Clockwise from the top: Didi Seven Cleaning Solution, Leather repair Kit, "The Clapper", The Shamwow.
And by “wacky” I really mean anything that made you smirk while you were dialing that number on your screen or clicking “Proceed with Purchase” on your computer. How many of you own some “end-of-all-cleaning-products” cleaning product, a ShamWow, that leather-patching kit or even the venerable Clapper?
By “wacky” I may also mean extreme; with the advent of Ebay and Craigslist, people are buying whole bedroom sets without ever seeing them in person. I myself have bought a few chairs online that turned out less fabulous than expected, and my husband bought a motorcycle on Ebay that he drove half way across the country to pick up.
I’m sure you’ve got your own home-shopping stories, and if not yours, tell your friends’!
