Launched in 1988 in Sydney, the Remo General Store mission was simple.
“To seek out and celebrate Quality & Passion in people and merchandise gathered together from all over the world.”
I really miss the actual store they used to have in Oxford Street and the funny catalogues that arrived in the letterbox a couple of times a year (I still have a few kicking around in one of my “Boxes of cool stuff I need to keep even though I don’t quite know why”).
Onion Goggles. They might work… it sounds plausible.
I have a foolproof, no-cry onion method. Get someone else to chop them.
Drumstick pencils. If you want to be the most annoying person in the office.
Splayds. And don’t you dare call them sporks or I will reach out of your computer
and slap you.
Remember test patterns? You don’t see them much anymore since TV manages to broadcast drivel all hours of the day and night. Don’t TV stations WANT a break? I know I do. I also want a t-shirt with a test pattern on it.
Now the store is pretty much an online phenomonen with nearly 46,000 customers from around the world. You can place an order at their Bondi HQ and receive a free gift, but most ordering these days is done online.
To be honest, I usually crack it with the site after about 20 minutes because it is pretty full on and I just want simple. Simple, simple, simple. <wisecrack all you want, I can take it.>
