Bizarrely, someone involved in the children’s show ‘Sarah and Duck,’ which I narrate, recently found a coat with my name on it in a secondhand shop. It’s the coat I wore as Theseus in the ‘Dream.’ So it’s back in my possession after all these years, which is rather strange and wonderful.

Growing up, I had an insane crush on Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys.
If I were to play somebody who ran a fish and chip shop, I would not work in a fish and chip shop for three months. Staring at chips is not going to help me in my performance.

I don’t have any writing routine. Sometimes I go to my local coffee shop and I write there for some hours. Apart from that, I am traveling most of the time. I write in airports, trains, hotel rooms… I can write anywhere.
But, the thing is, since I always had my own little shop and direct access to the public, I’ve been able to build up a technique without marketing people ever telling me what the public wants.
The way I shop and the way I engage with my wardrobe, those experiences don’t come to life on Amazon’s platform.

I’m always traveling, so I tend to online shop. My go-to sites are Net-a-Porter and Matches. I recently moved to N.Y.C. and frequently shop at Sur La Table for my kitchen; Flair home collection, Aedes de Venustas for all my favorite home fragrances.
I mean, if someone wants to buy a dog that’s their business, but I would definitely say adopt, don’t shop.
There was a story that I was in a shoe shop and that I threw a pair of flip flops at the wall, shouting, ‘I can’t believe how overpriced these are!’ I thought, ‘Gosh, if I’m gonna take a big stand on something I would hope it would be for more than flip flops!’
I like to see a tidy shop, and I want to see my investments well managed.
If you listen to ‘Pod Save America’, which is run by former Obama staffers and Democratic party partisans, you’ll be exposed to ads for home delivery of everything from gourmet meals to underwear, presumably in the belief that you’re too busy being fabulous to go near a shop.
If a lobbyist sets up shop, or a lawyer, in which they’re receiving income through what is something like a tax loophole so that it’s not counting as corporate income, that is what this is counting as a small business.
The minute I stepped foot on the shop floor and started serving in a retail environment, I knew it was the career for me. I was a shop assistant for just one day, and I thought, ‘This is it. This is the rest of my life. This is all I want to do.’
I always feel with a vintage shop they’ve picked the best bits to show you whereas with charity shops you can find a real gem. My mum is amazing at it, she has hawk eyes, so I go with her and follow her lead!
I have half a cutlery shop’s worth of spoons in my pocket at all times designated for tasting.
I’ve worked as someone’s deputy, and now it’s time for me to run something. It’s time for me to run my own shop.

Some people see what I don’t see – I’m just so happy to do all of this just being myself. The same thing what you get on the TV, you will see in your local Asda or the pound shop.
I was shocked the first time the paps got me in America – when a video camera is put in your face and you’re asked questions and 15 people are walking backwards taking your picture. I was coming out of a pizza shop and had my daughter with me.
It’s funny because from the time I was a kid, I knew what I was going to do. What’s even funnier is that my dad and my grandfather didn’t want me to work at the pawn shop, but I was deadset on it.
I know how I shop and how I am inspired to buy things, and the majority of it is from Instagram. I look at people like Yasmin Sewell and Leandra Medine from the Man Repeller, as well as the countless models that have really cool street style, for inspiration all the time.
I think London is one of the best cities to shop in.
I was brought up west southwest coast of Scotland and my mother and father had a music shop, and so I was surrounded by pianos and drums and guitars, and music, of course.

I have no interest in making music that’s built for an antique shop.
For me, wearing a tie is a pleasure, a recherche one but a pleasure nonetheless. You could say that I’m avoiding tie avoidance. My own gorgeous collection runs into hundreds and I buy them the way I buy books – I simply can’t pass a shop. I have loved them since I could spend my own money on them.
We used to have quirky weird bands that made dance music like the Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode and I think people have still got an appetite for that type of music-melody and darkness.

Well, I’m comfortable in all kinds of clothes – Indian, Western, casual, formal. I shop for them wherever I go.
Working in the shop has taught me how utterly ridiculous the female fear of knees is. It’s a bloody knee. It’s bone. We can’t control our knees, our knees are not our fault. We cannot let this continue, we have to abandon this ridiculous new obsession and set the knee free.
I’m a bit of a nerd, I wouldn’t mind working in a shop selling records, or having a radio show where I could play obscure singles.
I’ve rewritten a lot of the scripts I’ve done. ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’ was a complete rewrite, but I didn’t touch the dialogue. Essentially, I’m a very good editor.
I was discovered when I was 13 by an agent. I was standing outside a coffee shop in Gothenburg, my hometown, when I was approached.
I can’t replicate how I feel when that whistle goes on nights like that, knowing you’ve won it, that people are going home smiling. You don’t get that sat on my tractor in Plymouth or doing the shop in Tesco.
People learn to shop for churches; there is no loyalty to the church. They’re consumers being attracted to one product or another. I think it’s sacrilege, to tell you the truth, it really is.
Did I shop Kmart for clothing? No, I didn’t. But I loved that I could be totally involved in the hangtags, the buttons, the commercials and with the designers. Something in my head said ‘Yes.’ I was adventurous.

I’ve worked with and talked to poor people my entire life, being in the pawn shop business.

With any body shape it’s important to buy the right size and not be dictated to by size you think you are. Try on a bigger and a smaller size in the shop and see what fits visually. If you do have to go up a size, cut the label out, it’s just a number!
What’s crucial in a High Street store is a compelling reason for people to shop there. Shops must offer excellent customer service – and ‘theatre’ is a must.
I kind of look like I work in a Brooklyn coffee shop.
I joined a gym when I was 11, agreed to seeing a dietitian aged 15, and I remember being a teenager and going to shops, only to find that as a size 16, the clothes were hidden at the back or on different floors well away from the shop windows.
To shuck oysters, you’ll need an oyster knife, a handy tool with a sturdy handle and a short, rigid blade which you can pick up for about ten bucks in a kitchenware shop or fish market. A quick trip online will yield any number of videos and slide shows with step-by-step instructions on how to shuck an oyster.
I always have scarves handy; they’re my indulgence. I buy them at an L.A. shop called Lost & Found. I’ll spray one with loads of my Byredo Gypsy Water perfume, put it on and be like, ‘Ah, this feels good.’
In real life, I’m frugal. And, yes, I do love to shop at Marshall’s.

In my home country, there was a little shop with old books, but it was really in the countryside. You couldn’t find English books. I found this very avant-garde American art book that had information about Georgia O’Keeffe. I was very much impressed by her.
Well, I was very lucky. I was brought up west southwest coast of Scotland and my mother and father had a music shop, and so I was surrounded by pianos and drums and guitars, and music, of course.

I sang barber shop harmony and sort of got into performing. And it just came naturally. Then, when I was in college after the war, I did a play, ‘Pygmalion,’ by George Bernard Shaw. And from then on, I knew that’s what I wanted to do.
I think NATO is a Cold War product. I think NATO historically should have shut up shop in 1990 along with the Warsaw Pact; unfortunately, it didn’t.
We are all in this together. We want to have, I suppose, a single point of entry so that anyone coming near a disability service can get a very complete picture. Government needs to understand that picture, and we need to be able to offer somebody a one-stop shop.
The whole thing of clothes is insane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a shop. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn’t know which was which.
It’s nice to be home – I go to the same old sandwich shop around the corner, I go to the movies, I do what I like to do.
I might wear skinny pants one day; I might wear thrift shop pants the next day.
My father worked in a toy store. He used to give toys to the head of police when he would shop for his kids. One day the police head came in and told my father, ‘You’re on the list. Within two weeks, we’re going to come and arrest you.’ So within two weeks we got the heck out of there.
I read The Old Curiosity Shop before I began Blackwood Farm. I was amazed at the utter madness in that book.
I like me some Bape, you know. But I wear anything, to be honest. Adyn, Rick Owens, Givenchy, anything. I shop from everywhere.
I always bring cash for tips, and I never give less than $20. I used to work in a smoothie shop, so I know the value of a tip.
American rock was, and still is to some extent, a closed shop. REO Speedwagon, Toto, Boston, Foreigner all those bands, and I wouldn’t be able to tell which from which.
I will go to my grave believing that participation is best driven by the well-stocked shop window.
It’s harder to live the way I live. There are certain places I like to shop and eat where I simply don’t go. The paparazzi follow you.

Whoever labors for the happiness of those he loves elevates himself, no matter whether he works in the dreary shop or the perfumed field.

I’ve always had my own access to the public, because I started off making my clothes for a little shop, and so I’ve always had people buying them. I could always sell a few, even if I couldn’t sell a lot, and somehow my business grew because people happened to like it. I’m in a fortunate position.
Even before it opened its retail arm, Beigh was renowned among pashmina cognoscenti for the quality and complexity of the work produced in its workshop, a large, airy, sunlit rectangle of a room directly across from its second-floor shop.

I love to find a great vintage secondhand shop.
I couldn’t keep up with trends, I couldn’t really be fashionable. But I really loved clothes. And then I discovered a vintage shop, and realised that I could dress for myself rather than for an industry or trend.
Once, Naseeruddin Shah told me that the wafer shop was the best acting school that I could have attended. And I completely agree. I observed every customer very minutely and picked up some quirk or the other. Later, I used those experiences while playing different characters.

Inspired by London’s Savile Row, I wanted to bring an American curated experience for men to Madison Avenue… a place where they cannot only shop but explore.

I shop for clothes when I have time – early in the morning or late at night.
You know, ‘Cheers,’ you didn’t have to leave the bar because what they were saying in the bar was important. ‘All In The Family’ is the same rule. On ‘The Golden Girls’ they didn’t have to leave the table. And ‘Friends’ – the coffee shop. You can contain it if it’s interesting.
Yeah, you’d be surprised how many well known musicians have regular jobs. And yes, I’m a machinist. That’s how I made my guitars – at a machine shop.
A lot of what I’ve done has a rock edge, even going back to ‘Little Shop of Horrors.’
Parents’ evenings were a big event in our social calendar and school reports were taken very seriously; ‘C’ was not a grade my mother recognised. Her favourite shop was WH Smith, where every week there would be a new book or pen or calculator to buy. But most importantly, she was my best friend.
When I wasn’t working on Broadway, I worked in a Bat Mitzvah dress shop and was the Cinderella of the shop – always cleaning and vacuuming!

It was so exciting to go to the record shop and buy a piece of vinyl and hold it, read the liner notes, look at the pictures. Even the smell of the vinyl.

A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop.
I think I could walk into any music shop anywhere and with a guitar off the rack, a couple of basic pedals and an amp I could sound just like me. There’s no devices, customized or otherwise, that give me my sound.
I cannot do business. I cannot sit and say, ‘How are you, the weather’s great, how’s your golf?’ I’m like a bull in a china shop.
My big places to shop are Wal-Mart and Target – seriously. That is where half of my stuff comes from now.
If you’ve never lived outside London, and if you’ve always had a car, it’s difficult to understand how dire bus services undermine your standard of living: from being able to get to work, meet friends in the pub, get the weekly shop or take the kids on a day out.

Multinational companies exploit national differences to abuse their workers, to dodge their taxes and to ‘regulation shop’ as a means to avoid meeting their responsibilities.
On the other hand, I don’t understand the enthusiasm for everything in the antique shop that Grandma threw out. There, the sense of quality has declined; otherwise Grandma wouldn’t have thrown it out.
I don’t shop beats. That was never my method coming up. I think it’s very strange to have a CD of 30 or 40 beats and then just pick one.
If you’re a new artist, practice your art and share it. Set up shop somewhere, whether it’s a street corner or a coffee shop. I got my start in a coffee shop that didn’t even have live music. I wanted to play in coffee shops that did have live music, but I didn’t have an audience.
I didn’t understand the culture and what Starbucks was really about. It wasn’t a coffee shop. It was really a way of life… we suffer from thinking that since we have it in New York, or it won’t work in New York, that it won’t work some other place. That’s a discipline we keep trying to improve.
As the graying of the country continues its march forward, many retirees are now relocating to dense urban centers for the cultural and social opportunities, access to public transportation, and the ability to shop nearby for food and household needs without depending unduly on others.
Working in a store and being a shop assistant, if you don’t know what to do and you like fashion, I think it’s a great way of getting into the business because you do windows, cleaning, and everything. That was my school for two years, working in a shop, and that’s how I met people in magazines and designers.
I have always treated golf as a job. Back in the day it was in a pro shop. That win opened another door, it was a way to jumping on the stepping stone to where I am today. That’s the mental attitude you need to keep succeeding.
The first person besides my mother who believed in me was a man whose last name I never knew. He was my boss, the manager of Swenson’s Ice Cream shop.
I was a per diem floater in the same junior high school I went to. I sat in the office and made $42.50 a day, and whenever a teacher was absent, I’d substitute. I taught everything from English to auto shop.
Shop the peripheries of the supermarket; stay out of the middle.
I shop all over. I love to shop.
For my fragrance, I knew I wanted something sweet but with a different side to it. I have a lot of vanilla notes and bakery shop scents, but then I also have muskier notes that make it a bit edgier. It’s fun but also sophisticated.
If you go to a coffee shop or at the airport, and you’re using open wireless, I would use a VPN service that you could subscribe for 10 bucks a month. Everything is encrypted in an encryption tunnel, so a hacker cannot tamper with your connection.
The end of ‘City Lights’ makes me cry every time I see it – when Charlie Chaplin walks by the shop window and the once-blind girl brings him a flower and pins it to his lapel.

I had a 2-week courtship with a fellow student in the fiction workshop in Iowa and a 5-minute wedding in a lawyer’s office above the coffee shop where we’d been having lunch that day. And so I sent a cable to my father saying, ‘By the time you get this, Daddy, I’ll already be Mrs. Blaise!’
I don’t buy trends, because the pieces don’t last and I wind up never wearing them. That’s why I like to shop with my children; they’ll always tell me the truth.

When I told my friends and family that I was leaving Stars to open a burrito shop in Denver, they thought I was crazy, but not long after the success of the first Chipotle, I knew I had to open just one more, so I opened a second one on Colorado Boulevard, which turned out to be even busier than the first.
I love to shop. Clothes, electronics, and I love jewelry, especially yellow gold.
Wouldn’t it be great, if there was a one-stop shop where funny people could take their ideas and have them made?
Digital technology has thrown a closed shop wide open, and there are more people out there snapping away than ever before. Some of the pictures are bad, some of them are good, and many of them need some seasoning and direction.
Being fined for violating the rules of your league is not the same as a shop owner on Main Street paying to have a new sign hung in front of their business. One is a business expense, the other is a punishment.
Like many entrepreneurs, I started out in sales. I began at 14, when I got a job selling shoes and tennis rackets at a pro shop, and I’ve been selling one thing or another ever since.
Personalization can be very useful in some contexts but very harmful in others. Searching for pizza online, it’s probably OK to keep showing the same pizza shop as your No. 1 choice. I don’t see any big political consequences out of that.
People know I am not blind or have super strength, yet they believed in my characters in ‘Oppam’ and ‘Pulimurugan.’ It’s that belief of the audience that is also my greatest strength. Once that is gone, I might have to shut up shop and look for another job.
I usually shop online.
Thrift shopping is all about going into the thrift shop and having no expectation of what you might find.
I may be only a fish and chip shop lady, but some of these economists need to get their heads out of the textbooks and get a job in the real world. I would not even let one of them handle my grocery shopping.
When someone has told me they have the ‘world’s worst knees’ I’ve done all I can to find them a hem line that hides them. Luckily, as my shop is predominantly vintage, I have clothes from all decades and therefore pieces of all length.
There’s no reason anybody should be reading too much into ‘Thrift Shop.’ I just have because I have a 10-year-old and a 7-year-old who are really into going to lyric websites, hitting print, and printing lyrics for every song that’s popular.
On stage, I’m this figure, this actor, who does things that people aren’t used to seeing and I relish in that reaction. In real life, though, I play golf, I shop and I walk around with no makeup on and my hair in a ponytail. I may not be the typical middle-aged Joe, but I’m closer to normal than you think.
I think every woman in this country will understand what it means to be mansplained to. It happens in everyday life – you know, if you go into a shop, or you’re talking about finance.
I love cheese. It intensified when I moved to France. It felt like my cheese shop lady was my dealer because every week I’d say, ‘I need this cheese, I need that cheese’, and she’d cut me enough for the week but I’d finish a whole piece in one go.
Well, you know… I grew up in postwar Britain, when you were lucky to get anything to eat. People in America have absolutely no conception of how austere England was after the war. While you were all sort of eating butter and eggs, we were eating rabbit. That’s what there was in the butcher shop.
I wanted to help my sister, Latoya, because she’s an awesome cook. She’s one of the best culinary people I’ve ever met. She makes awesome cakes, so I was thinking about starting a little coffee shop cafe where she could sell them. I want to open a little, small, mom-and-pop place, but she can also do catering, too.
Most of my actor friends don’t believe it’s possible to let go of it and be happy, and for a while that was true for me. For the first two years I ached, every day. And I had such bad dreams. But then I made the decision to start working on my little shop and all that went away.
As a little boy, my first job was delivering newspapers, and then I had a variety of different jobs. I worked in a butcher shop. I worked in a supermarket. I worked in construction. I dug ditches on the Long Island Expressway in 1954, 1955, 1956.
Literature is capable of being a subject that people want to catch up on or discuss, whether at a coffee shop or a watercooler. It can become an intrinsic part of their dialogue.
There are a couple things that I could be doing, maybe owning a coffee shop or work in construction, building houses back in Nashville or British Columbia. I’ve also thought about being a property owner which would give me income and allow me to fix and maintain those properties to keep me busy.
I’d say I was a tomboy… I took wood shop in high school and I was very into volleyball and football, and was very unaware of anything girly for a long time.
A plant-based diet is like a one-stop shop against chronic diseases.
We need to keep telling people that London is great place to buy and to shop.
Social media requires that business leaders start thinking like small-town shop owners. This means taking the long view and avoiding short-term benchmarks to gauge progress. It means allowing the personality, heart and soul of the people who run all levels of the business to show.
A desk for $350 a month in a common area is not as cheap as a coffee shop. But a lot of people would say they’re empowered by that environment in a way that makes it worth it.
I’m a bit of a chocolate snob, actually, since I used to work at a chocolate shop in England when I was really young. And since then, it’s been hard for me to eat cheap chocolate.
I don’t shop.
My favourite vintage shop in New York is called Screaming Mimi’s, and whenever I go, I’ll spend three hours in there just trawling.
My mother keeps things in perspective for me. She makes me realize that the acting I do and love is no more important than what one of my brothers does-he works in a shoe repair shop. If my career ever tapers off, I’ll go to college.
I discovered the slip dress, which I think is one of the more French things because when you take off your clothes, even when to go into a shop to buy something, or you’re going to Riccardo Tisci to try on a suit, it’s like having protection.
I get paid very well and am happy with what I make, but I’m not in the super-rich bracket. I shop in a supermarket like everyone else.
The hardest part of cooking is shopping, and if you organize yourself and shop once a week, you’re halfway there.
I want to make a shop that’s unlike any that already exists.
Put me in a vintage shop, and I am like a child with sweeties. I find it a million times easier to find a vintage dress than trawl the shops for a pair of jeans, so I am either dressed in really nice vintage, or I am in a pair of tracksuit bottoms looking like a scruffbag.
The only change I can really see is that I don’t have to shop for pants in stores anymore.
My cousin knew a manager in the model agency, He offered me a shoot for a Korean brand called Kai-aakmann, and it was a good pay. I was working at a shop selling surfing items in Busan, but I quit the job and came to Seoul for a better future.
Over time, shop classes sort of disappeared or got marginalized in the states. I don’t really know why. Now with tech like 3-D printers and CNCs, shops have acquired a new shine.
While studying art and design at Central Saint Martins, I went round supermarkets taking photos of shoppers and their baskets: the game was to match people with their food. For an architectural project, I made a scale model of a shop out of gingerbread rather than foam and added icing and sweets very colourfully.
I feel more content with what I wear. I always feel confident. I shop for my age and my body.
I love to shop at BCBG, because it’s classy and elegant but a little bit sexy. It fits who I am in one store.
We were in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. It’s a nice town, but it’s aggressively quaint. They’ve got a popcorn shop above a waterfall and parades that come through town. It’s all-American.
I was not prepared for the actual process itself; having to go to the shop and having some molds done.
People may think I’m crazy, but one of the ways I like to wind down my Friday is to get some of our household chores done, whether it’s cleaning or doing a big food shop, so the house is all nice for the weekend.
I think of the spam folder not as Pandora’s box but as a costume shop in which you can play and play at being whoever and whatever you wish. If only for a time.
What I don’t like is the way people automatically think I am a kept woman, that he pays my expenses. This puts me in a rage. I’ve always paid my own way, even while living in his mansion. I’ve kept an apartment of my own. In fact, I not only buy my own clothes, but many of Hef’s, too – he just hates to shop.
I shop online because I don’t like to try things on in front of an alien mirror.
When radio stations started playing music the record companies started suing radio stations. They thought now that people could listen to music for free, who would want to buy a record in a record shop? But I think we all agree that radio stations are good stuff.
In the barber shop you start playing checkers, and eventually you want to learn how to play chess. The pieces look a little more interesting. You’re doing more things. I’m pretty good at it.
I used to leave my house at 6:30 in the morning, and I would visit 10 shops every Saturday, starting at the furthest shop I’d decided to go to that day, ending up in Oxford Street 12 hours later.
I don’t like to shop. It creates so much anxiety.
I worked as long in a fish and chip shop as I did in Parliament. I’ve had particular experiences in politics, but they’re not my only ones, and they’re not the ones that defined me.
It’s just really important I think for fashion to be affordable, because everyone should have the opportunity to wear cute things and be happy and comfortable in what they are wearing. That’s definitely how I like to shop and how I like to think about clothes and fashion.
You can take for granted that people know more or less what a street, a shop, a beach, a sky, an oak tree look like. Tell them what makes this one different.
As much as I love to shop online, I also love walking the streets on a beautiful day and seeing what finds I can discover in a small shop or vintage store.
I grew up, really, in the days before air conditioning. So I can remember what it was like to be really hot, for instance, and I can remember what it was like when your barber shop and your local stores weren’t air conditioned, so it was hot when you went in them and they propped the doors open.
I don’t really shop any more. I only do it when I have to. I think it is very overrated.
Our platform is a one-stop shop, from marketing and promotion through to ticketing. But even in the early days, in 2006-07, when we were mostly carrying shortform video, we became the premier movie marketing platform.
It would be pretty amazing for Victoria’s Secret to be that huge corporation that embraces trans women. We shop there as well.
Honestly, before I started working at the comic shop, I was not a huge comic reader. I grew up reading ‘Archie’ and have an incredible love/hate relationship with Archie Comics. I got back into it when I started living with some roommates who were really comics fanatics.
I call my therapist every other day. It’s not a one-stop shop. You have to push away all that negativity in your head. Face it, name it, let it go.
To see where I’ve stolen all my ideas from, look no further than the comics at your local comic shop!
I don’t know nothing about the restaurant business, but I’ve been around a barber shop all my life. That’s where I used to get my dates in high school.
I did ‘I’d Do Anything,’ and then a play and then ‘A Little Light Music.’ I played jazz in a night club where nobody listened to me for two years. I sold cereal in a market for a while. I worked in a clothes shop in Brixton. But that’s the life of an actor. You never really know when your next job is coming.
The ability to do this so quickly was largely due to the enthusiastic and efficient services of Mr. C.E. Taylor, who did all the machine work in our shop for the first as well as the succeeding experimental machines.
I’ll never forget the moment in 1985 when I was riding my motorbike down the King’s Road and I first saw the words David Linley on the sign on my first shop. I nearly came off my bike. It was so incredibly public; I suddenly realised there was to be no stepping away from my work because my name was all over it.
I come from very humble origins, so the last thing I would ever do is to look down my nose at people who can’t afford to come here to my shop.
The racism I am really interested in stamping out is in everyday life. Joe Bloggs, who nobody knows, walks down the street and gets racially abused. He goes into a shop and people think he is going to steal something. He cannot get a job.
We don’t really care how the customers want to shop. We want to be in the position to serve them in any of those ways.
I’ve had to adapt my wardrobe to my various roles, both at the office, as a mom, and for television. When I shop for the season I look for pieces that will suit every facet of my daily life, not just one single occasion.
I love to shop at Macy’s. It has a huge Guess section and lots of Jessica Simpson stuff.
I love shopping. I don’t go on crazy ‘I’m going shopping’ sprees; I shop as I go along.
I have always been a fan of Jim Henson, and I love his Creature Shop creations, the skill of the puppets and the characters he creates.
A month before I booked ‘This Is Us,’ I was like, ‘Maybe I should move to Montreal and work in a coffee shop.’
IQ is a commodity, data is a commodity. I’m far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read ‘Tech Crunch,’ ‘Ad Age.’ I would rather be living in the trenches. I would rather be going to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to watch people shop with their smartphones.
I go shopping maybe three times a year in an intense way. I’m like a man. Can’t spend too much time in a shop.
I completely agree with the term ‘adopt, don’t shop.’ We usually have fantasies and preferences regarding the breed of dogs, but what about the strays?
Purchase items that can be made into several meals, like a whole roasted chicken, or bag of sweet potatoes, and shop the periphery of the grocery store, avoiding the middle aisles full of processed and higher-priced foods.
When I was born, my dad was a scaffolder, and my mum worked in a chip shop. Then my mum taught herself how to be a hairdresser and ended up with her own salon; my dad became a postman and then a counter clerk. Our first house didn’t have a bathroom.
I once hosted the Butcher Shop of the Year Awards. There’s nothing like performing to the personification of the phrase a ‘sausage fest’ to hammer home how you’ve hit the big time.
I love chocolate, and I love to shop – just give me a good boutique. I like mall scenarios, too, because there’s more right there at hand. I think Nashville could use some better shopping!
I do try to shop online and support people who hand-make their stuff, and because you can find stuff that nobody else has.
My mom and I shopped for my ‘X Factor’ outfits at La Cantera. We went to Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. I live really close to the mall, so I’d always go there to shop.
Personally, I’m a simple dresser. I usually buy my own clothes. Jeans, T-shirts, summer dresses and track pants. Whenever I get the time or see a shop that catches my fancy, I buy something.
Apparently, in the olden days, nawabs would get bored with their cooks very quickly and throw them out. All of them set up shop in a place called Bawarchi Tola. That’s how royal food came to the streets. I started hanging around there. That’s when I realised food is a lot more than just cooking on Sundays.
When I was growing up, every Sunday was a rest day, so after church, we’d get all my cousins and sisters together, and my parents would take us all shop hopping. We’d go to all the different shops, and Target was always the last on the list; we’d walk in, and Mum would say, ‘Go on, go crazy!’
The Italian Renaissance extends beyond food, of course. Just about every major Italian furniture designer now has a shop in Paris, and Le Bon Marche recently opened an outlet for Santa Maria Novella perfumes, elixirs and soaps from Florence on its ground floor.
Taking stock of what you own, when done correctly and thoroughly, helps dampen the urge to shop frivolously.
My favorite experience, in general, probably was the ‘Little Shop’ experience, which probably was terrifying, frustrating, and exhilarating and amazing, but because it was the first, that was the one where I watched the show just launch itself for the first time and thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to have a career.’
I don’t have any beauty shop memories. I remember the barber shop.
I think religion is a bunch of hooey, and I think that the holidays are an opportunity for people to get stressed out, getting their rush to shop. It’s so conformist.
You know, I lose patience really easily; I’d rather shop in the grocery store than in the department store. I can pick an apple like nobody’s business.
Shop often, shop hard, and spend for the best stuff available – logic dictates that you can make delicious food only with delicious ingredients.
After school, I got a job in a shop in Hollywood and shared an apartment with a friend. I promptly lost my job and got evicted from my apartment, and that happened several times.
In Spain, players have an official price tag, just like shirts hanging in a shop do.
I was actually with Conor Oberst on tour, and we were walking down the street getting a coffee. I walked into a random hipster-y coffee shop and I heard my own song, and I was so stoked.
My mum used to work in New York in Spike Lee’s shop; she did the outfits for the video for P.M. Dawn’s ‘Set Adrift on Memory Bliss.’
Yeah, I love shopping and clothes but I don’t live to shop.
The box office is a black money laundry shop. No business is straight.
I told my mum recently, when I used to envisage my adulthood, it was just me working at a corner shop that mum and dad could drive me to and pick me up from. I couldn’t ever imagine living on my own and having a job that I wanted to do. Because I never saw it.
I used to shop in ASDA all the time. Every now and then I still go in to get a little salad for lunch.
I design a lot of things that I wear onstage, but I’m always looking for unique stuff. I like creative things, so anything I can find at a secondhand costume shop to a Helmut Lang store, it doesn’t matter – just unique stuff.
The thing I like to do most is shop.
I live right next to a grocery store and I don’t know if it’s the bachelor in me, but I just go in and shop for what I need for the day. I’m an idiot because I don’t shop for the whole week. The check out clerks always crack jokes about the fact that I’m in there sometimes twice a day.
Just the other day, my assistant was on the line with Calvin Klein. Golly, I usually shop at Sears.
For me, just as a social recorder of 2016, there’s a new girl that emerged that can shop in between Zara and designer and still maintain a sense of her personality and identity.
I’d love to set up shop somewhere and develop projects – film, TV, digital would be a fun thing to do.
A blind bloke walks into a shop with a guide dog. He picks the Dog up and starts swinging it around his head. Alarmed, a shop assistant calls out: ‘Can I help, sir?’ ‘No thanks,’ says the blind bloke. ‘Just looking.’
Everybody’s not gonna understand what I wear because they don’t shop where I shop.
I like to think of myself at home in the armchair, writing, smoking and occasionally wandering down the shop.
French women love to shop and prepare food. They love to talk about what they have bought and made. It’s a deeply natural love, but one that is erased in many other cultures. Most French women learn it from their mothers, some from their fathers. But if your parents aren’t French, you can still learn it yourself.
I just went to the hobby shop and got an electricity kit and a chemistry kit, and I’m really excited to do experiments like squeezing an egg into a bottle and growing crystals. I’m really getting into hobbies.
My nan, God bless her, used to buy the NME, then go to the chip shop and be like ‘ooh check out that’ every week, she’d be saying, ‘Oh have you heard the new single by Arctic Monkeys?’ and it’s like, I haven’t even heard this!
Miami gave me an opportunity to grow. I wanted to see if I was really a one-team guy, or if I picked up my suitcases and set up shop somewhere else, would I be able to make the team?
I try not to assign labels to myself. Sometimes I shop in the plus section, and sometimes I don’t. I feel we attach too much significance to labels, and ultimately, it doesn’t really matter.
Jeremy Clarkson wants to become a farmer – he’s bought a field – Hammond wants to open a supermarket, and I’d like to spend my days owning a shoe shop.
New York, Dubai and London are places where I love to shop.
For Eid – or Raya, as the Malaysians call it – we love to shop for new clothes for the festive season. There will be open houses to go to, and Malaysians love to look good for these.
I never shop – my wife takes care of all of that.
I don’t love it when people come in and say, ‘We need a woman on our board,’ or ‘Can you invest in this new shopping app because you like to shop?’ But whatever gets me in the deal.
Do people think we eat, like, gold cereal in the morning? We’re really simple, simple, simple people. We grocery shop; we wash our own dishes. We do most of the things that most people do.
I used to take long walks in England. The second time I went there, it helped me to lose a lot of weight. When I wasn’t playing, I used to spend the whole day walking. Going from shop to shop.
I never expected to get the Tom Jones treatment and it amazes me that I do. Strangely it’s women who throw their underwear at me when I’m performing live. My male fans tend to be quite shy. My female fans are wild. I never know what to do with all the lingerie that lands at my feet. Maybe I should open a shop.
I met Clinton during her husband’s first campaign for the White House. It was 1992, New Hampshire, and both Clintons had stopped at a coffee shop to greet the folks and get something to eat.
The idea of having a house, a kid, a husband, and a dog… I love that. I also really want to open a coffee and flower shop one day, probably in Italy.
I believe everyone should have a good death. You know, with your grandchildren around you, a bit of sobbing. Because after all, tears are appropriate on a death bed. And you say goodbye to your loved ones, making certain that one of them has been left behind to look after the shop.
I’ve lived in L.A. for a long time, and they say, ‘If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough, you will get a hair cut.’ Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough, you’re going to get some surgery.
When I used to work in special effects at the model shop, I couldn’t imagine having a better job. We made spaceships and miniature cities and I was working on robots. Then the ‘MythBusters’ opportunity came along.
I’m pretty much a thrift shop gal. Flea markets on Sundays.
I saw these new kinds of stores: the Body Shop, the Sock Shop, and I thought to myself, ‘I can do that.’
After being in one movie, it didn’t seem like that would be my life. I had done several jobs, briefly. I’d been a shipping clerk, I worked in a copy shop, I didn’t think the acting was going to go on and on.
If you’re Ronan Keating, who was working in a shoe shop when I discovered him, but end of thinking you’re George Michael, then you need to be stopped.
Consumers have a different path to purchase. They don’t shop less than they used to; it is just that the footsteps went online. You have to think differently in how you engage with users.
Buy, buy, says the sign in the shop window; Why, why, says the junk in the yard.
We didn’t have a beauty shop as I grew up.
I personally stream or download from iTunes because I love the quick access that I have to music; I don’t have to write down a list of songs that I like and then go to the shop.
I am the largest market shareholder of clothing in the U.K. and I am not a destination shop for food. If the clothing market is affected – and it has been – and I hold my market share mathematically, then fine, I am doing no worse than the market is doing, which is exactly the case, but I’m losing revenue.
When I was in school, shop class was where the kids that weren’t good in anything to do with books went.
When I left school, I got a job in a shoe shop and I used to save 15 quid a week and pay for my own singing and acting lessons.
When I went into the computer shop to change my last laptop, the 19-year-old kid behind the counter looked at my six-year-old model and described it as ‘vintage.’ ‘Vintage?’ I wanted to scream. ‘Son, I’ve got shirts older than you! I own underpants that have seen more of the world!’
I’ve got a closet full of tuxes, and I appreciate that, because one thing I don’t like to do is shop.
What does it tell you that applications for guns since the shooting are up 41 percent in Colorado, and that our cameras found about 50 people in line at one gun shop yesterday outside Denver?
In general, I’m rubbish in heels. I love them, and I own a lot because it’s like being in a sweet shop: they’re pretty. But I’m not good in them. I don’t walk nicely in heels.
See, I will always shop, and that’s sort of a problem. Clothes are always exploding out of my closet!
I shop at the farmers’ market twice a week.
The Southern Ground warehouse is rocking and rolling in Atlanta, with a T-shirt shop and a leather shop; everything we’re selling at our shows we’re making or publishing ourselves.
I remember watching an episode of ‘Seinfeld’ in which George can’t understand why security guards can’t sit down. He gets obsessed with it and eventually buys a chair for a security guard who sits down and goes to sleep. The shop gets robbed. That’s a brilliant extrapolation of what is essentially observational comedy.
L.A. can make you feel like you’ve already made it. You’re living off 40 dollars a week; it’s nice weather. You go outside on your bike; you go to the coffee shop, and everybody is doing nothing. It doesn’t leave a lot of room for ambition.
I dress up for awards, but only if somebody else is going to pay for the clothes. And shop for them, too!
When I was a kid at first I wanted to own a candy shop. I guess every kid wants to – we just want to have access – free access.
I am a physical retailer by trade – if your shop is burgled you don’t immediately think, ‘Is it North Korea? Is it the Mafia?’ But with cyber you don’t know initially whether you’re dealing with a state actor, as they call them, a small-time criminal, an insider.
I do hear from people at my exhibition about seeing these things made from this toy from their childhood, and it brings them back. They’ll go and buy a set of Lego from the gift shop because of that nostalgia and seeing it at the art exhibition.
As I’ve often said, you can shop online and find whatever you’re looking for, but bookstores are where you find what you weren’t looking for.
Nobody understood The Reoccurring Dream, but after September 11, when we were coerced to do a national duty and go out and shop, surely people could begin to see what I was getting at.
I shop a lot from the children’s section and, sometimes, from the men’s section. You’ll find skirts, shirts and shoes from the children’s section. My friends buy me more adult-like clothes, and I love those. But I cannot do away with the colourful stuff.
My father was the proprietor of a music shop on Forty-third Street, where many of the finest performers and musicians of the day would come to shop. He knew the classical repertoire inside out.
I was able to do a lot of music on ‘SCTV,’ and I was really lucky to do a musical; I got to sing the part of Seymour in ‘Little Shop of Horrors.’
But in another, I think a woman’s going to go into a shop to find a coat or a jacket and I just don’t think she’s not going to go into a shop because of a bad review she probably didn’t even read.
Racing’s in my blood. My mum met my dad when she went to buy her first motorbike in his shop.
I hate to shop.
I don’t have any particular rituals, I sometimes like to write in longhand when I’m searching for ideas but I do the vast majority by typing, I can’t always keep up with my thoughts longhand. I’m not a coffee shop writer because I feel obliged to order more coffee and then I end up over-caffeinated.
Don’t shop when you’re hungry or in a grumpy mood. You need to feel happy and confident to make the best decisions.
There’s a place in Dalston, in England, called LNCC, where you have to make an appointment in order to shop.
I do shop online! But I’m shopping online mostly in the home categories – One Kings Lane and Gilt. At a lot of architectural websites, I buy a lot of hardware for cabinetry like hinges and things like that from England. So, you know, for me, I shop at Net-A-Porter, but I don’t really shop that much for clothing online.
When ‘Firefly’ was canceled, we had just a few other places to shop it to – to take it over… And all of them had reasons why they couldn’t do it that time.
At Shopify, we are trying to make things as simple as possible, but for the business owner, it’s not unlike starting your own little shop along Main Street somewhere.
I grew up in Southampton. My mum was a shop assistant; my dad was a carpenter. They broke up when I was eight.
I have a worm’s eye view and a bird’s eye view simultaneously and it’s immensely helpful to understand what is happening on the shop floor when you are harnessing many talents and telling an intimate story on a large scale.
I’m never going to be one of those people who is good at organization. But I’m very visual. I have a catalog in my head of things I already own, so it’s easy to shop and I always know exactly what I’m looking for.
It’s hard to shop for a guy who has everything.
I was born on September 30, 1939, in Rosheim, a small medieval city of Alsace in France. My father, Pierre Lehn, then a baker, was very interested in music, played the piano and the organ, and became, later, having given up the bakery, the organist of the city. My mother Marie kept the house and the shop.
I’d cut school and go over to the Lori-Ann Donut Shop and eat doughnuts. I got a job at the pet store near Lechmere, unloading fish tanks. They gave me $10 for unloading a full long-bed truckload. I never broke a fish tank. When I asked for a raise, I got fired.
As a cricketer you can go under the radar. It’s not like we’re footballers who get papped everywhere. I can go down to the corner shop without getting hassled.
When I left Parnham aged 18, I could easily have ended up twiddling my thumbs in a workshop all week. But I lucked out and found an agent who immediately got me work and before long there was enough demand for my furniture to start a shop.
I do shop on eBay. I love to buy china on eBay. I’ve bought quite a few sets of plates. I like to buy gifts as well. If I know somebody has a favorite writer, I look for a first edition. It’s also a great place to buy vintage jewelry.
Eye-popping tales of growing income inequality are hardly new. By now, nearly every American must be painfully aware of the widening pay gap between top executives and shop floor laborers; between ‘Master of the Universe’ financiers and pretty much everyone else.
I was part of a group called Casanova Fly, doing bouncer work, attending college and working in a pizza shop when I first met producer Sylvia Robinson who came into the pizza shop where I was flipping the dough. I was rapping in the park in Englewood, and she heard about what I was doing.
I’m just like every other girl who likes to shop, likes to look good, likes to spend time with friends.
I love Ralph Lauren. As I travel so much, I prefer to shop online.
The other day, a doughnut shop in Portland called Pip’s Originals tweeted me telling me that they named a doughnut after me called the ‘Dirty Wu.’ It is a cinnamon sugar doughnut drizzled with honey and Nutella. It was so good. I just won the Oscar in the sci-fi world.
I personally like to shop in person so I can feel the product.
The money that we make from the company goes into The Body Shop Foundation, which isn’t one of those awful tax shelters like some in America. It just functions to take the money and give it away.
As for environmentalism, I’m only an environmentalist by accident. I live in New York, so I bike, and the closest grocery store to me sells organic produce. I also shop with a book bag because I ride a bike, and it’s hard to carry the paper or plastic bags.
The Body Shop Foundation is run by our staff and supports social activism and environmental activism. We don’t tend to support big agencies.
Plus-size is a term that’s never been used in hate; no one has ever used it in a negative way. The industry has always used it to help us identify where to shop.
I shop at the market, and that informs what I make.
Sure, I considered myself an anarchist; I considered myself – I still am, obviously – distrustful of the government. But I also understand the virtues of civility or democracy and kindness, of course. I wasn’t throwing garbage cans through shop windows.
The only constant in my life besides OYO is Lisa, my dog. She’s a Lhasa apso. The only reason I shop is to buy accessories for Lisa.
I was thrilled when a designer shop assistant said I was a size smaller than Madonna!
You want the good life? You live where white people live, you go to school where white people go to school, and you shop where white people shop.
Cloud computing, smartphones, social media platforms, and Internet of Things devices have already transformed how we communicate, work, shop, and socialize. These technologies gather unprecedented data streams leading to formidable challenges around privacy, profiling, manipulation, and personal safety.
I just enjoy the sound as I hear it in everything around me. The high and low frequencies of sound bewitch me. Whether I am in a shop, in the bathroom or listening to noise that my fans make… everything is music to my ears and drives me. I just put all these things in rhythm when I’m playing.
I always like to shop and for me it was just about seeing things I like and making it part of my wardrobe and collecting things that I could always bring back when I’m like 50, 60 years old.
When I was starting a small printing shop in Wembley, I vividly remember coming out of the cinema, realising I had spent the two hours worrying about that month’s payroll, rather than focusing on the film.
We like music, we pretty much collect it, but I’m not geeky about it, although I’m usually in the record shop nearly every day.
Being a people’s party cannot mean being a kind of all-purpose political shop that offers something for everyone.
I want my songs to be enjoyed by those who travel in a town bus and they should be played repeatedly in a tea shop.
Amazon has historically been a bully, and I don’t shop there. But I love Goodreads. For the record.
I am a tea connoisseur and my idea of absolute heaven is a tea shop.
If we’re ever seen having a public spat in a coffee shop, I think the concept of romance will die.
More and more department stores are acting as the shop window for a range of retailers now, using space more efficiently to recreate the feel of the local market, creating new market opportunities for the small and the niche.
I really enjoyed working on a building site. I also worked for a couple of months in a mobile phone repair shop. That just wasn’t me.
My dad constantly tells me I should calm down, but I feel so sad when I see places I’ve known since I was a child closing. I burst out crying when a local pharmacy closed the other day; it’s just going to become a shop that nobody has much of a need for. But I am trying to move with the times.
I rarely go into a shop on holiday, because fashion and design are what I’m involved in every day. I need another world.
I couldn’t take that whole retail thing of being polite to people that are not being polite to you, and showing respect to people when they’ve got no respect for you. Retail in general is something I just can’t do, unless it’s my own shop.
I think the first time I realised ‘Downton Abbey’ was a hit was when I was sitting in a tea shop in New York and the couple next to me were talking about ‘Downton Abbey,’ and then they recognised me.
Facebook’s campus has a lot of creative spaces: an analogue print shop, a candy store. It’s a dynamic place and one of the best environments I’ve been in, period.
I love to shop at the farmer’s market or grab something from the garden and roast that.
I’m a pretty organised packer, laying out everything beforehand, as I don’t like to take extra stuff. I’ve got a good eye for judging how much I can stuff into one suitcase. I’ve often not brought the right items, but I’d never avoided a chance to shop, unlike most men.
We all know how the Internet has changed the lives of consumers: it’s changed how we communicate, how we shop, how we meet people. It’s changed things for businesses too.
Just to go into a shop without getting stared at would be nice. I mean, I don’t walk around like, ‘Oh, I’m trying to be famous’ – I try to lead as normal a life as possible – but sometimes it’s annoying. It’s fine; it’s not a massive problem, but sometimes it’s just a bit uncomfortable.
All my tattoos except my first were not planned. I would just go into the shop late at night with friends and ask for something on the spot. My first is my parents’ wedding date. I thought it would soften the blow of getting a tattoo.
I’m kind of feeling like I don’t mind being open with the random details of my life, like I’m at a coffee shop or my toe hurts or something, but obviously other more personal areas of life where I will just never really go there.
When I was 12, I used to ride my scooter two miles to a comics shop, which I can’t imagine letting my kids do by themselves through the city.
I had grown up in a toy shop in Blackpool and then moved to London to do an acting course.
The one thing I’m really excited about is that the Saint Heron shop is not grounded in just fashion and clothing. We have connected with artists and artisans in every landscape.
My father had a perfectly good drummer who he had an argument with. So one day, on a Tuesday, my father came in with a cheap pawn shop set of drums and said, ‘Put your foot here, and you kick there, and you play this, and this is the high hat.’ And Friday night, I was playing in a honky-tonk.
What I disliked most about working as a shop assistant wasn’t the occasional snooty customer or the shop or the hours, but the way people reacted when I told them I was a shop assistant – their automatic assumption that I didn’t enjoy it.
Organize yourself so you aren’t struggling to shop at the last minute. When you have real food, it’s very easy to cook.
My primary school teacher once poured a bottle of curdled school milk forcefully down my throat. Then I threw it up all over her suede shoes. I’d rather have drunk from the spittoon in Barney’s barber shop.
I was a technology reporter. And I think everybody who covers tech at some point or another feels like a little kid with their face pressed against the glass looking in at the candy shop and going, ‘Wow, it looks so cool and so much fun.’
Broadband, or a wide bandwidth data transmission that has the capacity to transmit a lot of information quickly, has changed the way we work, shop, watch movies, and communicate with loved ones.
I never read any fairy tales or classics until I was an adult; all we ever had was comics… No television, either. If we wanted entertainment, we hung around the fish shop.
So my brain started ticking and I bought all my books from a cookbook shop, Libraire Gourmand in Paris. I bought them over the Internet and they sent them from France. I got the ‘Larousse’ in a box with 20 other books. I was pretty excited. It was like Christmas for 20 years.
For the producers, there was no reason to produce. You get money, but you couldn’t use this money. For consumers, you could have money, but you have no way to use it because you go to the shop and see nothing.
I got my first job when I moved to Los Angeles. I worked at a coffee shop for five years and it was one of the best experiences I ever had. It was a bunch of actors covering shifts for each other and becoming great friends.
It makes me happy that people recognise me and want to click pictures with me. But sometimes, I want to be a common person. I want to go to a coffee shop and just chill. I miss driving my car with the windows rolled down.
Miles Flannery – he’s a beast. Very talented, but a brute. He’s one of three guys who help us keep the shop maintained, help us set up on location and assist in building something if time is short.
I’d describe myself as a saver, but just sometimes I can spend like a kicking horse! Ryman is the one shop I can’t go past without going into. I just can’t resist lovely stationery.
A couple of weeks after the Olympics, I thought I’d pop down to my local supermarket and do some grocery shopping. One person came up to me in the frozen food aisle, and that was it. I was mobbed, and I had to leave my shopping. Now, I either shop online or go very late at night when the supermarket’s nearly empty.
All cheaters shop for Swedish discount furniture.
23andMe set out to try and change healthcare – this is not an easy business. This is not a coffee shop in Austin.
When I go to the DVD shop, I mostly buy documentaries because you learn a lot from documentaries.
One of my favorite stores in the Old Town is Buchbinderei. It’s this tiny stationery shop where the owner, Doris Feldman, makes these beautiful hand-bound notebooks I always buy for gifts.
It is better that one’s customers come to one’s shop than to have to look for them abroad.
I get recognized now and again, but the paparazzi aren’t following me around. I get to go to the shop and buy bread and milk, and no one worries me.
My childhood was a mix of ballet classes and debating society. I liked arguing. As a teenager, I wanted to be an author. Later on, inspired by Young Enterprise and the Body Shop founder Anita Roddick, I decided I wanted to go into business.
When I lived in Paris, I would shop at antique shops and buy these huge coats because I was very cold. And then I started performing in them because I felt safe. I never stopped doing that.
My father’s diner, the Jefferson Coffee Shop, was a simple, 27-seat affair in Washington D.C., open for breakfast and lunch – coffee and eggs in the morning, cold cuts and burgers in the afternoon.
My career has worked out exactly how I like, and I am just happy to go to a coffee shop and nobody knows me, or when they do, they are complimenting me on the work they have seen, and it feels very genuine.
I don’t really shop unless it’s thrift.
I want ‘Vogue’ to feel like a shop that you’re not scared to walk into, one that’s quite welcoming.
There used to be times when you didn’t see Indians on television or if you did it was the corner shop guy in ‘EastEnders,’ but now they’re not as stereotypical and we’ve managed to fit in and blend really well. England does a great job of doing that.
If you’re against globalisation, it doesn’t achieve much by sort of bombing the head offices of Shell or Nestle. You unsettle people much more by blowing up an Oxfam shop because people can’t understand the motive.
I think if you put people in front of some huge temptation where it’s possible to grab as much as they can for themselves, almost everyone will. The beauty of commerce is that it mutes that. The chap behind the counter in the corner shop has no interest in short-changing you, because he wants you to come back.
Our job is to represent the truth of human nature, whether you’re playing a tender love story that’s set in a coffee shop or whether you’re in ‘The Avengers,’ which is set in a Manhattan which is exploding.
I don’t really shop a lot. I order things online. When I travel, I’ll get some pieces along the way.
Everyone talks about Utah riding, slickrock and all that. I go through the mountain-bike magazines at the shop, and I think, ‘That’d be awesome.’
I want the ‘Book of Basketball’ to do well if only so I can shop an absolutely ridiculous topic for my next book: like, a book about basketball cards, or an unauthorized biography of A. J. Daulerio.
My sister, mom and I all wear the same size, so I shop a lot at a boutique called ‘my mother’s closet’ that is right down the hall from my bedroom. She has vintage Comme des Garcons dresses that I feel so elegant wearing.
I don’t want to be doing fashion shoots and being interviewed about where I shop. Who cares?
I wear my pajamas. That’s the thing I love most about writing. I don’t get changed until I actually have to go out of the house. I’ll write and take a late lunch or go to a coffee shop when I get where I can’t stand the four walls anymore.
Third-generation Indians love maintaining their cultural traditions, but they can also go down the pub, shop till they drop, do whatever anyone else does.
When I opened my first shop, city gents were still carrying tightly furled umbrellas and wearing bowler hats. It was into this world that I launched my new ideas about fashion.
It’s quite amazing to me, as I walk around a supermarket or a health food shop, to observe the number of Fairtrade choices: not just staples such as coffee, tea, fresh fruits and rice, but cocoa and chocolate, herbs and spices, honey, ice cream, and jams.
As a kid, I was always building things. My father had a shop in the house, and we built things – we were kind of a project family. I started out as a painter, and then painting led to cinema, and in cinema, you get to build so many things, or help build them.
I know it sounds strange, but I’m one of those people who goes to a coffee shop to drink coffee.
I am, of course, a frustrated rock star – I’d much rather be a rock star than a writer. Or own a record shop. Still, it’s not a bad life, is it? You just sit at a computer and make stuff up.
I shop almost exclusively online, from brands like Eloquii, ASOS, Elizabeth Suzann, or Rachel Comey, if one of their straight-size pieces has a little extra room.
Usually I feel kind-of normal and lame, and then I’ll go to the coffee shop and someone’ll say, ‘You rock!’ And then I’ll remember how awesome I am.
There’s a design book I got years ago that had a statue of a dog with a bunch of hats on it, and I just obsessively fell in love with it. For years I searched for that dog. One day I walked into an antique shop in La Jolla and I found a white dog that I could put hats on!
I actually don’t shop very much. I have a tendency to rotate a few pairs of ripped jeans and an old cashmere sweater.
I live, I shop almost exclusively on the Internet. I’ve bought cars on the Internet. I watch television, I do everything on it. I even watch my son online.
I very rarely shop. The only money I spend is on, like, Uber and food.
Sonny and another Hells Angel who was at the meeting thought they were beyond a little patch so they headed down to a local tattoo shop in Oakland and were the first to get the famous One Percent tattoos.
I don’t shop online, but my wife buys everything at home. We buy sea crabs, fresh crabs, all kinds of things.
Even if I am predisposed to shop online, I see bricks and mortar as part of marketing.
Take a different route to the coffee shop to see what you can see and hear. When we get in a routine, we can become zombie-like and shut down. It’s about discipline. You have to push yourself.
I shop only at thrift stores and vintage stores. In New York, I like a place called Star Struck, and a place called The Family Jewels.
Seriously, I think every neighborhood can appreciate a cute little specialty wine shop.
There’s this shop in New York I go to; it has bones and fossils and insects that are like works of art. I have a few on my wall.
I’m a massive fan of Carnaby Street. I love it there. Every time I have an audition, I like to have a cheeky wander through, do a little bit of a window shop, just to see what’s happening. As well as the shops and the clothes, I like the vibe and energy.
There is no reason why the Louvre should be your favourite gallery just because it has the grandest collections in France, any more than Kew should necessarily be a favourite garden because it has the largest assemblage of plants, or Tesco your chosen shop because it has the widest variety of canned beans.
I’ve battled my weight since I was 12. My parents took to us to New York once, for a holiday, and there I’d buy fruit loops from a 24×7 shop and sit down with my books. I never played; I wasn’t that kind of kid – I just read. I ate chocolates like peanuts. I was 86kg till I was 19.
My father was a self-employed textile agent, and the shop below his office was an art gallery.
Reducing and reusing take nothing more than a rethink on the way we shop, and using our imagination with the things that we might once have considered junk.
I worked at this bike shop called Rockville BMX, and I started going on this summer tour with this one company. One summer, we ended up in California, and I got to hang out with the guys who made ‘Freestylin’ – Andy Jenkins and Mark Lewman.
I’m like a kid in a sweet shop every day. It’s slightly cringey how much fun I have.
The Monmouth Coffee Shop is the best place in London.
Our first visit to the Creature Shop is one of the days I will never, ever forget. There was just so much to see and admire and be gobsmacked by.
My mum worked in a grocery shop and played football, and my dad worked with cars, a sales director, and he played to almost a professional level. His dad played as well.
When I shop, I only do it when I really have to do it for something. I don’t like to try on clothing like that – as much I love looking fly.
I was in London for 13 years and I think I only found one good chip shop.
I like to shop, but I don’t like to go out to dances.
In New York you go to the coffee shop, have a bagel, walk down the street, get hassled, run into someone else. People just waltz into your world and it’s believable.
To be an entrepreneur in Europe, there is a stigma attached to it. There’s a reason why England is known as a nation of shopkeepers. Part of it is the idea that it’s better to have a shop and keep it up and running than close the doors and try to do something much more significant.
