i’m jealous of amy santoferraro

One of my favourite ways to spend a Saturday afternoon is poking around a thrift shop. It’s like looking for a treasure… buried deeply in a whole bunch of other crap. But, every now and then you find something special, and in the case of American artist Amy Santoferraro, a whole truck load of special somethings. Her solo exhibition titled Just Visit is an homage to all of these weird and wonderful orphans. She has created a lovely 5 minute stop-motion animation that features all of her finds {and has great music}. But don’t go home yet! Head over to the Adopt-a-Surprise shelf and buy one of the stars from the film {very sweetly wrapped I might add}. Hm, maybe next time I’ll just skip the thrift shop, and head straight to Amy’s show!

‘Keeping true to catch and release practices, it’s time to let go. Some of these objects have been with me forever, some just a couple of weeks, but all of them have boasted some degree of promise or beauty to me. I ask that you blindly take them on, not knowing, but trusting that they will do something for you too. They were just visiting.’

~ Amy Santoferraro

    ANF 鈥嬧€媋ffirme avoir am茅lior茅 les probl猫mes d’inventaire en Q2, et il s’attend 脿 encore baisser le niveau des stocks en Q3. Il va essayer 脿 l’avenir pour maintenir les niveaux de stocks plus maigres. Il estime que cela permettra de chasser les tendances plus efficacement. Un probl猫me avec ce raisonnement est que les meilleurs magasins sont trend setters, pas connu de tendance disciples. Depuis ANF envisage d’锚tre un chasseur, il sera toujours derri猫re les tendances. La palette de couleurs d’ANF est trop sombre. Personne ne veut 锚tre plus d茅prim茅s, alors que l’茅conomie est d茅j脿 assez d茅primant. Il a quelques couleurs vives, mais la plupart de ses offres les plus color茅s donner une impression un "ringard". Les adolescents veulent 锚tre 芦cool禄.
