I am a very touchy feely shopper. Soft blankets, smooth silk…I have to reach out and touch it when I’m in a store. After two years together, my husband still gets taken by surprise all the time when I veer off out of nowhere because I see something that catches my eye.

And not only is the leather in perfect condition…it’s also slightly cushy. Well, at $5, of course I had to have it. I’ll read it eventually, but for now, it shooooooooore is purdy.
