the dreaded middle man arrives again

Friday March 5th

I recently went to one of Melbourne's many tip shops
and was not surprised to see one of Camberwell Market's 
big stall holders ferreting around amongst the goods.

But I was surprised when it was evident he worked there!
Voluntarily I'm guessing. 
Then the penny dropped. 

That is why
there is never anything good in 
tip shops or city opp shops anymore. 
It is siphoned off before it hits the stands.

I call this arrival of the dreaded middle man syndrome.

This Friday in honour of all that, 
a super special.


five! hand cut and a painted badges
each measuring approx 2.5cm square

and not to leave on a negative note
of course you can wear them 
in many other ways including

till next
