A CHANGE IN SEASON

 
I am used to seeing Christmas in July.
 
 
But the other day I went to the store and low and behold, guess what I saw? My favorites... autumn florals and pumpkins. Even Yankee Candle has it's new fall scents out to sample this early. Imagine that! Are they rushing the season? What do you think?

It seems the stores bring in each season earlier and earlier each year. If you want something you have to buy early as when the season actually comes they'll be having the next one out. As for me I'm just trying to enjoy summer while we have it. Such as it is anyway.

A little early yet. Summer has hardly gotten here for us to enjoy. Happy Monday!

It's a little early, perhaps.....
but I always get excited when autumn things start appearing in the stores.

Summer is just getting started and they already have autumn stuff out? I do think they are rushing it a little bit, even though it is my favorite season I don't want to see it just yet!

The cool of Autumn would be nice (smile) but I cannot think that far ahead. My brother who was in the floral business had to always think 6 months ahead for his ordering stock. Would have driven me bonkers.
Good post, forces me to think. (very hard on an old ma). hahahaha

I suppose crafty people need that stuff out early. For me, however, seeing it all makes me feel rushed... like it's hard to sit back and enjoy the NOW because I'm faced with what's coming up NEXT.

Seems they like to put things out earlier and earlier. It doesn't bother me really. Hope you are having a great week. Take care, Sheila

Autumn in July? I think they might as well just leave up the holidays all year round. sandie

Well, it's too early for me! I'm old-fashioned I guess, but I want to enjoy each season and not be faced with the holiday stuff staring me in the face which is a few months away when I go shopping. Just my 2 cents! Take care.

It gets earlier every year. They are rushing the season and I can't get used to it. You are getting around more, it seems. I hope you feel as good as you look.

I know they put all the merchandise out early, but I LOVE to see Fall things out and it makes me smile when I go shopping and see all the bright oranges. I like to get my shopping done early so I can take time to enjoy every season to the fullest. I'm with you Taryterre....it makes me happy.

Love,

I understand why the craft stores put stuff out early - - because crafters need time to complete projects - - - - BUT we get tired of it before the season if we see it for too long a period of time.
With that said, I did pick up two stocking stuffers the other day for my daughters - - - cuz they were a cute item I knew they would use.

I say BRING IT ON!!! FALL is my FAVORITE!! Can't wait!!!

Pam said...

Yes, way too early. I was in Hobby Lobby and was shocked to see Christmas coming out already and Fall was all over the place.

Terri said...

Well it's not too early for me- I am ready for the heat to go away...but I do think stores rush the season entirely too much!
