Wow. The other day I went into Hot Topic to find some Christmas presents.
What I found was an even greater hate for that store.

They are selling bags that look like they were made out of sweatshirts. I guess so people can walk around pretending they have some amazing craft ability while we crafters slave away over sewing machines and knitting needles.

Basically, it looks like someone took a sweatshirt, cut it off below the pockets, sewed it together, sewed the arms together, and the bag entrance is through the neck hole. The hood is still on it too.

I don't know why, but this really pisses me off.

Are these the bags you are talking about?



I think it's kind of hard to tell what they are in the pics. They were on the Hot Topic website. I think it was a good idea and noboby on craftster had thought of it yet (that I know of) so just be happy they aren't going around taking credit for our ideas.

I used to hate Hot Topic. That old school thing of being a freak in the 80s with no place to shop except thrift stores and having to do it all myself. Now? I love it. For the clearance stuff. I get an absolute kick out of buying teeshirts for my 58 yo dad there. Where all the cool kids shop right? He loves the shirts, and they cost 5 dollars each from the clearance racks. I buy most of the shoes/teeshirts for my family there. Best buy last month? The Darth Vader Revenge messenger bag for 7.00. My husband (who is an exec type) uses it for a briefcase.
The stuff I can do better? I do. My own way. People can recognise the sweatshirt bag that 3 or 4 people have one JUST like it and that they saw at HT.
(plus I've got lots of full frequent buyer cards if I ever DO need to buy something full price)

Yeah those are them! The one that I saw was really lame though. It had skulls and lightning bolts everywhere.
Thats not really a good picture
I loveeeee their clearance. Usually their clearance shirts are like 2xl mens shirts for $3.98, and I buy them and take them in so they are like dresses. Loooove ittttttt. I got a Billie Holiday shirt for that price too but it was my side. I was pretty flipping happy.

We should stand outside our local Hot Topics and sell our own bags.

hah! good idea!
we could ban together and make it a world wide thing.
we could call it C.A.S.H.T.T.
(craftsters against stupid hot topic things)
it could be a little stand.
hah i think im a little too into imagining that idea.

i like the idea of making our own but making them fiftysevenmillion times better, tho.
we could even have a little craftster logo on it to symbolize that we think for ourselves.

Yeah, sweatshirt bags have been around on Craftster a few times before. They probably stole it from here. Wannabe crafters. lol  Grin

Yeah I know!!!!

There should be a Craftster Patent or something.

And C.A.S.H.T.T sounds awesome. I thought you wrote CATSHIT. That would get some attention.

Speak! Strike! Redress!
