I love shopping so much, it's almost feels like sport. Generally when I shop I'm either looking for everyday clothes, or something specific like a coat, new sheets or shoes, so a department store can feel overwhelming and crowded when I'm on a mission. I love the feel of a quaint boutique where you get to know the owner who is oftentimes also the buyer. I've made several shop-owner friends because we have similar tastes, or rather, they have tastes that I respect and am drawn to. Do you prefer small boutiques or department for shopping?
