today is Thursday. this means that the Holiday Boutique @work will be open and i will work my shift as usual.
riddle me this: why is it that cool handmade stuff like earrings, crocheted scarfs and yes, paper bag books AREN'T selling, but some things like jars filled with cookies from last year (no i am not kidding) are selling like hotcakes.
this boutique is doing some good, 10% of the proceeds goes to a youth shelter nearby. but what i don't get is how can most of the stuff in it be crap from a cheesy gift store...and sell. while some really cool homemade things don't even move.
seriously. one of the mail room workers is selling his collection of mini Beany Babies. from McDonalds.
i don't get it. not a bit.
i'll see if i can take a picture. but i'm annoyed. not only that my handiwork isn't selling, but that the two coordinators of this thing insist on using really strong potpourri in the store. it's really, really strong. it made one lady lose her voice. when i said something, i was treated as if i had spat on the grave of their grandmother.
can't we all just get along? oh, and buy some of the handmade works while you're at it.
