a room-ful of lace

i found this shop while i was walking around urahara.
i was drawn to the shop because of its wooden entrance.
and it turned out to be the prettiest shop i've been to during the trip.


















the clothes are all nice and pretty...
but what was even more attractive was its interior deco...
~ lots of creamy white candles
~ a really really big bird cage in the middle of the shop
~ lots of fabric flowers
~ very very nice vintage look-alike wooden cabinets, closets
AND
~ lots and lots and lots of aged / distressed rolls of lace!!!
they were randomly placed on the wooden tables, inside the cabinets, etc.... all over the shop...


i couldn't help but started admiring and holding the rolls of lace in my hands...
so pretty and delicate...
each piece of lace was rolled into a bundle and tied with a pretty distressed strip of cloth....


as you can probably guess,
the recurring question in my head was:
"are they for sale?"


i walked round and round the shop until i finally gathered courage to ask
"for sale?"
and
the answer was
"sumimasen..."
................................
................................
hmmmmmmmmmm


i didn't really want to put down the lace i had in my hands....
but i guess i had to...


so instead,
i got myself a slip... with a very pretty lace lining!


and i was given these:
