A standing ovation and much respect to those Trend Setters whose Idea or Creation catches on and is appreciated by the masses so that they may prosper from it... and of coarse the highest form of flattery is imitation and that will also come if something is popular and appreciated enough that everyone wants one or was inspired by it... if you can't get the Real Deal there will be Reproductions of whatever is "IN" and the supply of the authentic can't keep up with the demand for it... or the price will become too high for the average folks to get the Original, so there's a niche for the affordable alternative too. Things that will get folks digging in their Attics & Storage Sheds to pull out dusty forgotten items that now have a National Market or perhaps even an International one!?
And what Trends have I wished were "Out" forever and I wouldn't care if I never saw again? The wearing of sagging pants that exposes the Chonies... looks uncomfortable too having to walk in such a way that they don't fall down around the ankles!? *LOL* The wearing of Pajamas & Bedroom Slippers in Public, it just makes a person look depressed as if they were too "down" to bother getting dressed before wandering out the door? *LOL* Sterile, Stark looking Contemporary Decor... Minimalism can look very Charming or Zen, but if it looks Cold and devoid of personality, like a Hotel Room or Doctor's Office Lobby, it is unwelcoming & uncomfortable to me, I never want to stay long in an environment like that. Art that looks like my Kindergarten aged G-Kid could have produced it and somebody paid a fortune for... I just never know what to say??? *LOL* Cheesy Southwestern Decor targeted for Tourists to our State... for God's sake, there's enough authentic Beautiful Southwestern Decor and Art people, find a Local and we'll be glad to load you up with stuff that won't be embarrassingly tacky!!! *Gack!* I do Love some types of Kitsch, and if any type of it is your "Thing" then Okay... perhaps what makes me gag is exactly the Found Treasure you were seeking... to each his own I always say... there's probably a Market for everything under the Sun after all!!! *LOL* And what do I think or Hope will be "IN" and is an upcoming Trend for 2012 my Friends? Why, naturally anything I'm trying to get rid of and purge from the Bohemian Valhalla Residence of coarse... wanna buy some good junk... ummmm... I mean Trendy Junque? *Winks*
