Share a shopping secret?

I’ve stumbled upon a a shopping sweet spot.

It’s the place I go to find items I can’t find at other locations in Charlotte. And, apparently not many people know it’s there, since I can always find what I’m looking for and it’s never crowded.

This isn’t the first time I’ve wanted to blab and to keep a fab secret at the same time. I’ve had an aesthetician and been a regular at a few nail salons that were so beloved I didn’t want to share their information outside my circle of friends.

Have you found yourself in this situation? What do you do?


  1. I feel like I discover places like this a lot. But I always share the secret, because I want the place to do well and stay in business. It does me no good if I'm the only one shopping there and months later it's gone because no one frequents it the way I do.

  2. Great comment from "Anonymous". I have a household painter and handyman that I had been keeping close, to my contacts. I found that it benefitted me as well as them to pass on the info to my family and friends. I have a salon specialist and facial person that I am now sharing the beuty of their craft with others. They are not only good people, but so great at their crafts.
