The Label-Maker that Changed My Life

On Saturday morning I came across a garage sale in Brisbane’s West End. There were some entertaining signs gaffa-taped to several of the items but most of the stuff was fairly unexciting – some crockery and expensive retro clothes for indie kids. But in the corner, next to the chest-high hooka and under some stairs, was a little green label maker.

“Label things with – LABEL PRINTER – $5” the sign said.

“Hell yes!” I said and quickly bought it. Then I spent a good portion of Saturday night printing labels and climbing street signs. I knew I learned how to climb the poles of swing sets when I was a kid for a reason.

(They’re a little hard to read but I’ve labeled each of the photos so you just have to move your cursor over them to see what the label on the sign says.)

    Pure awesome.

    In the street one way away from mine we have a STOP. Hammer Time.
    Were I to borrow your label maker I would make a corresponding STOP. Collaborate and listen. in my own street.
