Today is the 20th anniversary of the shopping cart. I have a love hate relationship with shopping carts. I almost always get the one with the wonky wheel. You know; the one that won’t go straight and makes you look like an impaired shopping cart driver. If you are like me I end up with at least one item in the cart that I didn’t have on my list. They are very handy. Shopping carts have changed over the years. The first shopping cart was designed to have two baskets and was essentially a chair with wheels and two baskets. Ingenious, right? Today we have virtual shopping carts. You will find one on this very website. So today when you fill your virtual shopping cart with gifts (check out our Lilly Pulitzer cups and really cute Kate Spade pencil bags)and necessities (pens and notebooks top my list) let’s celebrate this fantastic invention. Thank you, Sylvan Nathan Goldman, for the invention that lets us fill our carts to the brim. Happy shopping.
