I thought I’d cheat a little bit by trying to find something that could only be bought locally. That failure would take my sister’s idea out utility of online shopping and blow it completely out of water. For this specialized task I picked one of my favorite foods – organic, wild blueberry pancake syrup sold in our local farmer’s market. While it’s always a pain to wake up early on Saturday mornings to drive all way down to market, it’s worth it to get this locally-made, yet exotic product. Unfortunately for me, it was easy to find. I entered phrase Blueberry Syrup into Froogle and it was first product sold there. I had no idea they sold this stuff on internet! The new franchising and marketing opportunities have enabled local growers to market and ship their product all over states.
One last shot – I’d look for something for my sister, to get something so personal and unique that you’d definitely have to go there to get it. It was an item that we had seen on a friend’s wall, and for years now my sister had wanted one of her own. As it turns out, Thai elephant painting (the elephants grab paintbrushes with their trunks and then paint a canvas) is now online, and yes, they will take custom orders. I hadn’t really been willing to fly to Thailand to get a painting, anyway, but I certainly hadn’t thought that would have been online.
I called up my sister in defeat. After two hours online, I had bought all my major presents. Sis answered her cell phone and said that she was still stuck in rush-hour traffic on way to store.
