Anthropologie Selling Bunch Of Twigs For US$50 Online Leaves Internet Speechless
By Izza Sofia, 23 Nov 2018
Fashion retailer Anthropologie has been hit with criticism for selling decorative twigs for an exorbitant price of £40 (US$51.45).
The twigs, dubbed ‘Decorative Birch Bundle’, are described as adding “a rustic quality to your home” and customers can only purchase this item online. While some might appreciate this rustic piece of home décor, others are questioning the existence of the product.
One Twitter user commented, “If you’re spending £40 on sticks then you need to get out more. Seriously. The ground’s covered in them.” Another angry Twitter user wrote, “Whaaaaat?! I usually can’t get enough of Anthropologie, but £40 for a bunch of twigs?!”
The decorative bundle of twigs is wrapped in brown strings and contains 20 twigs in total, which means each twig is valued at £2 (US$2.57).
