When I have a spare dollar or two . . .

. . . I usually like to spend it at one of these stores.  Look, I’m not a big shopper.  I don’t like to do a lot of frivolous spending.  But given an empty visa and the chance to go crazy, well, then I might have some fun!  So right now, these are my favorites:

  1. Teaism.  I just wrote about it yesterday in fact.  I am, very slowly, going through the shelf of tea that I own.  Only problem is that you find favorites and want to replenish.  I am sworn not to until I drink a lot more of what I have!
  2. Knit Picks.  I recently found this store and I love their yarn.  So soft, so reasonably priced, and such great colors.  Only thing that stinks about it is that it’s an online store.  I wish they had a local location that I could get my hands on stuff prior to purchasing.  Then again, that might not be such a good idea . . . .

  3. I know it’s probably a favorite of quite a few, but I’m going to have to say Best Buy.  I would say Amazon, but that doesn’t really count as it’s the marketplace for everyone.  Best Buy is one that I could max out my credit card with no problem.

There you have it.  The three stores that if you said “you have fifteen minutes, whatever you touch you can keep” and I would be in seventh heaven!
