I'd like your opinion
I've been invited to a Patsy Aiken party (like Tupperware, only with kids' clothes). The hostess is an old friend with whom I'd love to reconnect. She's a busy working mom, and we've never managed to schedule so much as a playdate at the neighborhood park. So what's a frugal friend to do? You know I don't need any kids' clothes! Should I buy the least expensive item and consider it a social cost, like I would for a lunch date? Or is it okay to make a brief visit, chatting for a bit and leaving with a catalog? I'm really unsure of shopping party etiquette, and I'd love your advice!
