The story of Shopping Cart Annie really is amazing - what a free-spirit and generous person.

500 dollar socks. Yeesh. I'm more impressed that people are willing to burn their money in this economy.

the girls who make those socks were art students. now they do au couture. if they can get $500, why not? they proberly sell wholesale for like $150-$250. to me they look like junk. not too much different than $500 jeans or $200 t shirts, or $1000 haircuts. think of all the gold or real things of value one can buy w/$. but thats their business. theres a customer for everything!!
