There are a few places from which I need to be dragged or frog-marched so that I don’t end up buying the whole shop. Those are:
- Art Supply Shops (which is evident from this entire project. General rule for artists and art students: always, always avoid taking a credit card to a supply shop. You WILL max it out.)
- Bookstores (which I covered)
- The funny socks corner of a clothing shop (also covered)
- The mug shelves in the home equipment section of a lifestyle store
There are few things that make your coffee/tea/hot chocolate/combinations or variations thereof more enjoyable than a mug with personality to drink it from. This is a simple fact of life, and I tend to collect funky mugs wherever I go. Or I try to, and get frog-marched out by people who know that I should know better.
