I always knew that there is an Anthropologie store near my office. I successfully avoided it for the first seven weeks of my internship, but today, I gave in to the voice in my head that was saying, “Haley!!! Go look at the pretty things and spend your entire life savings on candles and hand lotions!”
After a four-minute walk (too close… #danger), I arrived in the gorgeous, scent-filled store. Adorable French music was playing, perfectly packaged candles burning and the staff was almost too nice.
I would decorate my entire home, and restock my wardrobe, in this store if I could.
(On a related note, if someone is feeling super generous and wants to donate a large sum of money for me to shop there, I probably wouldn’t turn it down.)
So, I was browsing around and had a few good laughs at their items. Like I said, I am obsessed with the majority of their products. There are a few, though, that are a little bit crazy. They are beautifully packaged, totally Insta-worthy, so I’m sure a lot of people buy them. But… I have to point out a few that are insane.
(I would totally still want them, if I had a money tree, or won the lottery or something.)
- Pencil, $10
Literally a pencil. For $10. Do you think it does your work for you? Maybe it lights up!
- Block of wood with some holes, $34
This is actually an adorable idea. I’ll be at Home Depot.
- Scary dog stapler, $24
So you have to crush the dog in order to staple anything? This is concerning.
- Scary dog door knocker$19.95
My concern here is the same as the previous. Where do you pick it up? I don’t understand. I’m not seeing any tasteful, classy ways to approach this issue.That would be a hilarious social experiment, though. Test where people hold the knocker.
- Clothespin, $8
Walmart sells these, too! $4.44 for a pack of 50. But $8 for one seems totally reasonable.
