You think you know me but you don’t really know me – there’s something I want to tell that I’m not proud of. I’m an impulsive shopper. As the photos below will explain – I have a weakness when I think I’m getting a deal – books included. So when a friend has only two tickets to an invitation-only publishing house sale, and hands one to me. I went crazy!
So the pile is a bit high (and these don’t include most duplicates and colouring books) But when it’s for books ~ BOOKS ~ wonderful words of wisdom ~ it’s hard to resist! Ok, so I’m not sure how much wisdom is in Martha Stewart’s handmade holiday craft book ~ but I do love flipping through crafting, cooking, and photography, decorating and even wedding books (six years later). There’s many for Holiday gifts and birthday gifts for the next 5 years. I also do enjoy a good novel especially at this time of the year where I can grab a warm blanket and a hot tea and relax reading. ‘Enough About Love‘ is currently at my bedside table. For a buck, who could have resisted grabbing one or ninety seven pieces (I only wish they were all a buck – not the case though).
I’m trying to convince myself that I actually saved a whole lot of money – truthfully though, I know if I never went in the first place – I would still have that money in my pocket.
Are you an impulsive shopper? Do you get sucked into sales? Are books an exception? ;)
Told you I’m a crazy book lady – or more like the crazy sale lady! ;)
(ps. I’m planning on giving one to one of you ;) Stay tuned for update on the giveaway ;)
(pps. my apologies for the poor quality photos – my camera is being repaired from my accident – so my crappy cell phone camera is the best I can do right now ;)
(ppps. personal photos tip: when working with bad photos, turning them to black and white or sepia is a great way to boost the contrast and make them half decent with a ‘creative’ feel ;)
