I have not really paid much attention to Christmas since the kids grew up but being at the market reminds me that people do extra shopping for gifts during this season. And I can smell the freshly cut pine from the stalls that sells the fresh Christmas decoration. And those chritmas jingles all day long.


I got a few items for people who want to put them in as christmas stocking fillers for adults! Something to remind you to take the pills.



some more black foldable walking sticks and some fun curling shoelaces for people who have problems tying up shoelaces - like me.


Heres a picture of one on my Converse shoe -




and of course, the one thing I've been looking for some time now, a cupholder on the chair-
