We stop into Mystery Spot every so often when we're in the area. I'm not an antiques person and I happen to find 60-yr old clothes and shoes to be kind of gross. But I like to sort through the books and the old family photos on display. My mom gets a kick out of the array of clothes and "garage sale in a box" items on the front deck and the slot where you put money if you're purchasing something when the store is closed. So with all this in mind, I was surprised this past weekend when I visited the store and found the owner to be so unfriendly (downright rude, in fact). First, I asked if there was a rest room available. I didn't really expect there to be, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. The answer was "ummm.... Not really" and then she opened the door to the bathroom right in front of me! Next, my father - a retired, professional photographer - was admiring one of the cameras that was on display. She snatched it out of his hands and said, "I need to assist customers with that. Can't you see the tag?" And proceeded to point out the microscopic, dust covered tag that said to ask for help - a tag he was apparently supposed to read from the shelf on which the camera sat. After that we just called it quits and headed into some of the other shops, which is sad because I'm sure my parents would have picked up a few items. Maybe she was just having a bad day or maybe she just doesn't care about how customers perceive her, but the owner definitely needs help in the manners department.
