they could get 3x as much for them.

You only stayed a few minutes, no walking and looking (smelling)!!! Costs to much to not be fun.

Well, I did take a moment to chat with the two lovely ladies who were running the place. and I may have sowed down to open a jar or two for a quick sniff.

But I was still out of there in a matter of minutes.

I'm sure I'd be the same way on a return trip Andy. The first time I spent more time (one hour) than money ($30) but now that I know what they have, and have sniffed my way through practically every jar on display, I could go in with a list, toss what I want into a basket, and get out in way under an hour next time.

Another one...I can't even get out of a convenience store that fast...

Not a shopper, a buyer. I'm in and out quickly because I know what I want before I go out, focus on getting that then leaving because my mission was accomplished.

On the other hand, shopping is wandering around aimlessly looking at stuff and occasionally buying something.
