A birch-lover's dream

You will probably recall this post about a set of paddles sold as a wall decoration.

Recently I happened to stumble across the home furnishings store that sold them. I hadn't realized that the store was in my vicinity, but was happily surprised, and made a detour on my way home to drop in and explore.

I didn't see any paddles hanging on the wall but - you won't believe this - the interior of the store was a birch-lover's dream. Bunches of long twigs stood in large vases on the floor. Others were displayed invitingly on top of coffee tables. There were fat bundles everywhere I looked. They came in all colours, lengths and thicknesses; curly, straight, thick, thin - you name it.

I can't imagine displaying so many spanking accessories in my own home. Ron would have something to say about cluttering our coffee tables with six-foot long birch rods. But it was lovely to feel that spanko tingle as I explored the showroom. As I left, I promised the greeter that I would return and bring my husband. Who knows what impulse might strike while he's examining the merchandise.

I looked up the merchant online when I got home, and sure enough, the birch bundles are on the website, curiously listed under "artificial flowers".

It is so cool to find an implement in a vanilla store. There is a greenhouse in a botanical garden in the UK filled with just plants: canes of all types.

I was in DollarTree the other day and found 3' lengths of bamboo that would work really well as an attention getter! HHmmm... I thought better of it! *giggling* Course I'm sure the only noise that it would make would be coming out of me... which is what we're always looking for! :o)

Another great find, and must have been fun to walk around the store and imagine... However, Would it not be easier to walk in the woods and find your own branches?
happy spankings

Loved to have seen the inside of that store and I wouldn't have been able to resist buying a bunch.

Have a good weekend Hermione.


Hermione said...

Joey - I love botanical gardens, especially those that have implements growing.

Mikki - Yes, I've seen canes in the Dollar Store too. They make me forget what Iwent in for.

Red - Oh, but these are bundled for your spanking convenience, and are so beautiful and decorative. No leaves either.

Ronnie - I might buy some but just can't decide which colour to get. That would depend on what room they were for. What fun, decorating with switches!

Haha, Hermione, why not buy red? Then he can use them till your bottom matches the colour! xxxxxxxxx

I've seen some variations of similar decorations in stores, but not so many in one place. Makes you wonder how many people out there have figured out the alternate uses.

Hermione said...

Daisy - Even if it clashes with the furniture? Better than maroon or purple, though.

Lea - There seemed to be a knowing gleam in the greeter's eye:) Maybe they've guessed it's a good way to get customers to linger.
