i definitely have that mentality where to me, running a shop is of course super easy. i know this isn’t true in reality, but my fantasy life absolutely involves me owning and somehow casually running a niche occult bookshop, or cheesemonger, or somehow both.
so if i were to give you the cash to open a shop selling goods of some sort, WHAT would it be?
Bit obvious for a DiSser but I’d love to run a record shop. Maybe specialising in Electronic music. Yeah, that would be cool.
I’m going to open a shop opposite that only sells circular food
i would call it Glitchy Ronco
I already have a name I’m afraid Xylo. It will be called Vinyl Richie’s
Easily a bike shop. Would love to retrain as a bike mechanic, and I’ve looked into it, but ohgosh I don’t think I’d be able to cope with the paycut. Perhaps at some point in the future.
Anyway. Yes, a bike shop. Specialising in high-end endurance road bikes and hand-built wheels. Coffee shop on the side, obviously.
this is a solid pun and i yield
I would call it Words & Curds
Haha. It’s been my DJ name, given by a friend to me years ago.
When we were kids we went to some geezer’s (friend of a friend) exhibition in Canary Wharf. He had seen cubism and liked it but thought he would do it with triangles. He called it deltaism. We were given triangular playing cards when we left. They were not practical.
I can find no evidence of this at all.
NO THANKS. No retail life for me.
I’d open a really specialist place for something I have no knowledge of. Like a Hinges & Brackets shop where people would come in and be like “excuse me, do you know what bracket I need for this and do you have one in stock?” and I’d be like “no idea, mate. sorry”
Welcome to Well Rounded!
Want a doughnut? Packet of malteasers? Scotch egg?
Nice pancake? You’ve come to the right place!
really like that you revisited your post to expand on this
yeah this is kind of what i imagine. essentially running a shop as a hobby with no need for profit
hoogy has been typing a long time. worried that he’s been working up a business plan
