They say that if you want it, you should come and get it. Intellectually, that makes sense. But realistically, not so much.
Unless you are Christine Santora and Justin Gignac, the genius Greenwich Village couple who have devised a method for getting what they want.
On their website, Wants for Sale, they sell paintings of objects of desire for the price of the product in question. When the artwork is purchased, they buy that thing. See? They went and got their want.
The kiddie-like, pop pieces are all over the mark. Junk food junkies will understand their need for buffalo wings and celery with ranch ($12.70). Tech geeks can relate to their iPhone obsession ($649.17). Boozehounds know how necessary a beer is after a hard day’s work ($7, which includes tip). And some rich A-hole can give them financial security with a whopping million buckaroos.
Why would you bother? Well, you can’t always explain what you want.
Now hurry. This stuff is going fast.
