My daughter gave us a Bed Bath & Beyond gift card as a Christmas present, and one of the nice things about this card is you can use it to shop online. Since we bought the farm, our list of things we need is long, and funds are short at the moment, so we figured we'd find something we could use pretty quickly.
As you may already know, we're not big shoppers, and after wandering around BB&B's web site, we are quickly reminded of some of what it is we don't like about shopping. Product descriptions are colorful if not exactly descriptive of what the actual product is. For example...What the hell is a Duvet?
First off...The web site shows pictures of Duvet sets...I think. I looked at these photos, and wondered what it was that made what looked like ordinary bedding a Duvet. I even read the description of the items..."a colorful Duvet perfect for accenting..." Yeah right...what does that mean? It sure didn't describe the item to me, just what it would do for me...a perfect selling tactic for sure, but not very helpful if you don't know what a Duvet is.
Second...is it Duvet like Corvette, or Duvet like Chevrolet?
Third...is that fancy name a more accurate description of an item, or just a good way to make you feel all warm and fuzzy when you buy one? I guess if you already know what a Duvet is, it's probably a good description, but for us uninformed shoppers, we still don't have a real firm grasp on what a Duvet really is except some sort of bedding.
Margie stumbled on this item looking for what she thought would be a common item like a bedspread. We've not found this item yet on the BB&B web site, but maybe we did. Perhaps they just call it a Duvet now.
