Why on earth would anyone spend money on this stuff? And AIBU to think those who do are incredibly strange people?

Or am I just a snob?

You've gotten me started on one of my favourite subjects, The Bradford Exchange.

I take great pleasure in finding the most hideous items that are available on it's website.

Off to have a look now.

I think, if I had to choose one to own, the baby monkey would be it. The others are just, just... <<tails off>>

From the baby monkey, I made the mistake of following the link to Blessings Times Three, under the heading "Customers who bought...also bought..."

I dare you !!

I wouldn't dream of judging <halo gleams>.

Am sitting on my hands having just been accused of being jealous of someone who wears silk flowers wink

hysterical ! Do you think any of these things are "designed" with a sense of irony, knowing there's a rather, well, special sort of person out there waiting to buy them ?

<<aware the Lifelike Doll Collectors take it all Very Seriously>>

SoupDragon Tue 07-Jul-09 16:17:02

Who could you possibly hate enough to remember them with this

KingRolo Tue 07-Jul-09 16:17:07

I love how they say 'It lights up!' as though it's a good thing.

Thunderduck Tue 07-Jul-09 16:18:45

I hate Thomas Kinkade:Painter of shite.

SecretNinjaChipmunk Tue 07-Jul-09 16:19:36

KingRolo Tue 07-Jul-09 16:19:36

I'd like to be remembered with this musical egg

SoupDragon Tue 07-Jul-09 16:19:56

Along the same lines as "It plays music!", Thunderduck

whatmaisieknew Tue 07-Jul-09 16:20:12

I can't follow any more links in case I don't sleep tonight ! Imagine working all day long in the Bradford Exchange despatch warehouse, packaging all that crap for a living...
