Last night I was checking out at Target. The girl ringing my purchases up asked how I was doing, initiated the usual cashier chit-chat, and commented on the magazines I was buying (Domino, Lucky, Country Living, and Mary Engelbreit's magazine).
I admitted, a bit shyly, that I am a magazine addict, but justified my purchase by explaining that it was research for my business.
"Oh, really?" she said, all interested. "Do you mind if I ask what kind of business it is?"
"I sell vintage accessories and decorative items."
"That's so cool!" she said.
And there you had it, I'm official, and now I'm dying to design and print business cards.
Whoooaaaaa, Bessy. One thing at a time. You gotta pay the February rent first!
