It's fun to shop! Even in this unfunny moment in history.

I’m the type of person where I have a hard time going to audio shops just to look at stuff without the intention to buying. If they let me jam music for a bit I at least walk out with a record or other cheap item.
It’s fun to window shop if I’m actually trying to buy something. I just don’t understand when people send an offer and when I say yes, they then don’t pay. If I’m haggling a price I’m pretty dead set on buying if my offer is accepted.
Really? At a time like this??
i know what you mean. I’ll get people asking me this, that, how Nora Jones sounds on these compared to those. Some don’t mind a full, well thought out comparison between what you are selling and what you’ve had comparable in the past 20 years... I look at it as part of the fun of the hobby. Also, sometimes people are really considering buying but are comparing multiple options.
And then you get the buyer that asks zero questions, buys what you are selling, then e-mails you to Thank You and let you know how excited they are. They then send pics of their set-up with the newly purchased item!
But yeah, maybe window shopping is what people do before buying. When I’m spending $1000 on something, I become obsessive with the reviews, comparisons and available options at the time
