Like New Year's Eve for drinkers, Black Friday is amateur day for shoppers. We had no intention of going anywhere close to a mall, but given that my sister the professional shopper is visiting, we had to do something! We have a great local stand-alone cooking store, Savory Thymes, where I always find something to buy. DH had recommended another cooking store, The Country Gourmet, up in Foscoe that I had never checked out. As an accountant, I have to say I found the place completely unbelievable. Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fabulous inventory, but I can't imagine they can earn enough profit to earn a reasonable return on investment. Must be a fabulous hobby for someone!
