Since 1831, Pumblechook & Figg, Impourter of Thynges, has brought you, the consumer, any manner of mercantile goods to fill the ever-expanding sense of despair in your daily doings. Since then, P&F has grown into the world's leading supplier of everything, with warehouses on every block in the world. If we don't have it, you're making it up like a goddamn liar.
O, lucky sir or madam! How jealous we are of you, for you grasp in your hands no mere catalog, but the once-only joy of beholding Pumblechook & Figg's glories for the first time! And also because you have known what love is, a feeling we ache to know for even one burning second!
So from our massive family to your paltry, probably starving one, Merry Holiday Season. May your wrens be lively, and your pickled plums inedible.
