Done your holiday shopping yet?
I found this shop in Paris. It’s my idea of a bad dream. Retailers in the U.S. love to rearrange their stock so shoppers have to wander around aimlessly as they try to find all the stuff that was down this aisle or that the last time they were in the store. Around here there are often clerks who willingly help customers find things and they’re often even cheerful. That helps. But it can be maddening when you’ve got a list that’s carefully drawn to save time and then all that time’s spent wandering through the various departments where the item might be found…if indeed the store carries it. Two more shopping days ’til Christmas. Ho ho ho.
