Part 2 | Worldly Thinkers Who Would Boycott the Big Box [and #ShopSmall ]

Henry David Thoreau 


Only a genius could build a waterfront abode in Massachusetts for $28.95. “A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.”
 

Emily Dickinson 


America’s badass bardess, "the lady in white” rarely left her Amherst hearth. She concealed 800 poems from the public until her death, passing up on royalties and keeping it real.

“To live is so startling, it leaves little time for anything else” – which is why we are quite sure she would have avoided the big box and chose Mom and Pops instead.

Jakob Ammann and the Amish Mennonites 


Many of the youngin’s have decamped, but the hardcore Old Order Amish still disavow electricity, cars, phones and computers. Self sufficiency lets them cock a snook [at materialist big box America].
