My friend who attends FIDM had a field trip assignment to go to a store in DTLA called Loft Appeal - I've never been & decided to tag along. The store was amazing, full of eclectic furnishings & furniture, even things from sets of movies & television shows. The prices ranged from surprisingly inexpensive to surprisingly stupid expensive.
The cool thing was that almost everything was for sale...except for one frame that I wanted that didn't have a price tag on, the dialogue went like this:
Steph: "This didn't have a price, I was wondering if you could tell me how much it was"
Sales Associate: "Sorry, if it doesn't have a price then I don't know how much it is."
Steph: "...Um. But isn't there a computer you could look into or even a booklet with your inventory?"
SA: "No, if it doesn't have a price, then I don't know what to charge you. You'll have to come back."
Steph: "But then it won't have a price on it when I return."
Needless to say I left empty-handed.
