Black Friday

Black Friday reminds me of why I'm glad I collect vintage: while the hoards of 'sheeple' trample and shoot each other in their desire for crap that will be thrown out after a year, I look for long forgotten things of high quality in which few others are interested.

Today, the (deadly) national holiday to consumerism. How sad.

Did you see in the news that a temporary worker at a Wal-Mart in Long Island was trampled to death because they lacked adequate crowd control. A new low in mindless consumerism. I love the term "sheeple"!

I hear ya. It seems that the vintage items, especially shoes, were much better made. Just the thought of those crowds makes me queasy.
