And this is the “mockumentary” of how it went down. Yes, I challenged myself to give up Amazon and other online retailers for Lent, and fair to say it’s been a loooooong 40 days. Spoiler alert: Tar-jay was involved, as was a little kickboxing, and the novelty of real live interactions with real live people. (Btw, this video is not sponsored, and the dog was on loan from our producer, Katie! 😉)
Huge thank you to our Los Angeles area friends for helping with this: Lenny from Star Toys in Brentwood (which had been open since 1968 and just recently closed its doors), and to Brooks Shoes for Kids in Santa Monica for letting us film in your stores.
