Left Handed Store | Lefties Only | Not Just a Gift Shop
Left handed stores are not just about lefty products or left handed t shirts and gifts. Left handed stores are places where lefties can bond, share experiences, talk about trials, tribulations and successes. Be it online or a physical building, it’s a place where left handers can learn about lefty stuff and lefty people. Big and Tall (another rarity) have their bonding stores and places. LGBT have their bonding places. College students have clubs, bars and student unions. Lawyers, doctors and nurses all have their bonding places and Christians go to church.
Approximately only 10% of the population is left-handed, which makes lefties a minority. There are people out there who don’t even know a left hander because they are so rare. My husband is left handed and he was the first left hander I had met. So, when someone is left handed, they are a rare bird. Righties don’t understand how they write, cook or eat. So, when a lefty meets another lefty, it’s an automatic bond.
Most things in the world are designed for right handed people. So, the world doesn’t really make them feel special. Left handed people do have a holiday, but many don’t know that they have a holiday. If you’re a left hander and you are reading this, know that your day is August 13th.
"August 13 is designated International Left-Handers Day by Lefthanders International. It was first observed on the 13th of August, in the year 1976. As the name suggests, it is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences faced by left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. It celebrates their uniqueness and differences, who are from seven to ten percent of the world's population. Hundreds of millions of left-handed people in today's society have to adapt to use right handed tools and objects.
There’s also a more serious side to the day, which spreads awareness about the special needs of left-handed kids. Also, left-handed people may be more likely to develop schizophrenia.
International Left Handers Day is observed on Aug. 13 of each year by many left-handers since 1976, Left-handers Day was declared by the Left-Hander's Day Club on August 13, 1997. It was made to annually celebrate certain people's sinistrality and raise awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed."
It can be easy for everyone else to forget we're living in a right-handed world. But, left handed stores never forget, left handed blogs never forget, left handers themselves never forget. Being left handed is a gift and when you meet someone else with the same gift, it’s always a cool experience.
