Okay, it’s probably hard to tell in the tiny format, but that dressing set is a gorgeous little miniature. I bought it while I was on vacation in New Orleans, where I came across a MINIATURES STORE. Nothing but doll houses, doll furniture, and miniatures to go in the houses. I was in love. I could have spent WAYYY too much money in that store and stayed there all day … if Hubby hadn’t been with me (note to self–must go back to miniatures store sometime without Hubby).
I confess–I have a real weakness for miniatures, dating from when I was a little girl. Make anything tiny and I automatically love it. I really don’t know why. There’s just something about that wee little thing that makes me crow with delight. It might even trump my love of, gasp, jewelry. The only reason I don’t have a doll house is I know I’d go nuts with doll stuff. But if I keep buying miniature stuff for Will and Jane, I might as well have a doll house. Right? RIGHT???
So what kind of specialty store is a weakness for you? What kind of store do you have to avoid if you need to save money? Do you go nuts in shoe stores? Accessory stores? Christmas stores? Where do you always end up spending the most money? (And do you think I should get a doll house?)
