Online or In Person ~ How do you prefer to shop?

You all know I am a fan of CSN Stores. I've raved about them here before in reference to my rug, my shelf and my rocking chairs. They have over 200 online stores you know, with great stuff like extra tall bar stools and electric blankets and apple peeler/corer/slicer gadgets that make short work of a bushel of fresh picked apples. You name it, they have it. And their service is fabulous. No joke. I've never had one problem with any purchase I have made from them. And lots of their items offer free shipping.

Christmas is coming, faster than I'd like to admit. So my question to you today is: How do you prefer to shop, online or in person, or does it depend on the occasion? I'm just curious!

Next time I'll show you the contents of a box I received in the mail today. It wasn't a shopping delivery though. It was the prize from a giveaway I won and I just love it! I see so much potential in a little box! Can't wait to show you!

Happy Stitching!

  • you know, I love them both! I don't live in a very big city so brown (UPS) and purple(fedex) are my BFF's

  • If I can get it local, I do. And with fabrics, I prefer to touch them if I can. But when the kids were little, shopping on-line was a lifesaver. The younger one was he** in stores. She liked to hide. I wasn't as fond of that game.

  • I love Amazon but have never explored CSN - guess I better see what I am missing! I really prefer to see an item before I buy it - I order online only if I know the item is exactly what I want. I hate the hassle of returning items and waiting for the credit.

  • Depends on the occassion ... and how much time I have or don't have!

  • Of course it depends. The only heirloom sewing shop near me closed two years ago, so I have to get batiste, piques and that sort of fabric online. There is an excellent embroidery shop nearby, well, 35 miles, so I can buy most threads there. But for quilt fabric, I love to touch and see it, so usually buy in a store. For general Christmas gifts, online is definitely the way to go!

  • I am gravitating more and more to online shopping. It's convenient and I can do it in the middle of the night in my pj's. Having said that, I do like to actually go shopping for some things, like clothes. Also I like to see fabrics "in person" if at all possible because sometimes the colors are not "true" on my monitor screen.

  • If I can get a great deal on-line shopping I will do that. Since I work retail I'm not able to shop Black Friday in person (I'm working! ); but I have found that the on-line deals are sometimes better than in the store.

    As for the rest of the year, I use the internet for getting reviews and keeping wish lists. And will order only if the deal is great.
