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.
