What Tam Said

About relics(http://booksbikesboomsticks.blogspot.com/2017/12/relics.html?m=1) Brick and mortar stores.  I had a particular gift in mind but I needed to see it for real rather than online.  So I set off to outlets and malls.  Only to find that once nice collections are now reduced to a couple of this and that.  It's a death spiral - people order online so not as much is bought at a store. So they stop stocking.  But if they don't stock it you can no longer buy at a brick and morter store because they don't have it. But the store is declining because you can't buy stuff there.  Because they don't stock it because it's bought online.

Sigh.

But I got the tree up.

  2. It is a death spiral, and agreed, some things I want to physically hold in my hand before I spend $$ on them!
