By now, perhaps you've figured out that when it's my turn to write the weekly blog post for The Crafty Lady, I try to come up with a topic that ties in with the yarn we're featuring for our Super Special Sale.

This week, our yarn selection inspires me to ask you:

How do you shop?

Are you a Purposeful Purchaser?
  • You shop with a list;
  • You know what you're looking for and won't go for a substitute unless it's a) close to what you need; or b) is on sale at a great discount.
  • You make your buying decision, pay for the item(s) and GO!

Are you a Browser?
  • You wander into the store without specific purchase plans;
  • You browse the wares, observing colours; touching textures; pausing to check prices and sizes.
  • You circle the space once, twice, maybe three times, returning to hover closely over the item(s) that have grabbed most of your attention.
  • Time to you either make note of what you've seen for a later visit (to buy) or you decide to buy then and there, pay for the item, linger...
  • You leave, happy, only to return for another look...
In reality, I think shoppers are "six of a dozen, assorted", as my maternal grandfather was wont to say.  That is, we're all "a bit o' this and a bit o' that".  Sometimes we go shopping with a list, with focus, and with limited resources.  Other times?  Well...perhaps we have a gift card to spend, or a bonus for work well done, an income tax refund or...just more money at the end of the month than we expected.

That means that we can (for at least a short time) abandon Purpose and Practicality in favour of a bit of Whimsy, Spontaneity or Impulsiveness.

For one sweet shining moment we can live in Camelot...and be drifters in the Land of Creativity...

So who are we at The Crafty Lady to stop you in this process?!
