I must begin by saying I love love love Anthropologie. Their merchandise selection is divine and I could blindfold myself and randomly choose clothing from the place and be thrilled with my choices. Sure, they’re on the high side of my do-able pricing, but they’ve got some great shit.
So the latest Anthropologie catalog hits my desk and I immediately start thumbing through it after my squealing ceases. When I came to this little item, I thought, that would be a great little summery type blouse. Read further, it’s $278. That’s US dollars, not crazy Monopoly money. Well that seems high. I know how much this stuff is wholesale, that’s my job after all. $278 is like a $230 markup. Seems like crazy talk.
What do I do? That’s right. Knock that shit off. Oh yeah baby. Theirs: made in the USA at $278. Mine: made in USA at $6 (and that’s buying material retail). Theirs: done and on the shelves. Mine: not quite done…but getting there. Stay tuned.
