Buen Fin Mexico’s version of Black Friday

We had our shopping list made out, knew what stores we wanted to shop. Had been there measuring tv’s to make sure they would fit our stand.  We were up early had a lovely breakfast of fruit and figured there would be a huge line up so arrived at the store 40 minutes ahead of opening time.  There were no lines and they let us come right in, maybe they opened early and we didn’t know  it.  Took us about 5 minutes to show the staff which TV the Senor wanted and brought it down,  A  43 inch Samsung smart TV, but the box didn’t sa smart TV and I was determined that it had to be a “smart ” TV.  The employees then took it out of the box, two of them held it while the 3rd plugged it in and then turned it on where it promptly lit up saying SMART TV.  I was satisfied and impressed with the helpfulness of the staff and the Senor Singer is happy with his TV.

Next on to purchase a sewing machine for me as I want to make new curtains and drapes for the apartment. 20 percent off on my Singer was a good deal especially with the peso running 20 -1. Buy this time the fabric store was busy and they have an unusual way of dealing with merchandise it takes a minimum of 3 people to compleat a sale and you have to criss-cross the store to do it.  I needed notions like thread bobbins and scissor, but they are all kept behind the counter and only 2 – 3 employes deal with that and also with the cutting of ribbons and trims.  The mexican ladies were lined up 3 deep and they are a little pushier than I, so I decided to return tomorrow early for the little stuff,  My “lista” is all written out in Spanish.

Once at home we was discovered that even though we had measured carefully our TV stand is 1 inch to short.  So we went back to the wood shop that made it and they will have a new top for it tomorrow.  Problem solved! Pictures to follow  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
