Wanted: Adult Supervision for Store Owner with a Shopping Problem February 01 2011, 0 Comments

OK, so I really shouldn’t be left alone to my own shopping devices. We got our first vender (woohoo) and I started plugging away ordering notions for use in the studio and for sale in the store. I was going strong and trying to decide between ordering the dye as a set with a display stand, or ordering it individually and getting separate fixtures before I realized I had been shopping for over three hours! Yes, Three hours! The best part was I had no idea what I had put on the purchase lists. I think they call that a shopaholic blackout right? Maybe a sewaholic blackout? (Won't that be an interesting UPS delivery.) The moral of the story is that I need to be monitored closely while shopping. In fact, I think I need a full time adult-babysitter to watch over me and make sure I’m not breaking the piggy bank already. Any takers?
