Thankyou for your comments, after reading them and re-reading my blog post, I apologise if I sounded way too grumpy. I have never been great with expressing my thoughts into words. That's one of the reasons why I studied photography. I had been talking to friends about the similarity of some products seen recently, by different people / companies. And wonder how the original creator feels about the mutation of their idea or design. Also, how people can simultaneously create something with no knowledge of the other. The internet is a great tool for sharing ideas, creating and seeking inspiration but unfortunately people do get ideas stolen.
At the moment I am finding the balance of running a shop in person, maintaining it on-line and being a Mum a little tricky. As you may know Arthur heads to school next year, so time with him is precious. I wish our shop could be open more than 3 days a week, and that sometimes Arthur wasn't around when the shop is supposed to be open. But for the time being it is how we're running things and after all it is called Arthur's Circus for a reason. So to Anthony, Lisa, Kate, Clare, Jessi and LotelIT shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and a little something will be coming your way. I really appreciate your feedback, though I still can't figure out of 14,000+ views of one item in our shop, why no one has bought it. ;-)
