I don’t know if my year at home turned me into some sort of recluse, but I don’t find joy in shopping malls any more. I would much rather shop online!
We went to Sandton City today, so I could get more coffee from Nespresso, and decided to pop in at Typo quickly. You know, much like last time, I just didn’t feel it. Yes, there are many cutesy things, but none that I would actually buy. Those stamps I bought last time – awesome as they are, I can’t actually use them around the office much. I looked for more stamps today. They have stuff like “OMG!” “Douchebag” & “Fucking Idiot”. Funny, maybe, but hardly appropriate for office use. All I want are stamps that say “done” “to file” etc… Normal office things but just in fun colours. Anybody know where else I can look for these things (online preferably)?
Then, I mentioned last week on the Twitters that we’re moving to a new office/building and we get to decorate our office how we want to. We being my work BFF, the real designer, and me. We’re thinking a darker blue chalkboard paint production wall, a lighter blue maybe turquoise product wall and red accessories. We’re on a budget and will probably have to get all the accessories ourselves. I managed to find us a very cool red clock on 5rooms.com on Friday. They delivered today = AWESOME service!! But the problem I have is that I can’t find many cool, quirky or fun red office accessories anywhere I’ve looked. I saw (and got reminded by a twitterer) that Citymob had a red pop up sale a while ago, but it’s over now. I find very many red kitchen things, but nothing for an office
I was hoping to find something at Typo today, but they didn’t have anything in red.
I think what I’m trying to say is that online shopping trumps real life shopping. You can do it from the comfort of your desk, with no one realising you’ve been shopping for an hour. Our trip to Sandton took just over an hour and a half! Also, with multiple tabs open, you can view a lot more products in a shorter space of time. I’m click-happy!
Anyone who has any suggestions for any places to shop at, I’m open to your suggestions!!
