    splashed out on something, spur of the moment that you've seen in a Disney store? Something you had no intentions of buying before you walked through the door.

    DH thinks it only me so please, help me put him straight

    no it's just you.

    Actually I did buy a large plush Pumbaa and then ended up having to buy a bag to pack him in as well.

    Not strictly speaking in Disney, but we did splash out at the Wyland Gallery at the Boardwalk a few years ago.

    I had just become a bit flushed with cash thanks to a dividend from my company after we had just had a thumping good year, and we saw a piece of sculpture called " The Perfect Wave" that we couldn`t resist.
    We kept on returning to the store, and after much deliberation we went and bought it.

    This was the first [and last] piece of fine art that we have ever bought, and despite it costing an arm and a leg, it has risen in value considerably over the years....apparently it was the most popular sculpture that Wyland ever produced, and a limited production to boot... so it turned out to be quite an investment.

    I love Wyland's work, Slowhand! I particularly love the sea turtle table he has.

    Since we don't really consider ourselves shoppers, any time we walk into a Disney shop and walk out with something, it's a spur of the moment kind of purchase. With the exception of Herself's Lennox Snow White and the Boys collection, we don't usually have a plan to purchase any given item.

    If we are going to spend more than the cost of a t-shirt, it's usually on a cookbook or other housewares item.

    I love the Wyland Gallery at BW too. So many fantastic pieces and we find the staff are always very nice there. Never bought anything though

    I'm a sucker for Steamboat Willie so, if I ever see anything new with him in/on it, I usually end up buying it. I have quite a collection of SW plush/ornaments now
