I could have sworn this has been posted before, but damned if I can find it.

It's really amazing how many truly ugly "shopping cart" icons there are.

Interesting post.

Maybe websites should not use shopping carts at all. What's is the point, other than cheapening the whole process?

I mean, who doesn't love a regular shopping bag that can comfortably hold all the stuff you care to throw inside?

On shopping cart icons.

We were integrating a product here at work that is used by car dealerships to manage their loans and whatnot with banks.

It used shopping cart terminology and icons and what not.

So as a result, dealerships, to deal with their line of credit on a specific car first had to put it in the shopping cart.

We recommended that they make the shopping cart icon much larger. And then we told them that the whole shopping cart paradigm was going to die.

I'm sure this is a double post too, but hey. ;)

Some interesting icons. Some bloody awful ones too...

If it was a double post, then at least the domain would show up in the search since day 1.

Sad life Ro must have, to have to spend so much time on something of so little significance.....

Might as well collect dust. I know I do.

It was mentioned on the green in a thread about icon sites. Deserved it's own post though.

Ah thanks ALongDecember!

And none of these images are copyright by the original site or someone else? Is this truly fair use? Boring as heck, for sure, but fair use?

Hey Me3dia, it was "in the white" of boingboing a while back. And I think I read about it in a magazine (eek!) as well.

It was on Kottke's remaindered links, too.

But thanks for linking again. It deserved a second once-over. Definitely interesting stuff.
