Speaking of XANADU's glitter-ball frenzy.... here is mine!
Three see-through rubber superballs filled with pink, green and white glitter - how could I forget them when I was doing my purchases blog?
They were bought at the MOMA shop in New York.
Museum shops aren't my favourite entity at the moment. Today I heard that my second attempt to work in a museum shop has come to nothing. First the National Army Museum, now the Museum of London. Despite both acknowledging my wide range of retail experience they both wanted people who had Museum retail experience.
On my two visits to the National Army Museum both times there were no assistants to be seen on the shop floor. On my recce of the Museum of London there were noticeable areas - postcards, bookshelves, gift shelves - where the stock had been sold and just left empty.
If that's what denotes museum shop experience I am willing to drop my experience to their level.
