Pretty hefty stuff going on in Fat Buddha it seems, the can deals are nice. Reminds me (almost) of being in Barcelona where monty only sets you back £1.70...

Shakewell is run by writers, for writers. Fat Buddha is just some guy who has nothing to do with the culture making money.

Hence "fake ass graff store"

dont give me all that elitist pish, thats why kids are intimidated coming in to these places, guys like you think you need to serve years before you can comment on it.

so, the only places that can sell paint need to be staffed & owned by painters, what a pile of shit.

you sound like the kind of guy who says football pundits have no right to an opinion cause they never played football.

maybe book-shops should only be staffed by people who write books, fruit & veg shops should only be staffed be farmers.

your in the real world now, so wake up

I am a kid, im sixteen. So that point is clear.

Im not saying that you don't have the right to sell paint, im just saying that you are doing it entirely because you see a niche in the market.

Whereas Danny has been a writer for years and cares about graff in a way you never will.

Can you explain to me why someone who doesn't write (i have this on very good authority) sells so many graff related products, what compels you to towards this type of market if not the money?

"This is not graffiti"- this is selling an image.

Next time you are in Starbucks buying your latte espresso mocha skinny decaf, ask them-
'are you coffee growers who have brought their wares to the store to be sold', if they arent and they are just plain old shop workers, you stand up and tell them
'you have no right to make money from this as you have no love for the coffee, coffee should only be for the people in my little coffee club, as we are the appreciators and protectors of the faith'

sorry, but you way off the mark, not going to argue with a 16yr old, stick ot shakewell and keep the faith gouranga.

You didn't answer my question though, Why do you sell stuff for writers?

I'm not saying that you have to write so run your shop, but we both know it wouldn't do your image any good if you admitted that your shop has nothing to do with the culture.

I don't have an image, i don't have an image to protect either.

If a 16 yr old kid thinks whatever about me, who cares.

Anyway lighten up and chill, football's on

From what im hearing, buddha is better thn shakies - closer,cheaper,more range. So why are you still complainin about it.
So what if they dont know that much bout graff - They will learn things in time to come.

Thanks for the good words.

Not sure if i agree we are better than shakies, just different.

If you want the cheapest paint at 12 on a sunday, 6.30pm on a friday, 10.10 on a monday then we are open, thats us.
If you want specific colours, then we carry 1300 cans of Monster at all times, then about another 700 between MTN and Belton, then thats us.
If you want the conveniance of a city centre store then thats us.
Finally, if you want the cheapest delivered paint, then thats us again.

BUT, if you want expert advice and someone who is known in the scene and knows the scene backwards then Shakies wins every time, impossible to compete on that front and we dont try to.
There is plenty of space for a couple of us do the same thing, but from different angles and catering for different customers.

Hey,

The Chains there for the we dicks, the sound guys we know just go and help themselves and theres no hassle.

For the edinburgh guys, we are looking to open a store through in the capital middle of next year, so if you know of any good locations then pass it on and ill give it a look.

I know the Burgh, used to have the flip shop, but the way i see it,

Goodstead doesnt do that much, ive not been in there for about 4 months so it may have changed.

Focus don't want to do it anymore, Sibs said it doesn't sell for them.

Applejack, i know ronnie and jackie and cant imagine they carry a lot of stock.

Underground solution, not sure but will pop in next time i'm through.

But theres defo space for a fat buddha in the capital city, just got to find the right spot
