Shopping is something I tend to avoid, probably because it occasionally ends in spending money. Which, in my book, is rarely a good idea. That being said, shopping (at least window shopping) sometimes becomes irresistible to me. For example, last week I was waiting for my mom in her accountant's parking lot. I looked to my left, and behold!
The next morning, I took Madison for our jog/walk. On my way home (and probably smelling like a wet dog), I couldn't resist checking to see if the lamps were still there. Amazingly, they hadn't been sold! I spoke with one of the owners, who told me he'd be glad to hold them for me. I decided the polite thing to do would be to shower before returning, so a few hours later (I had to wait for Madison to take a nap) I returned with the money. "How much," you might ask? $15. For both. Total. Yeah, I was surprised, too.
While I was there, I looked around the rest of the shop. They really do have a little bit of everything. All the furniture is what caught my eye, but they also had a big selection of gifts, Christmas decor, collectables, and even clothing! I was tempted to bring this mirror home with me, too, but I'm too tall. Or maybe it's too short. But I should probably take the blame. : )
Am I the only girl that hates to shop? Do you ever get buyer's remorse after purchasing small things like lip balm, gum, or Old Navy flip flops? Have you ever "slept on" a $15 purchase?
