THE proprietor of a shop selling tasteful artisan gifts has realised it is all just so fucking irrelevant.
35-year-old Susan Traherne’s shop ‘Beeswax’ sells beads, enamel mugs with animals on, wooden board games and a host of other hand-made tat.
It also carries special stationary, lovely pencils and expensively-produced magazines with Maggie Gyllenhaal on the cover.
She said: “I thought I was creating a little cocoon of quasi-pastoral niceness that would promote local craftspeople while also bringing joy to customers who like nice things.
“But actually it’s just a load of fucking wank.”
Picking up a box of retro-style badges with images of 70s kids TV presenters on them, Traherne said: “Shit, shit, shit.”
Throwing the box across the room, she picked up a hat stand used to display knitted beanie hats and brandished it like a weapon.
She said: “Nobody else comes in here. I’m getting some cardboard together in a heap and then I’m going to burn it down.”
