Yesterday, I spent the day helping a friend at a local craft show. Before the show started I strolled around to check out the competition. I noticed one lone stationery vendor. Oh excuse me…”stationary” vendor. The vendor in question, had a cute little chalkboard sign stationed outside of their tent with the words “FINE STATIONARY” in big bold letters.
At first, I thought it was a mistake and walked over to help a fellow paper vendor out. As I got closer to the tent, I noticed stationery wasn’t spelled wrong once on the chalkboard but throughout the vendor’s tent. “Fine Stationary”. Hmm…no mistake.
At that point, I figured it didn’t make sense to say a word. In fact, I grew concerned the person might not appreciate me pointing out the misspelling.
Oh well…doesn’t look good when you don’t know how to spell the name of your product.
