Contest for a Necklace from Nepal: We Have a Winner!


The random number generator has spoken and a winner has been chosen. Congratulations to Christine Patterson, the proud new owner of this lovely turquoise and silver necklace!

A few people inquired about what my final cost was on this item. The vendor asked for 3,000 rupees originally, but quickly dropped it to 2,500 and then 2,000. I only became interested when she hit 1,000 and finally haggled it down to 600 rupees ($8.50 US). 3,000 rupees was quite a mark-up.

Thanks to everyone who entered and who helped spread the word about the contest. I’ll keep my eyes open for something cool to share again soon. Congrats again to Christine.
