I know the holiday season is officially starting, not because Thanksgiving (and the knock-down, drag-out tearful fest that is my extended family's gathering) is only 6 days away, but because I went to an open house at a local shopping center last night. There was fudge, carols played on the bagpipes, and sales, and I bought my first Christmas gift. Only 10 more to buy!
There was also a post on Risky Regencies asking about our Christmas wish lists, and I came up with some great, Janeite stuff for mine:
A Jane Austen action figure at The Writers Store (http://www.writersstore.com). they also have a Shakespeare action figure!
The Jane Austen Little Thinker doll at my favorite online shop, The Unemployed Philosophers Guild (http://www.philosophersguild.com ) . My Frida Kahlo and Emily Dickinson dolls want her to join their unholy sorority. (There are also Shakespeare and Gandhi Little Thinkers)
And at Bas Bleu (http://www.basbleu.com), they have not only a Pride and Prejudice board game, but a beach towel printed with the first few paragraphs of P&P (thanks for pointing this out, Megan!)
Happy shopping, everyone! :)
