Embarrassed of buying Pokemon goods?

Here's an interesting (random) question for the community: Do you ever get embarrassed with looking for/buying Pokemon in retail stores?

For me personally, it's only sometimes. In places like anime cons or the Pokemon Tour, it's like whatever, knowing you aren't the only fan who's a big kid there. If I'm with someone, I love checking out collectible toys in Toys r Us! Somehow, I don't feel as shy buying Pokemon goods at a TRU... However, it's funny when it comes to department stores like Target and Walmart, especially if I'm by myself checking out the toy aisles. I do it causually and quick, as if I'm not looking for myself, but perhaps a gift? Not bad with friends, but I still end up being the only one looking through toys for something :p

I know I'm pretty open about my fandom, and all my friends know it, so it's not like I'm a closet fan with Pokemon (although I used to be...) But something about checking out at department stores still bugs me for some reason... Not sure why! One of those irrational things, I guess, although it shouldn't matter what other people think. It's probably only when I'm by myself, because people probably wouldn't expect me to be buying "kiddie things" like Pokemon :p
