shoe per diem, dec 27, 2010 – intermediate days sales

28 Dec

The traditional (at least in Sweden) intermediate days sales has begun. It used to be serious stuff for every shopaholic, always starting early in the morning on December 27 and usually with a 50% reduction of price. These days many sales starts before Christmas and many reductions are just around 30% (which isn’t really sales in my world).

Even if I like a bit of shopping and such I’m seriously concerned about commercialism and economic growth rate that has a devastating impact on this planet and our lives. When I shop I do shop the good stuff, that in theory (and hopefully a bit more than just that) have been produced in responsible ways, for environment and giving the people in the beginning of production chain a fair salary and working conditions. In theory. Thus I try to do better.

But while trying to do better (buying less) I do like a nice bargain. I am a sucker for cute things, colours speak to me, mouth-watering fabrics and patterns, good design makes me starry eyed in want.

So at the intermediate days sales I found some stuff. At some favourite shops. And there were some bags coming home with me. Those bags were then dutifully inspected by liquorice nose loafie and some plush cats.

I’m happy for my finds, but still, I’m working on getting better at not buying things I, honestly, don’t really need. Just want. Me being a trying-to-be-a-better-world-citizen-work in progress.

Shoe per sales day were the red you-know-which-boots for me and some no-name-winter-shoes for M.

    i so get this and so have just completely avoided the sales and the shops. because there’s not really anything i NEED (but no doubt tons of things i want). however, your noa noa bag is very tempting…
