No-one likes to shop, where the goods are no longer fresh - or even tarnished....
Simple answer - perhaps...
Give the world, what it demands - or do they ?
" Just under what authority, do I have the audacity, to even suggest China and / or Chinese gardens - should consider the why? the where? and the what? "
Keep seeking to authentically represent, what was originally purposed;
within the walls of a Chinese garden.
Was that not to shut the commercial world - outside ?
So if you must, then position these " Gift Shops " for added - value -
appropriately, so they do not jeopardise the Chinese Garden Scene.
Harsh words, or simple planning in TRUTH ?
Monkey Trap; seemingly harmless, yet why can't they simply " let go " ?
