Julie visited this knick knack shop in Coronado, CA. They appear to be trying to make unnecessary quotation marks their house style. Along with high prices for used stuff... She notes they also had several "vintage" items. "vintage" in this case code for "kind of old and beat up"
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands".
