Convenience is freedom. Shopping somewhere else that will make your feet ache with limited time and limited collection is not convenient at all which only means you are not free at all. There are things that are more pleasurable that can be done than spending time looking for artworks for sale with aching legs and sore toes.
Two hours in the mall can already be a coffee break with a long lost friend. Add a couple more and you have a kiddie movie with your son. You may include a 30-minute grocery in the list of to-do’s and while walking, your eyes may catch some boutique displays to divert your attention for a while, so you go for it. All these are yours for free, not to mention, that you had a good time all dressed-up to the nines.
This is the exact scenario that people want in most of their free times which happens only once in a blue moon. Shopping is great when you know what and where exactly to look for. Hopping from one boutique to another can be fun but chances are, you’d end up hurting, tired, and disappointed because after all the searching, you find out that you settled for less. After all, a day is not enough to get the best from all the choices that seem to be equally attractive when displayed in boutique.
To look for artwork for sale from physical stores is inconvenient. It is not a soda or chocolate bar that you know where to go exactly to quench your thirst or feed your craving for sweets. Art is expensive. It may be affordable only when compared relatively to other art pieces of the same quality which means relatively it can be low-priced but when looked at as stand-alone, art is still art and it is expensive. Impulsive buying over artworks for sale is not at all practical. Given the case, the tendency is to hop from one boutique to another, from one mall to another, from one exhibit to the other. And with insufficient time to do all the work and with the realization of how much time is wasted make buying art like wall painting inconvenient, thus not free at all.
Experiences of those who are used to buy art online account differently, nonetheless. Inconvenience is not an issue but instead otherwise. Via specified search, they target what they need in a few minutes. Given than search can be longer, they stay relaxed sitting and perhaps in an air-conditioned room with the home theatre on. And this is freedom while getting the best of both worlds. Why exert too much effort when there is a way to be more efficient in a relaxed way!
