A MNr began the thread when she came across This monstrosity

Someone else googled and found it in this shop.

Please can you lot email the shop? I have sent an email explaining why they need to remove it from their stock. Can you lot too?

Prom could it be This collective of female designers and artists

They're called Homeworks. They have a wide collection of work by a group of women who appear to trade together under one umbrella...lots of craft fairs etc.

It is off their facebook page now.

They have removed my post from their facebook page. But they also appear to have removed the plaque from their website.

Anyone got any answers?

MrsMushroom, I don't think it's made by the Homeworks people you linked to. It looks mass-produced to me. I suspect the ebay person is right.

It's here too: http://www.alligatorpear.co.uk/wooden-message-plaques-a-lady-says-no.html

They have taken it down? Victory is ours.

Now to keep a look out for any more of them/any other misogynistic bullshit and kick up a similar fuss.

Yes, this is how I spend my free time (and even some of my working time).

MrsMushroom Wed 27-Feb-13 17:27:05

Yes...let's unearth them all....and if we can find the factory so much the better. We can do them a favour by letting them know how offensive the sign is. And suggest some more suitable homilies to use.

CardinalRichelieu Wed 27-Feb-13 17:32:31

See, probably no point in bothering with the factory as they will just keep making them if they get orders from shops etc. Let's just be strident whenever we see them on sale.

MrsMushroom Wed 27-Feb-13 17:44:17

Yes I was thinking though, they've already lost one client...in Dasiy Interiors...but they must sell them all over the world I suppose.

LuisGarcia Wed 27-Feb-13 17:56:59

They've lost 2 clients. The alligator pear one seems to have been withdrawn too.

LineRunner Wed 27-Feb-13 19:34:28

I think to be fair to the factory we ought to suggest some better slogans that people will buy.

Ok, well I've found and emailed a couple more today, then found this.

I want to know who the manufacturer is.

Temporal Interiors are withdrawing it from sale and say they have forwarded the complaints to the manufacturer.

Wow that's a fantastic response from Little Timbers.
Think I'll go and buy something from them now!
