What stops you in your tracks?

  1. You're in a big department store, grocery store, or in a mall - wherever. Suddenly, you walk by _________, and you just HAVE to stop and look at them/it. What is it?

    For me, it's pocketbooks and wallets. I just HAVE to look, HAVE to have a new one ...

    Photographs or books.

    There is a large wall in our mall with photos from a local photographer.

    I always veer right into a book store.

    Clothes, shoes, purses, etc., . . . I have no interest at all in them.

    That's interesting, I used to be that way with bookstores, but then came the computer and -- I just can't really get into them anymore! Kinda overwhelming or something... or I know I won't sit down and finish a book ...

    I used to love just looking at them and feeling them in my hand, sigh...

    Now photos, yeah, those stop me. I am working at Salvation Army and sometimes people throw them in by mistake. Or, we have gotten a few REALLY old journals, like from the 1800's, with photos tucked inside. You wonder who the people are and what their lives are like.

    I like TAKING pix, and writing ...

    Good post - if there was a grade ... LOL

    BOOKS, definitely. And music and movies...

    There is a store <5 minutes from my house where they have used books, movies and music, which you can buy and also bring in YOUR old stuff for them to sell and get store credit certificates.

    I can only go there once a month or less because I always spend more than I realize. But I love that store... I have gotten some awesome things there and it is fun just to look too. Any bookstore really...

    I'm working at Salvation Army thrift store for now and the $ of course is pretty tight. I shop vicariously thru my customers - as they bring their merchandise through I COVET (yes Father...). I decided tho that Monday I am going to binge and spend $20. LOL

    They have a SLEW of books - nice old smelling books, brand new never-been-touched books ... $.49 each or 10 for $2.99 - mmmm...

    And... they have loads and loads of pockeybooks ...

    I think I must break the stereotype of women . . . I have NO desire to shop for shoes and only have a few pairs of shoes, mostly sneakers. I hate high heels so I don't have any.

    I also do not like jewelry. I rarely wear my wedding ring.

    I love the whole idea of bookstores . . . used, new, whatever.
