browsing in Borders

ok so imagine this.

Young funky girl wearing a pair of moleskin pants, a Kahlua tee and a bulging back pack on back, wondering round Borders after finishing another exam. Decides to go to the top level where the bargain buys are, see if I can find anything I like – nothing much. Now over to cooking that is on the same floor – nothing grabs my eye here either so I wander over to the craft section and smack bang in the middle shelf of the craft section, is the book – The Complete Book of Creative Scrapbooking a whole shelf of our book.

So what does this girl do?
does she
a) just keep on browsing and pretend not to notice it.
b) saunter over and have a flick through and mutter to self about how good looking that guy is on page 75.
or c) pull out mobile phone and ring Barb to tell her that our book has it’s own shelf at Borders, meanwhile having staff and customers look over in awe and amazement.

Now if you picked C you are right of course. I am going to have to go back with a smaller camera and take a photo – didn’t really want to pull out the DSLR and ask someone to take a photo.

Then one of the staff that was near me comes over and asks me which one is the book and proceeds to tell me that he only made that display yesterday πŸ™‚ and chats with me about the book and the process. How cool πŸ™‚

  1. Wow Helen!! That’s awesome, congratties! *hugs* Ok I’m going to have to hightail it to Borders now as soon as I finish my assignments!

  2. Helen,
    You forgot ..

    D. Jump up and down clapping your hands screaming clapping ringing Barb all while checking out hunky guy on page 75. AND while chanting… i’m in a book! I’m in a book!
    Followed by the security guard tracking you down (not hard for all the shouting) and grabs you by the back of your moleskin pants and bulging backpack and tosses you out in the street.

    Or at least that would be my reaction if I was in a book. πŸ™‚

    GOOD FOR YOU!! How fun to see so many all at the same time! I will have to go get my own copy πŸ™‚ and be on the look out for displays here in WA. Yippee Helen!

    p.s. can’t wait to see page 75 πŸ˜‰

  3. At my Borders store, we’ve got a whole display devoted to SBing. That probably has something to do with the fact that I used to work as a manager there. ;o) And that my birthday just passed. ;o) I love my old co-workers. :o)
