Another Yarn Shop Loses A Customer

Ugh I wish all these unhinged “craftavists”, “persisters” and “resisters” would just put a sock in it for ten minutes...hand knitted of course.  A store I previously used to enjoy shopping in went political on their Facebook page....It never occurs to the “fianacial wizards” that own these small businesses that every time they shoot off their big mouths about politics, they lose customers.  Another shop I used to frequent started playing National Public Radio in the shop instead of music.  Gee that really makes for a pleasant shopping experience...not.  Listening to some liberal venting their hate and “tolerance” as you pick out your sweater yarn.   Yeah not going to happen :) There’s too many other places for me to get yarn from.  With any luck these “craftavists” will wear themselves out over the next  6 1/2 yrs.  We can only hope.

Oh here’s a little kick back from me. If this “triggers” you, put on your pussy hat and head off to your safe space.

It is sad that businesses now feel the need to be political. I remember "back in the day" when they were just focused on providing a good product to their customers. I don't shop at places based on what they believe, and I don't want to be fed their beliefs along with their services. If they become political I will just quietly leave and take my business elsewhere. And it goes for both sides of the aisle.

It’s going to be 8 yrs. of hysterics and theatrics all in the name of “art” or “craftivism”. It’s nauseating. The Quilt Museum in Lowell MA had a “display” a while back named “Threads of Resistance”. It could have more aptly named “Liberal Women Having a Post Election Hissy Fit”. I’ll never go to that place again. When the Tea Party was prominent did they have a “Threads of Patriotism” exhibit??? Not hardly. Hit these big mouths in their bank accounts and just stop shopping at their businesses. It will just give them something else to piss and moan about. :)

Love your attitude. I hope you informed the places why you were not returning to their shops. A call or e-mail can be quite effective especially if you have friends who will also stop their patronage. Going quietly is not my style. I would rather kick and scream.

Hey Suzi :). I sent them an email telling them I was saddened to see they felt compelled to go political on their Facebook page and that they lost me as a customer. No response. Just reaffirms to me I made the right decision by never going back. I deleted my positive review of the shop on Yelp. A friend also contacted them and the response from them to her bordered on idiotic. They made claims that they are apolitical....Really? I don’t remember them pushing free speech and protests during the miserable Obama years.
