You leave the store and you continue to think about it?
When we were in New England we stopped at a shop and they had this beautiful thick chunky french botanical book.
As you know I am a Francophile, and I used to be a Master Gardener, so this was a combination of two of my loves!
(Francophile [ˈfræŋkəʊˌfaɪl], Francophil [ˈfræŋkəʊfɪl] (sometimes not capital)
a person who admires France and the French
marked by or possessing admiration of France and the French)
It wasn't priced, so I asked how much?
The owner wasn't there and the shop keeper didn't even know if it was for sale....
What? Not for sale?! Surely, there is a price for everything!?
So, I left my card and told them I would be by in the morning.
We went back in the morning, still no answer on a price.
I left the store in a slump :(
Then we decided to have breakfast in the area, rather than moving along on our trip.
My phone rang! "Yes, she will sell it!" I was told!
So we ran over to the store before we left town and I got this wonderful book!
It has beautiful illustrations...
It's one of my favorite things!
Now I just have to learn to read it!
