In Praise Of Tourists

Specialty Merchandise Traders in the Upper Market rely heavily on tourists for successful trading days. They will tell you that there is a world of difference between locals and tourists when it comes to buying attitudes (pun intended).
So we have compiled a table of customer attitudes that might just explain this phenomenon and illustrate why tourists are the lifeblood of the Upper Market.

Maybe I’ll go home and think about it.
I need to make a decision now.
It will still be here next week.
I won’t be back for 12 months.
I don’t have to rush.
I may never see this again.
I’ll check out the local shops or online.
I may never see this again.
Why is every second stall a souvenir trader?
This is a treasure chest for souvenirs.
