Finding the Gem in a Shop

Let's face it, our well-being is more than meditating and being in the moment as I often write about.

Our well-being hinges on the choices we make that help us smile, relax and take the time to do things that just give us that feel-good feeling! Sometimes, it's simply about finding a little shopping experience gem tucked away in your neck of the woods. You know what I mean ladies. (Fellows, I suggest you substitute automotive, hardware, sports equipment thoughts at any point you might feel uncomfortable.)*

I believe that we need to grab the moment to treat ourself well. I believe that if you can combine that feeling with supporting a local business that offers you a quality experience, where you are surrounded by beautiful, tasteful items then you just have to go for it!

Well-being comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes.

Such a little wonder is a shop named ARMADIO - by Delia in my home town. You probably have a similar little delight close to you but I have ARMADIO! "Collaborative Consignment" their sign says.

Take the moment to make a conscious choice about your well-being.

Entering a shop like this which promotes other local businesses and is pretty in-a-funky kind of way, which offers you fashionable consigned items at affordable prices and has excellent customer service is a drawing card for the best of us.

I believe in the philosophy of collaboration - and that passing on your prized clothing is a gift, doing so supports our clean environment, gives your pocket book a happy dance, and allows you exposure to some up-and-coming entrepreneurs. Everyone wins!

A person could dawdle at ARMADIO - by Delia, and I guarantee that walking in will slow down your frenetic pace and encourage you to BE in the moment, another bonus.

If you have the good fortune of having access to this shop, don't postpone getting there! We all need be to pampered and appreciated, you can use your well-being as the reason. (I have officially given you approval!) And when you are there, pick up one of their business cards, they are so delicious to look at, that they belong in a candy dish.

Wherever you live in the world, spend some time to find out what you need to boost your well-being. You might find yourself in a place that feels like Home.
