Shopping~ Whats Your Style?

I used to spend at least 2 days a week at the mall... I havent shopped there in 10 years except to park in front of and run into JC Penney's for something waiting at the counter for me...
I think its odd how folks shopping habits change.. Have Yours changed?? I'd love to hear about it if they have..

If you ever visit and see me out shopping- hollar:), yep thats right- just stick your cute little head out the window and yell.. We still allow that here in tiny towns in the south.. It isnt Uncouth its Friendly... I'll squeal, rush too your car with no worry about anyone hitting me or blowing the horn or cursing.. In fact a few other cars may stop and wave at ya too.. Just in case your my 5th cousin , twice removed on my fathers side..
 We take our relatives seriously here in the south and always give them a warm welcome..

  I find myself going , maybe twice a month to a  tiny town, shopping in small obscure shops.. Its convenient ~  its quiet, no long lines and always unique items.

 One of my favorite places is downtown Salisbury NC..  I also try to hit the consignment shops, goodwills and any craft stores I find on the side streets off main.
This tells you more about whats available than I ever could..

  I meet the nicest people in these places.. Most are friendly and chatty and I never wait  for someone to come around that knows everything I need to know about the items I'm interested in..
I know its easy to run in the big famous stores and grab what ya need and rush home but how are we gonna have time to chat if you do that?   We wont be able to walk around the corner and grab some fresh ground , hot coffee and a donut either....
  Our Mom n Pop stores need us to keep them open and I need ya'll to keep me company...

Happy Saturday..
oh baby, it just started to snow.. I gotta run outside and catch some flakes on my tongue..
see ya soon..
