Let’s get something straight here – hipsters are nobody’s friend.
From the people who made you believe wearing specs without a prescription was cool comes the latest over-hyped trend – cotton.
And we’re not talking about the cotton you wear, because that we could handle.
It turns out hipsters have been paying big bucks for stems of cotton branches. Yep, we’ll just let that sit for a moment.
According to ABC News, in some Sydney suburbs, people have been handing over up to $35 for a single branch of cotton, just so they can display it in a hand blown glass vase at home or whatever the hell they’re doing with it.
Florists have even started using it in their arrangements, with people paying up to $50 for a bunch.
