Small Business Shopping – Purchases!

Two weeks ago, I visited a close friend of mine who lives a few hours away. She lives in a smaller town outside of the Twin Cities. As we were planning on what to do for the weekend, she let me know that there was a small business event where small businesses in the area were offering discounts throughout the day. I thought that could be fun as I like window shopping. I ended up with a small haul of sorts, so I figured I’d share everything that I found.

The Call of Cthulhu Purse

This is probably my favorite purchase of the day. We were at a bookstore and my friend spotted these purses based off of book covers. This purse shows the cover of one of H.P. Lovecraft’s infamous stories, The Call of Cthulhu. This purse is cross-body which is an absolute must for me. It’s also surprisingly bigger than I expected and can fit my phone, wallet, keys, and chapstick comfortably. I always like showing off elements of geekdom in the things that I wear, so this purse fits well into my closet.

Titans Hunt Issues #1-8

After purchasing the Call of Cthulhu purse, we went to the second bookstore of the day. This bookstore has more of a vintage feel to it. There are records and CDs for sale along with comics towards the back of the store. There are these white long boxes, but instead of having single-issue comics, there are comic bundles with a complete story. I found this Teen Titans series for relatively cheap. I can’t wait to start reading the series.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman

It should come as no surprise that Wonder Woman is one of my favorite comic book heroes. I have cosplayed as her several times with various differences between each cosplay. I found this book and it was a must-buy for me. It’s a non-fiction book explaining Wonder Woman’s history throughout the years. I plan on reading this book this month in between all the events I have in March.

I’m happy with my purchases! I have a new purse to carry around and new things to read. This was a successful shopping trip!
