I went shopping and I didn’t buy…

This past weekend, the BF did his pre-learner’s bike course and seeing my mother was busy, I took the time to exercise via window shopping.

I get a LOT of satisfaction from taking snaps of things I like.  I don’t need to buy them.  Just browsing the items, and then sharing them is enough.  For local readers, I’ve included the vendor in the captions, should you be a buyer not a browser 😉

So thats everything I didnt buy. And I didn’t even get any good fatty snacks (there were none around).  I did get blisters from my shoes, but nothing I can’t handle.

Do you window shop, or is it just too hard?

  • Love window shopping! This post made me think of lots of places I haven't been in ages, like lighting stores. My favourite is Builder's Display Homes. Love seeing furniture, decor, garden and plans all in one spot.

    • No. Don’t do it now. I either want to have it. Or I do other things with my time. (Like waste time on social media.) I use to window shop and browse but have since broken the shopping-as-pastime activity. (Standing tall in my moral superiority – raising my moral failure with cluttered bathroom.)

    • Oh yes, I loved the display units when they existed before some of the new buildings here. Though so tiny!

  • Nice things! I think of myself as never going out specifically to window shop, but that's not true. I like to see new stores. There's a new Urban Outfitters in town that I'm looking forward to seeing. Rom made a special trip to see the new Frank & Oak, and I made a special trip to see the new StrucTube when it opened. When I am shopping for something particular, I do let myself browse as well, so I usually know what's new! And I do window shop when I am travelling / on vacation.

  • Like Dar, I usually only window shop on vacation. Not too many interesting places to window shop around here. I try to avoid window shopping on the internet because it gets me in trouble since I can often find a coupon code or free shipping offer that makes my purchase even more tempting!

    • Hmmm – I guess I window shop as it gets me out of the house? I figure it's better passively wandering than couch imprinting! On the other hand, I seldom if ever window shop online…
