How are you? Did you have a good day?, I hope so, I did a little retail therapy, we all know all about it. The sun was shinning, the wind was blowing, and the temperature was very pleasant so, it was the right day. I went to a small mall with valet parking, o la la, are you jealous?? Well, I used to hate going to this mall, until I found out that they had valet parking for my car, otherwise you had to pay for the parking, across a little way, they have a huge Bloomingdales, and Macy's mall, you don't pay for parking there, and 12 minutes from my house they have a huge new store called Norstrom(Ophra loved their shoes they have millions of shoes. I don't go there. Well back to the Chestnut Hill Mall, now I like it, oh well I drove 20 minutes. You understand that I say 20 minutes, equals to one hour or sometimes two hours, here, all you need is a little accident, a game, or repairs of the roads. They are always repairing roads. This is why for me a trip to the city is a big big thing, I get ready for the road, you never know. four lanes into one lane, or three lanes into one lane, the tunnels flooded, the tunnels are closed, and on and on and on.
The interesting thing about this small mall is that they have three of BLOG LAND favorite stores all together, isn't this amazing?? so in one hour, your therapy is over.
Store No. 1 PB the cheapest of them all, I took some pictures and drool over the stuff, I sat on one of their couches, and dream, dream, dream, the nice guy started talking to me about my purchases, he wanted me to get some sand for my candles, and shells, there were on sale, well he didn't know I can get free shells, sand and all, but he wanted to sell sell sell, he followed me, and I took pictures, well, he was going to make a sale, however, I don't like sales people in the stores unless I can buy something, and really I wasn't impressed. Now the next two stores, nobody follow me, or care if anybody was buying, it was very nice and relaxing. Interesting eh? very different salespeople, I did ask if the RH tables are made in CHina, they said some of them, but avoided the questions like a plague, I don't buy things made in China, I'm trying to help our economy in my little way.
