Shop Life: The Infamous Lemon
Liz and I were in the shop one day, chatting with a customer who is the sweetest lady, when she looked over the counter and laughed.
"It's the infamous lemon!" she cried and we all chuckled.
|The Infamous Lemon - With a name like that, he needed a mug shot.|
She wasn't the first person to mention this lemon, though. Some of our other customers have also joked or wondered about the lemon in our small wares pictures. It's a source of amusement for Liz and I, so we'll tell you.
Once upon a time Phantastic Phinds used a ruler to gauge the size of objects in photographs for the website. It allowed customers to get a quick reference of size, but it didn't look so nice. So Angela was home one night, photographing something for her own use, and she used a lemon as the size gauge. It looked so cute that we bought some faux-duce (fake produce) and began using apples and a lemon to show how large or small something is. For example, if there is a picture of an object and the lemon is towering over it, you know that the item is very small.
The customer really made my day by naming the lemon. I will not always think of him as the infamous lemon, because things are just so much better when they have a story. And it's a reminder that no matter how small or seemingly insignificant a thing is, it always has a story. Let's take a look of some of the lemon's best moments.
Isn't our lemon a star? :-)
