shopping for homewares, fashion, art, objects, dream shopping in Bali
"Just back from a beaut Bali break where I met the dynamic Marilyn (www.retailtherapybali.com) who took me under her expert wing for a girls day out. And what a divine day it was! (especially the Seminyak area) Bali is a shoppers dream however the choice is so large that it can be an overwhelming nightmare and Marilyn's personalised shopping service is a wonderful way for first time visitors (like me) to get an overview of what's available. She has extensive expertise in retailing both in Australia and internationally and it shows! Her service was tailored to suit my interests and budget, so there's no being dragged around to see the usual tourist traps. Whether you are shopping for homewares, fashion, artworks or want an interesting day out to experience artisans
(e.g a French trained perfume maker) who you would never find otherwise, or if you just want to get to know your way around the many restaurants in the Bali food scene - Marilyn knows where the best buys and most interesting places are. This really is a personalised service and Marilyn did her homework on my needs very thoroughly which resulted in a well planned, fun, informative day that was just like shopping with a girlfriend!
So, if you want to put your best "retail therapy foot
forward" I would recommend a day out with Marilyn as an essential part of any Bali experience. "
