One can say that I am not a person that has a lot of vices in her life, but the one BIG vices I have is a QVC shopping addiction. I love, love, love to shop. One can say that it’s my meditation I love to look at the newest trends in fashion and jewelry . I love how every QVC host are high energy and spirited people what ever there selling an item. Yes it’s my way of by passing Prozac for depression and trading it for bill pay every month.
When I do watch QVC I will do comparison shopping in that I will go on line and see what Wal-Mart or EBay is selling an item for. In most cases though QVC will only carry items that are not selling at regular retail. That’s how they get you hooked in that nobody else has it but QVC.
My need to shop was actually passed to me by my grand mother who would always fine interesting and out the ordinary things that nobody ever would have. I loved that about her. I always wanted to know why did you pick this item out or why did you like this particular color grand mom. She would say to me: this vase will be a collector piece when I am gone some day. My grand mother would also buy things even when she really did not need them for example, She once bought a twenty piece sliver where set from QVC when she never really did any big dinner parties. My mother would say to her “ YOU REALLY DON’T NEED THIS” My grand mother would promptly say you will have it when I am gone and you will be happy that you have it. You will then pass it along to someone in the family. Well it got passed down to me…… I guess I am the lucky. J Even on my grand mother death bed I kid you not she was watching and buying off of QVC ( NO LIE)
So in truth whether my QVC shopping addiction gene was passed on to me or whether It was taught to me. I feel must carry on with the tradition and my grand mothers spirit alive by buying The Today’s Special Value On QVC whether I need it or not just so I can pass off the shopping gene to my new grand daughter to be.
