Anti-depressants – Lipstick and Flowers

Lipstick Flower

Lipstick Flower

George Ball compares the economic blues fixing powers of lipstick to those of flowers in his blog post at Heronswood Voice:
Similarly, in the fashion industry, The Great Depression is noted to have given a boost to the then recently hatched lipstick industry. Like candy and movies, it was something inexpensive that lifted women’s spirits. Cut flowers grown at home rival lipstick in the “feel good” department”.

It’s worth it to read the whole thing, and while you’re there subscribe to receive an email whenever George muses and waxes. It will be worth your while in my opinion.

It is very easy to get caught up in our operations, our inventory, our stuff, and forget why the customer is buying in the first place.

Whatever the reason it is all about making them feel good. Flowers or lipstick – make the experience one that will make the choice easy. They probably already have more lipstick than they need anyway. And you can never have enough flowers, can you?

  1. I’m a frequent reader of Mr. Ball’s blog and enjoy what he has to say. In his latest post, he neglects to mention the initial costs of such things as site preparation and soil amendments for first use gardens.

  2. Wow. So much thought into flowers 🙂 I wouldn’t have thought it possible.

  3. Thanks for commenting Flowers. You are the first international commenter.
