Department Stores Vs Independent Boutiques

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, Inside Scoop

A lot of us shop big stores instead of smaller, independent stores just for convenience. But if you want to keep your money in the local economy or get better service, smaller boutiques are usually better.
Here’s why.

The Sanctuary Warehouse Sale

Lately I have been dragging hubby with me to check out new outlets and sales. Not just because I enjoy his company, but because he often has insight into businesses and pricing that I don’t.
His coming along with me also helps stop me from buying.

But this sale I had to shop!

Surprising Deals

Yee Gads!  Our 8-year-old counter top microwave bit the dust. So spoiled is my family, that we had to immediately go find another one.  We really only use it for reheating. But that convenience is too important.

I was not going to be rushed into this purchase. I had to find one at a good price.

Getting the Pricing Wrong

As avid Thrift store and Estate Sale junkies we’ve seen everything from high-end home furnishings to serious junk heaps.

Before we headed out to a couple of Estate Sales on Saturday, we decided to stop into Habitat for Humanity Restore in Atwater/ Glendale area. We are on the look out for a faucet for our utility sink in our garage.

This trip proved that even a great philanthropic charity like Habitat Restores can get it wrong.

Costco Fun

We shop Costco like we’d shop Ralphs or Vons. Stopping in every week or so to pick up specific items. We take a list and usually get in and out as quick as possible.

One of the more fun aspects of shopping at Costco is tasting all the samples being given out. We don’t normally taste ALL of them, just a few.  But last week we made the mistake of shopping in the late afternoon while we were both hungry.
