I've so often read fellow bloggers' "rants" about everything from politics to nasty comments but have never felt the need to write one of my own (though I'm very interested in politics and have been known to get nasty from time to time,) But now I'm steamed..... Not about what's happening in the election (ok, I'm steamed about that too but know better than to write about it here!) But about a new "Williams-Sonoma Exclusive" cushion.
It just so happens that I've been selling a curiously similar cushion for just a bit over a year...... as have other Etsy sellers.....
Here's what they have to say about theirs.......
Ok, aside from the drivel about medieval bakers' stamps....
(Nonsense, it's a postmark WSH, an 1837 postmark from Boulogne-sur-Mer in Northern France.) Look at the price! More than a few Etsy sellers, (ok, including me) are selling similar hand crafted ones with the same graphic from The Graphics Fairy for significantly less. Really, visit Etsy and look up Paris Postmark Cushion and Boulogne Postmark, you'll see!
I'll likely have gotten over this by the morning, but for now I'm really huffing and puffing, thinking that a big company like WSH, with its army of designers could come up with something that wouldn't have such a negative effect on a one man (err.... woman) band like mine. Or, was that their goal all along?
Enjoy your evening everyone - If you're in the States, tomorrow is going to be a long, nail biter of a late night. I sent my ballot in last week. Make sure you cast yours!
