Sandfly Variety Store - Another Happy Customer

A few days ago I had the opportunity to stop by the new Sandfly Variety Store recommended by (I think) Socks and Sandals. It's where J. C. Clements Furniture Store used to be.

Now, understand, I am not a shopper by nature. In point of fact, I despise shopping for anything but food or plundering in a junk store (usually euphemistically called an "Antiques Emporium or Mall"). In short, the GDP is not going to rise or fall on my purchases.

But I hate Walmart (or Wal-NOT as I like to call it) so I was intrigued by the idea that someone of an entrepreneurial nature would go head to head with the Great American Satan, especially right around the corner.

So I stopped by and checked it out. About twenty minutes later I had examined everything that I might find of interest. I skipped the toy section and the bridal shower section but I hit every other department and emerged with the following: two net bags of black river rocks for a ceramic planter; a ceramic leaf shaped incense burner that because of it's design would capture the full length ash; and a combination nail brush that also, when turned over, could scrape the dead skin off the soles of your feet or clean the ring from around your toilet...or both. Total cost: under $5.50.

They were glad to see me, checked me out quickly, hoped I would come back, and were genuinely nice people. They seemed to know everyone in the neighborhood who wandered in and went out of their way to help.

I'll be back. I have already seen my sister and brother-in-laws Christmas present - inexpensive kitchen towels that will set me back less than $5.00 and a fitting addition to the little ceramic hors d'oeuvre plates (4) I found for $3.00 at the Humane Society Thrift Store last year.

You should go!

I believe what you posted made a lot of sense.
However, think about this, suppose you were to write a
killer post title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean "Sandfly Variety Store - Another Happy Customer" is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo's home
page and note how they create news headlines to grab people to open
the links. You might add a related video or a pic or
two to get people interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

I tend not to drop many responses, however after browsing through
a lot of remarks on this page "Sandfly Variety Store - Another Happy Customer".
I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of the responses appear like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to follow everything new you have to
post. Could you list of every one of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
or linkedin profile?
