I was taken back to my childhood when I saw this sign in the window of a Brooklyn boutique. First of all, it's sale time, and these days, any way to save a dime is a welcomed sight. And secondly, the display makes clever use of a Lite-Bright screen just like the one my sister and I played with for days on end in the 1970s.
We would plug the Lite-Bright into the corner of the living room right by the piano, and spend hours in front of the plastic board creating images -- a snowman, a chicken or maybe a boat -- out of it's translucent plastic pegs.
This clever display also reminded me of the tune that ran along with the Lite-Bright ads from the 1970s:
"Lite-Brite, makin' things with light.
Outta sight, makin' things with Lite-Brite."
I leave you with a video of the ad from 1971 --
The Elegant Thrifter
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous
