Trying to do all of my holiday shopping online and it isn’t working for me.
While searching for a plaid scarf, I quickly found a few Etsy sellers that seemed promising.
Then I noticed that each seller claimed to make the same plaid scarf but their prices ranged from $19-$44.
Wondering how that could be, I read the item descriptions that included each seller publicly berating the others for stealing their handmade scarf.
Hmmmm. What to do? What to do?
I almost put a few of the $19 joyless scarves in my cart but I passed.
Hoping to move on to a happier place, I stumbled across a site in China that sells the same scarf (no, it’s not handmade) for $4.00. Lucky me!
Unfortunately, the fate of the plaid scarf was sealed when the description of the $4 scarf read … When you remove the scarf from the package, it smells. Remove the scarf and hang it up for a couple of days to air out.
I’m going to the mall boys, I’ll be back.
