I don't like shopping especially Saturdays it's to, busy and so is Christmas time, I only go shopping when I need something.

Hello
Personally I do not like much shopping, only if I need some clothes or shoes and I usually go with my wife or my little daughter to advise me, since they are better stylists and they like buying a lot. But if I like to walk through the street markets where I can distract myself seeing the sellers attract potential customers, as well as the colors of the sales points

In my neighbourhood in Japan, there are a lot of supermarkets and convenience stores, but they are all the same and boring. I prefer individual small groceries and shops, because they know a lot about their goods to sell and kind to customers. However, unfotunately, such small shops are disappearing as big shoppin malls provide things at cheaper prices. I stubbornly keep on buying things at small individual stores!

I don't like shopping. I prefer street shooping or market. In London I like to go to Borough Market or Portobelo Road but my wife prefer Oxford Street.

Hello

I love shopping everywhere, but the problem is money. In stores, you need a much money than in a flea market or something like this.
I love Rastro in Madrid, because is my town, but it was wonderful to buy in Petticot Lane in London or Khan El Khalili in Cairo

Hello...
I´m Titor, I´m from México. Here there are a lot of places where you can shoopings. for example there are elegant stores like "Palacio de Hierro" where the rich people go to shopping; in the other hand exist "Tepito" this is an huge informal market, where you can shopping whatever you want, the most of the things are piracy or stolen things. Here dosen´t come rich people.
So it depends what you want.

Hi dear, I really like this conversation it makes me wanting to learn much in English.

I don't like going to shop at the malls or big department stores. I hate crowds and the people going crazy about shoes and clothes. Is that so important for them? I like wandering into a handicraft market, peep the unusual things, and always I spend more money there than I expected. Here handicraft markets don't accept credit cards.
I haven't never heard about those sites that Tess and Ravi mentioned but, I'd like know them. London must be a beautiful city, plenty of culture, museums, and great people.

I live in a big city with many shops and flea markets. There are differents shop ,cheep or not...Depends on your wallet!
I never been in London but i hope to go sometime.

In my country there are many places where you can go shopping and buy all kind of things you can imagine like clothes, antiques, food, exotic things, animals (I don't like it). A great place for shopping is downtown where you can buy anything you want and many times with good price, it's fair to say that it is too crowded though. I usually buy fruit, vegetables and meat on the street market near my house, you can buy them cheaper and better quality than the supermarket. I like to buy clothes but almost always in the stores there are many people and I always get stressed though.
