Stunning

clipart imago of a clothes rail

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 22 September 2021, boutique.

A thrifty supplier of rice,
For a change, thought he’d buy something nice,
In the fashion boutique,
He collapsed with a shriek,
When the manager told him the price.

        1. true. That’s something I have cared more and more about over the years. I look at what I reckon the profit margin is, I reckon mosrt shirts cost less than $1 to make, and… it’s surprising what you can do without.

  1. Many boutiques used to have Made in Canada labels, and the products were visibly of good quality, but now, most clothing is made abroad, the quality is low, and the prices went up anyway, so that is when I stopped going to these stores.
