The Brother Present Dilemma

So I bet you're all wondering what I bought my brother for Christmas?

Well you'll have to wait to the end of this post to find out.

First I want to say... I wish I'd found THIS SHOP earlier!! Called Remo General Store, it basically sells a whole lot of iconic things, based on popular demand. The stuff they sell reminds me of Gowings - all the funny nick nacks. I surely would've found something for my brother there!

If you're still after a last minute present, it looks like they're opening up their warehouse in Surry Hills till 4pm tomorrow arvo. Usually they're just an online store, so I think that makes it pretty special to go inside.

Anyway, as for what I bought my brother... a year ago he bought me a german knife. Someone suggested to me that what people buy is what they would like to receive. Seeing as I'd not really expressed a burning desire for a knife, I reckon it's the case with that present (although it has been helpful, i'm glad he gave it to me!) So, I bought him a special super-sharp swedish knife. Hope he likes it...!

I love that shop! We ran a review of it in our magazine last year.
