The good, the good and the ugly: the plain ugly and nasty



You might have noticed I've been putting this post off badly. It just makes me so sad to be writing this. Last weekend there was a party in my neighbourghood. All the sellers had their stuff out in the streets, it was lovely. Mr. M. and I were strolling about when he just went: Have you seen those?! And there they were: my bags, the bags that I have been seeing in different versions sprounting all over the place. I've now gone from "it must be coincidence" to "I want their heads". These bags are such a blatant copy that I can't help but feeling badly hurt. Worst thing is, they are from a very small young Italian company (or so the girl in the shop said). We can't seem to find them, but I think I will prosecute them. Shame on them for taking the stuff ofa student off the net and selling it down her road. They charge pretty much the same I charge for an original for bad industrially produced ones. They must feel proud and creative.
Sorry about the rant. I knew it was not going to be nice.

What did you think?
