Hey, does this look familiar?

Recently I joined the great unwashed and ventured to Chermside shopping center for a spot of highly agitated shopping. Being a pretty, folky things magpie I am drawn to Typo ... Ohhhh stationary and pens. I picked up one of their cards and it looked strangely familiar. I wonder if they have 'idea scouts' who pick and choose ideas to pilfer from markets. Maybe they just came up with the idea themselves, but I still feel a bit gypped.

Some of my cards ...

Man, that sucks so bad! I hate when great little ideas are pilfered like that. I'd feel really gypped too. Did you shoot them an email?

I don't really know what I'd say in an email? They're not eating into my meek little markety business, so I think I'll just grumble about it on blogger!

Oh no :( ... This makes me mad and sad at the same time.
It happens so often everywhere.
Well I know who's cards I'll be buying ...

PS It kind of reminds me of being a teenager with little sisters. I can hear my mum's voice "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" blah blah blah ... I still wanted to rub their faces in the dirt

I have to agree with kitty boo boo's mumma :) yours are way cuter/funnier/ ironic anyways .. and I don't think you could say much unless it was an exact replica ... such is life ,,, maybe we need to mass market you :) best le xox
