I spotted a new, Japanese -style dollar store at College Park yesterday. I had some time in between appointments, so I had to investigate.
Turns out it was pretty unspectacular. Maybe cheap plastic gew gaws have lost their appeal to me. There were a few fun-looking earrings, and some cute toys (a colourful xylophone piano and a model train track that included a dinosaur diorama), but these are things I do not need. Does anybody, really? Okay, if I had space I might have got the train set.
But the biggest disappointment was the stationery section. This is normally the part I love the best because pens are useful. On the other hand, I have so many writing utensils that I’m actually stressed out about keeping all my fountain pens flowing.
The saddest part (aside from the knock-off GShocks) is that when I got home to write up my report, I couldn’t even remember the stores’ name.
