We were at a very posh mall. You know the mall that you go to just to window shop because everything is terribly overpriced! Anyways, they used to have a bunch of kiosks all over but I guess they are not in fashion anymore. Now they have tables where the kiosks were. Or maybe it is a sign of the times. You know-even the posh can't afford a kiosk cart. I kind of liked the kiosk carts and in a fire they could drag their entire business out the door with them. Well it might block the door a bit and some people might get trapped if you tried to get the kiosk out a door but it is business first, right?
Ok, I'm off track again. One of the tables had a bunch of flat glass cases all over. You know the ones that are like windows lying on their backs and had the locks on them where only the seller could open them. They were selling tons and tons of antique jewelry. And Lord have mercy, they were charging a ton. As in $200-$300 for a bracelet. Now I am not a trained professional but a lot of it looked as if it were garage sale finds. As in $4 to $5, garage sale finds. But since we were in a ubber-posh mall, the women were snatching these things up like crazy. The majority were beautiful but so over-priced. We actually had to sneak past a few people and turn sideways just to look into the cases. Den was next to me and because I have no tact or class, I said, "I wonder how many grandmas had to die to fill these cases." I got the standard response from Den which was him shaking his head and a bit of eye rolling. The woman next to me found that to be very funny. She was laughing so hard she couldn't even talk, she just nodded in agreement. Maybe I should be a bit more quiet.
A Sad Day for NanNaw,
