Artsy Fartsy

by Jessie K on April 22, 2014

bike-week-daytona-beach-vintageWhile on vacation in Daytona a few weeks ago, we came across a store called “Artsy Fartsy Antiques and Such.” Or something like that.

Wow. What a name. Doesn’t it make you wanna stock up on primitive wreaths and vintage milk jugs and such?

What I’d like to know is what is it like having “Artsty Fartsy” on your resume. Imagine reading the following sentence on an potential employee’s application: “From 2006 to 2009, I was the regional floor manager of Artsy Fartsy Antiques and Such in beautiful Daytona, Florida! I am confident I’d be a great asset to your thriving company!”

Wow, thinks the potential employer, with credentials like that, surely we can place this person somewhere really important. Hire him, stat.

But I bet no one ever forgets the name of that shop! I always though “Hoity Toities” was a good name for a plumbing company :)

So what’s going on *outside* your new house besides new chicks (human and otherwise) ?

I would hire them just because of the name.


(Yes, I try to remember to put my blog name on everything because I’m still doing mine, lol)
