Great Deals under $150: Dayak Inspiration

From: Indonesia

What happen if someone who is not fashionable, don't like shopping, joined window shopping challenge?
That's me!! :))

I take this challenge to promote Dayak Handicraft.
Dayak people lives in Borneo/Kalimantan, where i live now. Kalimantan is well known on gemstone and rattan. so it's easy to find good and cheap jewellery here.
Go to Kebun Sayur traditonal market, you can bargain. I got IDR 50.000 for an ethnic stone necklace from its original price is IDR 100.000. IDR 10.000 for each stone bracelet and only IDR 5.000 for earings (and..... guess what? i bought some jewelleries for i sell again hehe.... so, if you want this jewellery just call me  ^_^ )
What kind of scarf, shoes, and clutch that match with those jewelleries?
Mmm... how about Painted Scarf? or embroidery and sequin? Black and White always in :)
(i found the colourful one from soulmateartcraft, the price only IDR 50.000 in Jakarta)
And the last is to find Shoes and Clutch.
Lucky me!, i found this flowery and colourful shoes. and for the clutch i'm back to dayak handicraft, these are dayak's motif, and i please you to pick the colour :))
Thanks

IDR 140.000 for a pair of black flowery colourful shoes
IDR   50.000 for a colourful ethnic beads clutch
IDR   10.000 for cutie round earrings
IDR   50.000 for a ethnic stone necklace
