I have said for years that I hate shopping, but I went shopping recently and had a great time.
This got me thinking about why. It was an afternoon of walking around a small town downtown and looking in shops without any real purpose. I was with my BFF, so the company was good. :-)
The shops were local, independent and full of unique items. All of which I enjoyed.
So why do I think I hate shopping?
I hate shopping for undergarments, swimsuits and cars. I hate shopping at the mall. I hate walking around with a bunch of other people looking at things that are the same as everywhere else.
I do love shopping at the Feed Store, Farmers Markets, and Fiber Shows. I enjoy shopping for yarn, roving and books. I love shopping at kitchen stores and plant nurseries. So I guess I better re-evaluate my thoughts.
