For some of us, shopping is not merely a trip made to acquire goods and services, it is a quest, an art form, a manifestation of personal expression, a means to another set of means.
But what if you’re too sick to shop?
What if you need shopping ideas about new products or stores?
Suppose you’ve reached the point of being bored with the kind of shopping you do and need new malls to conquer?
What if your compulsion to shop doesn’t end when you get into bed at night?
Yes! Take yourself to the internet, punch in “shopping video” and be amazed at all that the world wide web has waiting there for you. You can find shopping videos about new products. Watch a shopping video about Black Friday all across the United States and other parts of the world. See how crazy shoppers can get at special sales on a shopping video. Learn how to shop for certain things, for example, learn how to choose ripe fruits and select vegetables at the peak of freshness.
A shopping video can teach you how to buy a car or how not to buy a house. The selection of subjects is reflective of what is on the internet: way too many. You’ll find the oddball shopping videos, the really interesting, the funny and the ones that have you scratching your head.
In another sense, shopping video can also be instructive about the price of things, especially antiques and unusual items. Think about what’s available on cable TV. “Antiques Roadshow” and “American Pickers” come to mind as great examples of current shows that discuss prices of special items. The Do It Yourself network often gets into discussions about the prices of things, including homes. “Chasing Classic Cars” on the Velocity network shows several ways of going shopping for a unique automobile or motorcycle.
And what about eBay? There you can enjoy not only enjoy shopping, but employ the auction approach to buying in a video format. And you will really know what something is worth.
No, you don’t necessarily have to be in a store to get the shopping experience. Shopping video can scratch that itch for you.
