Those eye-opening experiences do have their rewards, though. Take this sale sign made out of old magazine pages, for example, that I spotted in my neighborhood. I know you've seen this kind of crafty work before, but I admire the way its creator took a certain effort in choosing color-coordinated pages and strategically placing them in ways that call for further inspections. Why, do I see a collection of Mardi Gras beads sprinkled in there between the "S" and the "A" ? A woman in a white bikini with someone who looks like Mel Gibson and a guy doing a Michael Jackson dance in the "A?" A cowboy hiding out in the letter "L?" Or a pair of blue sneaks dangling inside the "E?"
Despite the advertised low prices, I didn't even enter the shop, let alone make a purchase. However, I can say that I most certainly enjoyed the sale.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
