What Tam Said

About relics( 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.


But I got the tree up.


  1. Which one got cooked first, the chicken or the egg?

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