You Buy It, You Break It

Thursday, 8 October 2009
I read an article about a business in San Diego that is smashing. It's called Sarah's Smash Shack. Customers go to the business, purchase a stack of plates (or vases or glasses) and spend hours breaking the items against a wall. You can even bring your own items in, such as this lovely set of pink flowered dishes.



But now come on, who would want to break things!? The website invites singles, couples, birthday parties, children and even senior citizens to come out and get their smash on.

I think it would be fun to just abandon decorum and throw a few glasses against the wall (I've never hurled a glass, cup, vase or plate) but beyond that, it might get a little boring.

Prices go from $35 for 20 plates, $75 for a six piece setting of dishes and $12 for three champagne flutes. You can even box up "the wreckage" for $10 to take home.

How 'bout you? Would you go for broke? If so, what would you think about while glass is flying?

I shatter enough stuff like that without even trying to, much less paying someone for the opportunity!
