, it caught my eye instantly. Too bad I ran out of money trying to buy mylunch that day, or I would have bought it…
