Shop Dropping ar IKEA


We all know shoplifting is illegal. But what about shopdropping?

In shoplifting, the thief takes something from the marketplace without paying for it. In shopdropping, the person, in this case an artist, places items in the store inventory for people to purchase and makes no money from the sale.

On Black Friday, an artist, Michele Pred, did this very thing at IKEA. She took 10 of her paintings into the store with IKEA with “IKEA price tags” and placed them on the sales rack.

They all sold that weekend.

The painting itself is a barcode that reads, “You are what you buy.”
