The Great Debate Results!

Here are the results from the post the other day!

First of all, to set it straight, this is the JR/SB "Navajo Flat" real Great Debate. Fellow blogger Melissa C. Morris says she spoke directly to Vivian from SB (I didn't write this, she did, so click the link to see the full "article"):
Bonanno
: The Original.
My father made them back in the 60's with Mr.. Luigi Pucillo, his partner. My mother cut out the leather into patterns, the long thin strips for the whipstit
ch as well as punched every single hole by hand. She put together all the tops of the sandals chose the colors she thought would show nice on her counter, while my father glued, stitched and sanded the soles. The Bonanno name was never stamped into the sole until my brother took over the business in the 1980s.
Jack: Imitation.
They saw a good thing, copied and mass produced them and sold them in dept stores. There is no patent on a shoe so more power to them.


Here are the results to my Great Debate (I felt compelled to make it official!):
Look at how some won by landslides--Lilly for instance! Tomorrow is my mother's birthday, happy birthday in advance mom!

I love the bar graphs, so professional looking! I went into the pink crab on Friday, and I don't think you were there :( But I loved it, the store is adorable and has everything I love! You are so lucky to have such a fun job!

So this is totally random but my husband and I were in Annapolis this past week and stopped in The Pink Crab (as we always do on visits). I thought you seemed familiar but couldn't place it until I got home today and was going through my blogs and saw your picture. So that is a funny little blog world / real world connection! :)

You are so creative and funny. These are definitely the funnest charts I have ever read.

Haha that's so funny.

I love that you made official graphs :)

happy day to your mom! i love your charts. you are too cute! i wear jacks over bonannos. 1. i don't like to wait that long for shoes, and jack rogers have the colors i'd want anyway and 2. there is too much floating about the internet about the jr v. sbs debate with some nasty things being said by the bonanno camp, and i just don't like that, and their is no actual evidence to either side of the story, so who really knows?
