The Big Issue : Edition 447
THEBIGISSUE6--25DEC2013 21 This year I've met more nice customers and sales have picked up. Christmas, for me, is about the people I care about. Things are better for me and I need to thank my customers for making me happy every day! Glenn F, Sydney. To all my customers and the people I talk to: thank you for your support. Happy Christmas and New Year. Hope to see you next year. Mick F, Sydney CBD and Neutral Bay. Merry Christmas to everyone. May you get most of what you want and all of what you need! John Mac, Sydney. I have been working hard for 14 years and it has not changed my life. I am waiting for Christmas to change my life and get rich. No more coming back every day. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2014. David Mac, Sydney. I have been selling TBI near Town Hall Station since 2002. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my regular customers. David L, Sydney. Thanks to all my regular customers for your support over the years (particularly in the search for Nemo). Your continued support would be greatly appreciated. Happy Christmas, and best wishes for the New Year. Eddy M, Sydney. To my awesome customers, thank you for your wonderful support this year. It's been an interesting transition to the suburbs. I wish you all the best for the Christmas period. I can't wait to see you in 2014. Marcus, Concord and Five Dock. I have recently started working as a vendor, and have found my customers very polite and nice. I enjoy working with The Big Issue so I just want to give you a BIG WISH YOU. Thank you! Chris R, Sydney. Everyone, have a great Christmas and be very safe. Don't forget to buy a mag for Christmas. Thanks to all the staf at The Big Issue. Bradley, Sydney. I like selling at Edgeclif because the people are very nice and the guy in the cofee shop gives me a discount on my cofee and food. I also get a lot of tips and it gives me a safety net. Manny, Edgeclif Station. Thank you to all my very nice customers who have supported me as a vendor in Redfern, Rosebay and now in Maroubra. I would like to say thank you and a very Happy Christmas. To all my Jewish customers: have a lovely Chanukah. Pamela, Maroubra. A good Christmas to all the vendors. Looking forward to seeing you all next year. For Christmas, I hope for a new pitch in beautiful Byron Bay. Mark JW, Sydney. Another great year. Thanks to the guys at David Jones, Sheridan and Chrysler Cafe for keeping hope alive. A special thanks to my family at the Verdict Café. And remember: stable relationships are for horses. Athol ('Ax'), Sydney. I'd like to wish both present and past customers Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Have a safe time throughout the festive season. (Old) Bill, Sydney. Thanks to all customers for their support and encouragement. Every bit helps. One customer bought me lunch one day and sometimes tips are given. I'm touched by the thoughtfulness and consideration of some people, as well as their generosity. Stephen W, Sydney. Thank you to all of my customers for their support during 2013. Have a great Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Special thanks to the staf of Cafe Bello for all your cofee. Dave S, Burwood. A warm Christmas is unusual for me. The most important thing is health, enjoying family and friends, and being able to work hard and sell well. Keep smiling over Christmas -- it's good for your health!! Richard C, Camperdown. Everyone is very friendly to me at Christmas; The Big Issue is very friendly to me always. Peter, Susan and Petra are nice to me, and they love me selling the mag. Bradley, Dee Why and Collaroy. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone! More importantly, I hope everyone is safe over the holidays. Because you did something good buying this magazine, I hope something good comes to you. Vendors might be hitting hard times, but can bounce back because of customers like you. Grant (the polite guy), Sydney. Nothing receives nothing, so thanks for nothing. Love Campbell. Campbell, Sydney. To all my customers and friends: I hope Xmas and the New Year are full of times of happiness with family, friends and loved ones. Always maintain a sense of 'huma'!! Rob S, Sydney. Thanks to everyone who supports my small business; that's all of you at The Big Issue and the Body Shops, and my awesome customers. Without all of you, I'd have the Black Dog pulling me down -- way, way down. So thank you, all, for keeping me afloat, saving me from being broke and broken, damaged beyond repair... When you walk up and buy a mag and have something nice to say, do know, you changed my whole day. Let's hope 2014 brings luck, health and laughter. Be good. And if you can't be good, be lucky and have a happy holiday. Nemo, Sydney.
