Interesting observation yesterday.....

Just a thought.
I used to shop Costco weekly when I was buying for 7 people + 2 dogs.
It was cost effective for us as we went through much more in a week.

Now, buying for 2 people and one less dog :( , Costco is not economical for us any more.
It may have something to do with demographical changes in the area.

We shopped yesterday in Utah at a large mall and it was empty.
We drove over to Vegas at their Fashion Show mall and it was packed.
It was a stark contrast and I'm still trying to figure out why.

We quit our day jobs in 1982 (30 years ago!) and have made a comfortable living selling art ever since. But in the last 3 years we have barely seen a sale. Fortunately we had the foresight to plan for a drought. There have been a few over the years, but NOTHING of this magnitude. Nobody (aside from a few financial guys) is buying art.
Very interesting observation indeed! I especially appreciate the fact that it is about July LY vs July TY!
