It may be an exaggeration but these products are not bought by people on welfare, or even the lower middle class.

i've seen people shop in whole foods with ebt cards. they had more expensive stuff in their cart than i had in mine.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I don't like the damn chocolate...and the path from making something on your stove to becoming a skilled craftsman isn't that quick,and when it's on your own dime,can cost you,big time.Bottom line,it's still all about real estate here.
G*d is in the details...

I'm glad to hear a professional say that. I see the list of their clients and I feel like I'm going crazy

There is a product called "Beard Oil." Who knew? And it can be twee too -

Dude No.1 is inspired by the man in my life.

Fresh, spicy, and woody, this fragrance is the new classic manly scent that will make you want to get close. With Virginia cedarwood, green coriander and pink peppercorn. This formula is 100% natural and uses only essential oils, organic hemp seed oil and American jojoba oil.

Because your man deserves the safest ingredients to scent his delicate face.

Fascinating.

And this, something I like to call the Cucumber King's Lament -


And every remotely ambitious artisan sooner or later finds himself making trade-offs of one sort or another. Early on, Jones had to accept that as a New York pickle-maker he would need to compromise his locavore mission when he discovered that in this region cucumbers grow only three months of the year. "Friends said, 'Dude, you make pickles. You can't not produce for three-quarters of the year.' It was a hard thing to wrestle with in my mind."

Does anybody else find the very idea of beard oil disgusting?

I do. But then I find beards disgusting.

And I'm with you -- the line around the block for Bi-Rite isn't only filled with real money. And actually, at least out here, a lot of times the people working at the one shop are the ones buying at the other. It's just that they spend all their money on this stuff.

That convinced me. Deb and I are heading for Smorgasburg on Saturday (unless it rains buckets)and we'll bring our cameras. We love to walk around Coney Island taking pictures of weird stuff but it appears that we have found the Land of Oz closer to home.
