Customers suck

So, this hyper-cute painting of Stitch reading the Ugly Duckling was hanging in one of the shops on WDW Magic Kingdom's Main Street. Of course, even though we know we probably couldn't afford it, we asked the clerk about it.

"It's not for sale!" he answered. "But," he continued, sounding mildly irritated (or at least as peeved as you could sound at Dizzy World without getting the old heave-ho from Mickey), "people keep asking about it!" As if this were the most perplexing thing in the world. Um, Dizzney Dude, the painting is hanging in a shop. When you put something out in a shop, people tend to jump to the conclusion that, you know, it's for sale.

I know the feeling! We have some thrift shops here that have stuff for display only- helllloooo! If you want to sell stuff, then why not use stuff that IS for sale to decorate? People always want the good stuff that isn't for sale.

I went to the local shop today and lo and behold they had a new mug!
It's very tall and skinny and has a lovely dark blue painterly Stitch picture on it with a tiny handle, it was £7. I also found a Stitch American Football, do you already have that?
I've bought them and taken photos for you, I'll add them in when I can find my cable.

Did you see the picture of the American Gemini Stitch mug I posted the other day?

I shall add them in asap, oooh yes I saw that mug, that was great! I wonder who they had for the other star signs?

I *do* have the football, thanks, but I would love one of those mugs! That's fantastic!

I don't know who else is on the astrology mugs, I need to get to a Disney store and check it out.

Aw, I'll keep the ball as it'll be fun to throw it around the garden now that the weather's warmer!
Hooray for the mug, I was really surprised to see a new one! I wonder if there is a special Disney Ceramics department and who comes up with all the different designs. I'll see if I can find a box to fit your two mugs in now, I definitely want to make sure they get there safely! I'll find a box, fit everything in and then email you with all the individual costs, etc :)

There was *some* Bolt stuff, but I don't remember a lot! Did you get the Bolt plushie they were offering from the Disney DVD club?

They had some kind of deal where if you got Cars and the Lilo & Stitch deluxe edition DVD you got a free Bolt plushie. Dunno if they have the same offer in Canada.

They should've put up a sign there: "Customers, look hard now, because it's for display only. :("
