    you probably need loads of cash upfront to pay for all your buys with the hopes of selling it in a reasonable period of time all while paying rent, employees, utilities, etc. if something doesn't sell and it's sitting, you're fucked. i assume most of these boutiques aren't multimillion dollar companies with cash piles everywhere so a few mistakes here and there, can be a pretty bad deal for everyone involved.

    This.

    Cash flow and account payable cycles around seasonal goods make a boutique VERY hard to run successfully.

    can someone explain bon iver to me. i went to their show in richmond a couple weeks ago and it was just awkward looking white nerds/hipsters. same with sufjan stevens. if one more kid with a pedophile mustache comes up to me to talk about his photography im going to commit a spree killing.

    ps: bon iver is ok but their latest album sounds so 80s to me.

    Both sound kinda terrible to see as live acts. Even Iron & Wine was too soporific for me to really enjoy in concert.

    ^^ I completely agree. Sufjan and Bon Iver are two acts that I would much rather spend listening on my own time, in places I'm in the mood to listen to them. Listening to Sufjan or Bon Iver in a venue with a ton of other people sucks. Lately the only shows I've gone to are punk/hardcore shows, they're a ton of fun.

    Speaking of, anyone going to Converge/pg99 tomorrow night in Richmond?

    I think 1969 was referring to the fact LN-CC is buying Lanvin/Givenchy/etc instead of Schneider which is a way more reasonably priced label, I might be wrong though.

    I'm aware of how difficult a business can be to run, was more wondering aloud about the details of how people make their decisions. EDIT- What Sipang said....

    Bon Iver's newest is a slow burn, I really have to be in the right mood/place to fully enjoy it. Who's vibing on the newest Beirut album? I love East Harlem, may be the best song they've put out.

    Went through SZs WAYWT this week and after seeing ROs on every page, I checked the usual stores stil to see if they still had last season's high tops at half off. I found a pair at Blackbird this morning, but gave myself the afternoon to decide if I wanted another pair of sneakers.

    I check the site a few minutes ago only to find that my size sold in the past few hours. FUUUU

    I never really got into Beirut. I mean, I recognize their talent and sound, but got burned out on it so quickly. Just completely uninteresting to me, the whole ethnic indie fusion sound is entirely bland. However, I haven't listened to their newest so I can't comment on it.
