Yes one must keep adding to our piles,Screw the recession! G
YES,YES,YES! Am off to but the T-shirt.
Testy today, are we?
Hmm. I did think there was a suspicion of irony here but I guess the message is open to interpretation on economic grounds.
Blue - you got it!
Hey! Some of us are sellers and we want you to buy our shit so we can continue to live our fabulous lifestyles ( hollow laugh....)
Elegancevintage, I am so sorry. I didn't mean to offend hard-pressed sellers. I was drawn to it as a parody of the DONT PANIC poster that is ubiquitous right now. I sensed it was aimed at the massive corporations and importers.
I keep thinking I've just about run out of shit I want to buy. Then someone comes up with something else that makes me salivate on cue. Like that damned T-shirt.
rurritable ,I was hoping for that response!
Rose - you didn't offend me - I love both the jokes. Please take my comment in a humorous vein. I realise that you share the worry about the behaviour of massive corporations. I sell only vintage fashion, textiles and French shabby chic brocante. But I do despair the ubiquitous copying imports from far eastern sources that are undermining traditional producers. We fear for the loss of intrinsic qualities which imbibe locally sourced raw materials combined with social responsibility contracts for employees. But we also worry about children and young people trapped in sweatshops and don't want to deprive them of desperately needed income. A subject for another post perhaps?
EleganceV - oH phew. The right tone doesn't always come through on these things. What you say is really pertinent, thanks.
Total perfection, that poster.
TW Thank you. It's more resonant than I ever imagined. The blog is pretty good too.
Love the tee-shirt and the conversation here. I think we all know we are in a global economy and it does suck. Big Time. At least we can have global laughter.
HBD, you put it very nicely, thanks.
As the owner of a "Keep Calm" shirt, I can honestly say I wish it were a "Buy More" shirt. Perhaps I should just, buy more!
I'd love to wear that t-shirt in Harrods!
Well for all those hankering after that T-shirt, here's the link: http://shop.moderntoss.com/t-shirts
Well, you probably know what I think. I shall spare you the rant....x
you haven't spared me the rant, Prozac, I would have savoured every bilious word of it.
