What were your best and worst consumer experiences this week?

Which consumer happenings cheered you recently and which ones made you want to scream or weep?

Here are my best and worst consumer experiences this week:


My best: Several dozen bright, beautiful photos from Ritz Camera

I’m working on selling greeting cards locally featuring my photos.

I had a great time going through my Apple iPhoto library and looking for my best photos. Then I uploaded them to Ritz Pix for printing. I also went through one of my 50 photo albums and pulled negatives to be reprinted. More joy.

My worst: A search for wooden picture frames

I’m applying to sell my photos at a local artists’ gallery. They want the photos to be hung with wires. The shop has pegboard and wire hangers work the best.

I looked at Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts, Target, and Macy’s but couldn’t find any black wooden ones I liked. I bought three at Jo-Ann’s but I may take them back.

Where do you buy nice-looking picture frames at a reasonable price? Let me know in the Comment section below.
