I don't know what the problems were with the Populuxe owners and the art guild and don't really care. But what I noticed was their shop seemed like great "art" to me.
That was such a blast from the past that museum was a good word for their shop.
I went to the Fredericksburg art walk and noticed they are doing great at the new location. The town, art walk people, and customers have welcomed them with open arms, which is what u DON't see in CB. Every time someone new wants to do something it's blah blah blah NO!!!! First u have to get a "name" whether it be come here, been here, ugly here or whatever. This is so childish, 7th grade if I remember.
Then comes the permit, permission process, which is where the fun begins.
Then comes the in fighting, insults, turn around of previous instructions etc.
Let's play nice and listen to what the new business want to do and have an open mind. Maybe it won't b so boring here. Ok now, I am a Big Boy so u can bring on your nuts

Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me!

You make some good points.

I liked the Populuxe shop and visited it many times, even bought some stuff, when it was on Hawthorne. Tried to stop by the new location several times but our schedules never quite meshed.

As a businessman, in my opinion, I think a lot of folks would agree that Dom may need to work on his interpersonal skills.

The way the owners of Populuxe treated people in town is why they weren't accepted here. When the nicest woman I know dislikes someone, well there is something wrong there.

Everyone complains about them generically. I was in their store many times and they were nice to everyone that I saw.
What exactly did they do? I just didn't see it...
