while i'm staying away from stores, i am noticing that i am not missing them much. until recently, i had a stash of dozens of magazine pages, torn out and saved in the event that i wanted to seek out a featured shop in my own or some other city. i never pursued a single one of them, and finally tossed the collection. the shops i used to visit, i generally collected by happenstance, independent exploration, aimless wandering. when people tell me i have to check out this or that store, it rarely actually piques my interest.
how did you discover your favorite store(s)?
