    Bespoke and artisanal / handmade have been abused and misused so much, sometimes deliberately, sometimes as a result of ignorance. It's probably inevitable in an increasingly dumbed down world, but it does make me sad.

    It's possibly common in other locals but here it is not, so it comes across as contrived and forced. Robotic greetings/service from retail employees who received and follow the memo is killing us all.

    Well, better than them saying "Come inside" because you know what I have to say in response. Think Rocky Horror...
