a reminder I certainly didn't need -
that's about the only way I shop!
The only 'malls' I tolerate these days are antique malls.
I don't go to any 'big box' stores
and, as a single person,
I simply don't need the quantity of anything
that I feel the need to frequent
chaotic 'membership' stores.
Nevertheless, this weekend,
I was delighted for the excuse
to frequent my favorite stores -
and frequent them I did!
From 9am - 3pm -
in all the quirky,
what a visual delight!
See for yourself -
Wouldn't this look terrific with a small Xmas tree on the seat?
Not for MY small house though...
I'm content with my purchases...
a vintage blue tablecloth which is perfect
for a new holiday look
in the bathroom
an old wax scene which matches it perfectly
and old paper coasters from England
which I might end up using to make a garland,
or use as name tags on presents.
I haven't decided yet ...
like you've never bought things
you weren't exactly sure
how you'd use them!?
Hey, at less than $4.00,
they were a bargain!
I couldn't just leave them there!
just enough in each store
to feel I was helping out
and treating myself
at the same time.
I just might make shopping
a weekly event!
