THINGS WE DON’T SELL…..

 

Being a surf shop in a small seaside town we have been asked if we sell some strange things over the years. We thought we would share with you some of the ones that made us laugh…these were all serious requests….and some people were amazed that we didn’t actually sell these things……….

  • Radios
  • Kettles
  • Lighthouses
  • Studs for golf shoes
  • Lava lamps
  • Blow up pool with pump
  • Cigarette lighter
  • Sheets
  • velcro
  • coloured hairspray
  • hammocks
  • tennis racket grips
  • bait
  • bowling shoes
  • tea towels
  • darts
  • shoes with wheels
  • film
  • iron on patches
  • lanterns
  • tennis balls
  • fishing nets
  • flower leis
  • fairy wands
  • table cloths (although I did sell them a sarong to use as one)

Just a few more little beauties to add to this list…….

  • horse statues
  • lighter fluid...seriously
  • teaspoons...we are a tourist town I guess...
  • this is the best one yet...what size shovel should I buy for my kids to dig a hole on the beach...do we even sell shovels....NO...We could only smile at this...ah the joys of retail
  • rain hats
  • embroidery cotton
  • electrical tape
  • shower caps...I know it's hard to believe we don't sell them......especially with nice bubbles on them...

I haven't updated this for a while and still can't believe the things we get asked for...LOL...after this summer we can add these to the list...

  • Ear candles.....really
  • Mens shampoo & conditioner gift packs
  • Camping mattresses
  • Volley ball nets
  • Tie cords for speedo's...I think this is called a new pair of speedo's

And we got rung up for this request...

Do we sell gas bottle fittings... and the lady was surprised when I suggested the hardware for this.
