Just an excuse to get out of the house by my type A husband, who needed a special paintbrush and a new stapler. I had a few things on my shopping list, but had given up finding them. Low and behold I found them in a tourist trap. We wandered in and out of several stores on Main Street, two were so perfumey we turned around and left. Incense, potpourri, candles and who knows what all. I got an instant headache. Me..headachy doesn’t make a happy shopper. To tell you the absolute truth, shopping for antiques is really the only kind of shopping I enjoy. Of course I sent one business an email and the other had a Facebook page…so I left a comment. I think feedback is important.
Far Guy said “Do you suppose they have that many customers who don’t shower?” I don’t know but the stench was horrid. Far Guy thinks that some women must be more tempted to part with their money when the perfume overwhelms them. Not me, I headed for the door sneezing.
The two stores we finally shopped in were normal in regards to being odiferous… Ben Franklin ( a five and dime) and The Trading Post, where they still gift wrap and smile and say thank you.
Then of course we hit the Farm Supply Store where I wandered the pet aisle looking for new stuff to entertain Chance. There might be an odor in that store but at least it is an earthy smell.
We got an inch and a half of rain and it has turned cold, we had a high temperature of 45 F or 7 C yesterday and there is a frost warning out for this morning. Outside projects will be on hold until it stops raining/snowing…snow is possible with freezing temperatures.
