Portal 108: Something interesting for most people.
Here you can buy women's clothes, jewellery, gifts, Buddha figures of different types, funky shoes for both adults & children that would be perfect for the beach & in a fantastic range of colours. So you can see it fits into too many categories of shops so I've had to select, "other" rather than a specific type of shop.
The two ladies who run Portal 108 & great people, down to eath both with a good sense of humour. Genuine individuals.
What to buy: Well for me it was a lovely bracelet that I bought for my wife for Christmas, but I can't tell you any more about it because quite possibly she (GeminiKerry & I see she's online now elsewhere in the house - ah the beauty of wireless networking with the broadband)will visit these pages so I can reveal all after Christmas, but not before.
I think you can tell from my descriptions above that I was rather taken with the shoes. If you click on my photo you will be able to see some of the shoes that were on display out the front of the shop & some on the front fence. I would have pair a pair each for my wife & me * also a pair each for my twin girls, but there just wasn't enough space in the luggage for all that.
What to pay: Probably no more nor less for what they have there than you would for comparable items elsewhere

Sarah was like a kid in the candy store when it came to the bath and massage oils :)
