I was at The Great Outdoor Provision Company today talking to my friend Jim that works there. In the middle of our conversation he stops and grabs a pack of feathers obviously angry. "THIS WON'T DO AT ALL!" He said. I analyzed the pack in his hand and wondered what exactly was wrong. The feathers looked fine they were little off color from the other pack. I couldn't believe Jim would be that anal. Then he told me, "half the pack is missing." I thought why would someone steal just a few feathers and not a whole pack.
"People are stealing them for their hair." Jim said.
I never thought I'd see the day when people would shoplift feathers for their hair. Jim told me how much people were selling them for and I started to understand why. If you have some old feathers laying around you think you'll never use you might want to post them on Craigslist. You might be sitting on a fortune.
