Lion and Dino - Upside and Downside

One of the benefits of working at Tapir and Friends is that my office gets to look like this. Unfortunately we don't carry these products, though. The cardboard cutout lion was found at a garage sale, and the inflatable T-rex was on my list of things to order for the store when I discovered that the manufacturer was selling them to my potential customers online for the same price I would have to pay for them. It's all part of our changing world. The lines between wholesale and retail have become permanently skewed. Navigating between the Scylla and Charybdis of China and a diminished customer base has become part of any online retailer's daily routine. I'm glad I get a chance to live with such endearing office-mates, though. It helps.
